Max: Does this then replace the former JBoss IDE (now called JBoss Tools)? In other words can you launch JBoss from within the Eclipse IDE with this release.
Yes, and you have always been able to launch jboss from within the eclipse ide (but maybe you mean jboss 4.2? ;)
Sorry--away from the forum for several days. Actually I was wondering if you can still launch JBoss 3.2.x
as far as i know then yes - 3.2.x support is provided by wtp.
Thanks for taking the time to answer!
I'm working with JB AS 4.0.4 using Eclipse 3.1.2 + JB IDE 1.6.0. Now I'm going to migrate to JB AS 4.2.1 and it seems I have also to "upgrade" the IDE. I saw there are both JB IDE 2.0 and JB Tools, so I'm a little confused.
In order to clarify/summarize the several Eclipse-JBoss IDE/Tool configurations I would ask you some questions.
1. Each release of JB IDE/Tools is compatible only with a specific version of Eclipse. Isn't it?
JB IDE 1.6.0 <--> Eclipse 3.1.x
JB IDE 2.0 <--> Eclipse 3.2.x + WTP 1.5.x
JB Tools <--> Eclipse 3.3 + WTP 2.0
2. Is Eclipse 3.3 + WTP 2.0 the only available configuration for JB AS 4.2.1 runtime?
3. When a stable version of JB Tools will be released?
Thank you in advance.
1) Yes - by chance it turned out that way.
2) No, eclipse it self provides a (basic) jboss as 4.2 runtime adapter. Ours is targeted for 3.3 and WTP 2.0
So, if I understand correctly, we will be able to get the equivalent of the JBoss IDE plugin separately and deployed to our Eclipse 3.3 instance? Like we were able to do with older version of the JBoss IDE and Eclipse?
Yes - that project is called JBoss Tools.
