    JBoss Eclipse IDE



    JBossIDE is now JBossTools

    The JBossIDE project has been renamed and merged with the contribution from Exadel into the new project JBoss Tools.

    This page is just here to not break existing links and to provide access to old releases if needed for some reason

    You can go to the new JBossTools project page by clicking on this link.




    JBoss Eclipse IDE is a set of plugins designed to be integrated in the Eclipse IDE runtime environment. The current features cover the following:


    • Very comfortable and sophisticated support for Xdoclet.

    • Debugging and monitoring of JBoss servers and controlling of their life cycles.

    • An easy way to configure the packaging layout of archives (packed or exploded).

    • A simple way to deploy the packaged and/or exploded archive to a JBoss server


    Some parts of the J2EE development process are not yet covered. That is J2EE-specific project management (templates and wizards). This has still to be done. Anyway, the main focus for the next version is on these topics.
