Factories in Eclipse Che are a great way to onboard new teammates. This article explains how to create a workspace that includes a code base and various tools. From there, customize the workspace and create a factory from it. Finally, see how to customize the factory so that anyone who uses it gets a complete development environment pre-loaded with code, a running Tomcat server, and a SpringBoot application.
