JBoss Developer Studio 9 – more Docker, OpenShift and WildFly
JBoss Developer Studio 9 for Eclipse Mars is now available for download. Some advances include new Server Adapters, OpenShift v3 enhancements and more Docker functionality. A new list of features can be found in the documentation but here is a list of highlights:
WildFly 10 and EAP 7 Server Adapters
New server adapters for JBoss EAP 7 and WildFly 10 have been added to the toolset, allowing you to enjoy all the past benefits, but with all the newest runtimes.
Quick Access to Launch LiveReload
LiveReload monitors changes in the file system. As soon as you save a file, it is preprocessed as needed, and the browser is refreshed. Users can now launch LiveReload from the ‘Quick Access’ menu, or using the Ctrl+3 (or Cmd+3) keyboard shortcut.This will first display the dialog to create and start a LiveReload server. Then, this will open the current element (a selected file in the Project Explorer, a selected module in the Servers view or the content of the active editor) in the browser, without even having to use the ‘Open With>Web Browser via LiveReload Server’ contextual menu.
