Red Hat Releases New Development Tools
I’m extremely pleased to announce the latest releases of our Red Hat developer tools, available on multiple platforms. The general theme of this release is expanded usability, product integration, expanded support for Middleware products in Development Suite, plus the brand new addition of Kompose and the DevTools channel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This collection of tools has been assembled into an easy-to-use installer to help software developers quickly and easily put together a development environment to create containerized enterprise Java apps by installing OpenShift on their desktop. The Developer Tools Installer will automatically download, install and configure the selected tools on macOS, Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Development Suite also simplifies the installation and configuration of EAP, Fuse, and Kompose. As always, it’s available at no-cost from developers.redhat.com/downloads.
