Red Hat Developer image

The release of the latest Red Hat developer suite version 12 brings with it a name change from Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio to Red Hat CodeReady Studio. The focus here is not on the Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces, a cloud and container development experience, but on the locally installed developers studio.

The new release also brings with it the questions about how to get started with the various Red Hat integration, data, and process automation product toolsets that are not installed out of the box. This series of articles showcases how to install each set of tools and explains the products they are supporting. The hope is that an easy getting started experience will help you make informed decisions about the tooling that you might want to use on your next development project.

There are three different software packs that offer tooling for various Red Hat middleware technologies:

  1. Red Hat Integration Development
  2. Red Hat Process Automation Development
  3. Red Hat Data Virtualization Development

This article will outline how to get started with the Red Hat Integration tooling with any of the CodeReady Studio version 12 releases.

Red Hat CodeReady Studio can be obtained through the Customer Portal (login required) or via the early access downloads on After installation, start it up, and you will see a welcoming Red Hat Central tab with at the bottom a tab to look at the available toolsets labeled Software/Update.

At the time of this writing, there are several options you can install found on the Software/Update tab. Selecting the Software/Update tab at the bottom reveals the Red Hat Development tooling add-ons. Let's select JBoss Fuse Development checkbox.

Note that if you previously installed any of these tooling add-ons, your list of options will not include them all. Clicking on the Install/Update button starts the add-on installation and restarting the CodeReady Studio at the end completes the process. If you are interested in what is being installed, you can examine the pop-up listing of components and versions. Note that this will change as the early access progresses towards final releases.

Stay tuned for more articles in this series that will detail the installation of the remaining development add-on tooling.
