The Visual Studio (VS) Code IDE is one of the most-used platforms for JavaScript, C#, and Python developers and is quickly becoming one of the top three tooling environments at Red Hat. VS Code is highly customizable and offers a healthy and growing marketplace for extensions of all types and technologies, including an extension for Yeoman.

Jump start camel projects with the new yeoman-based project generator

Jump start camel projects with the new yeoman-based project generator

The Red Hat Fuse Tooling team recently broadened its focus from a cross-platform, single-IDE (Eclipse) approach to a cross-platform, cross-IDE approach (Eclipse, VS Code, Che), starting several concerted efforts to provide tools that work across platforms and development environments. Supporting VS Code has become a priority that led us to explore using the Yeoman framework for project and file generation to provide developers a way to jump start their Fuse/Camel development efforts.

This article describes the Yeoman framework and the new Yeoman-based Camel-Project generator the Fuse Tooling team created, and it shows how to install and run the generator.

The updating Fuse Tooling is available in Red Hat Developer Studio 12.0.0, the desktop IDE that is based on Eclipse 4.8 Photon. You can also get the new wizard by adding JBoss Tools 4.6 to your existing Eclipse 4.8 Photon installation by downloading it directly, or installing via the Eclipse Marketplace.

Getting Started with Global Beans in Fuse Tooling 10.0.0

Getting Started with Global Beans in Fuse Tooling 10.0.0

Red Hat JBoss Fuse provides an open source, lightweight, modular platform that enables you to connect a variety of services and systems across your application environment. And, included with Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, is the Fuse Tooling that helps you take advantage of that platform.

The route editor initially focused on the parts of the Camel configuration inside the route or Camel context element, but in version 8.0.0, we began adding support for global elements such as data formats and endpoints on the Configurations tab. With the 10.0 release, we add support for beans that are outside the route.
