Start evaluating Red Hat JBoss EAP 7 in less than 1 minute

Wouldn’t it be great if you could try out a new product within minutes, or even seconds? As a developer your time is limited, and the last thing you want is to spend large amounts of effort downloading, installing, or configuring a product just to try it out. Or even worse, .. get stuck troubleshooting the process of getting a product up and running that you’re not even sure you want to use.


Red Hat is working with Codenvy to make it easier for developers to evaluate Red Hat technologies by allowing them to launch products in a browser-based IDE that is also running a helpful quickstart. It’s as simple as clicking a “Try It Now” button for the product you want to evaluate, and within ~30 seconds you can start editing the quickstart code within a cloud IDE.

What’s new with the Red Hat Developer Program?

The Red Hat Developer Program was introduced to make it easier for any developer to create quality software.  The program began with great developer tools and content provided through our developers.redhat.com website, which allows developers to download and use our enterprise products for development purposes through a free membership.  This enables you to develop, prototype, test, and demo your software on the enterprise products that can be trusted to run the most demanding of enterprise production environments.

Here are the products we offer through the program today, free for development use:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux

Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform

Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio

Red Hat JBoss Fuse

Red Hat JBoss Web Server

Red Hat Container Development Kit

Red Hat JBoss A-MQ

Red Hat JBoss BRMS

Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite

Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualization

Red Hat Mobile Application Platform

OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat

Red Hat JBoss Data Grid

And now we’ve taken a step further, by enabling program members to better self-supporttheir developer issues. We recognize that developers may have preferences in the Community Platforms they want to use. Some are accustomed to forums which have been around for many years. Whereas others may prefer using a Q&A site. So we’ve integrated two Community Platforms with the developers.redhat.com site that you can now use  Red Hat Developer Forums and Stack Overflow. This also gives us the ability to aggregate all Red Hat developer content, and soon you’ll be able to search across all developer conversations and content to find the information you’re looking for.
