Announcing Thorntail 2.4 general availability

At this year’s Red Hat Summit, Red Hat announced Thorntail 2.4 general availability for Red Hat customers through a subscription to Red Hat Application Runtimes.

Introduction to Thorntail

Thorntail is the new name for WildFly Swarm, and it bundles everything you need to develop and run Thorntail and MicroProfile applications by packaging server runtime libraries with your application code and running it with java -jar. It speeds up the transition from monoliths to microservices and takes advantage of your existing industry standard Java EE technology experience.

Eclipse Wild Web Developer adds a powerful YAML editor with built-in Kubernetes support

Eclipse Wild Web Developer adds a powerful YAML editor with built-in Kubernetes support

YAML Ain’t Markup Language (YAML) has grown increasingly popular during the past few years. It is a human-readable text-based format for specifying configuration information and is used in many platforms, such as Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift.

Eclipse Wild Web Developer is a language-based extension that provides a rich development experience for developing typical web and configuration files in the Eclipse IDE. According to the project page, “Eclipse Wild Web Developer relies on existing mainstream and maintained components to provide the language smartness, over popular configuration files like TextMate and protocols like Language Server Protocol  or Debug Adapter Protocol.”

Recently, the YAML Language Server has been integrated into Eclipse Wild Web Developer. This is a feature-rich YAML Language Server implementation that also powers editors including VSCode, Eclipse Che, and Atom. This integration brings all the features that Language Server supports, including validation, autocompletion, hover support, and document outlining to the Eclipse Generic Editor, making it much easier to write and maintain YAML files.

Announcing Red Hat CodeReady Studio, the latest evolution of Red Hat Developer Studio

Announcing Red Hat CodeReady Studio, the latest evolution of Red Hat Developer Studio

Red Hat has been shipping a distribution of Eclipse IDE for years now, including all of the great features of Eclipse along with the add-ons, plugins, and tooling that make working with our products easy and enjoyable. These distributions have gone by different names over the years to indicate how they fit into the Red Hat ecosystem, and to tap into the trust that developers have when they think about Red Hat and what a Red Hat product means for them: it’ll be reliable; it’ll have a published lifecycle; it’s built from source; and if you submit a bug, we’ll fix it (and give the fix to the community). This change is no different.

Red Hat CodeReady Studio is the latest evolution of Red Hat Developer Studio, which itself was an evolution of JBoss Developer Studio. We’re proud to include our distribution of Eclipse IDE in the expanding CodeReady portfolio. Based on the latest Eclipse 4.11, with the latest additions of JBoss Tools and end-to-end testing that ensures everything works as expected, developers can count on the same great experience they’ve grown used to. With tools for working with Fuse and other middleware products and connectors for Red Hat OpenShift that enable super-fast, container-native “inner loop” development cycles, CodeReady Studio is absolutely one of the best desktop IDEs an enterprise JavaTM developer can use.
