Announcing Developer Studio 11.3.0.GA, JBoss Tools 4.5.3 for Eclipse Oxygen.3a

The community editions of JBoss Tools 4.5.3 and JBoss Developer Studio 11.3 for Eclipse Oxygen.3a are here waiting for you. Check it out!

Installation

JBoss Developer Studio comes with everything pre-bundled in its installer. Simply download it from our JBoss Products page and run it like this:

java -jar jboss-devstudio-<installername>.jar

JBoss Tools or Bring-Your-Own-Eclipse (BYOE) JBoss Developer Studio require a bit more:

This release requires at least Eclipse 4.7 (Oxygen) but we recommend using the latest Eclipse 4.7.3a Oxygen JEE Bundle since then you get most of the dependencies preinstalled.

Once you have installed Eclipse, you can either find us on the Eclipse Marketplace under “JBoss Tools” or “Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio”.

For JBoss Tools, you can also use our update site directly.

Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) With Nested KVM

Why

If you are like me, you probably prefer to install new and exploratory software in a fresh virtual machine (VM) or container to insulate your laptop/desktop from software pollution (TM). Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) relies on virtualization to create a Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) virtual machine to run OpenShift (based on Kubernetes). Red Hat specifically supports installation of the CDK on Windows, macOS, and RHEL Server, but if you are running Fedora, RHEL Workstation, or even CentOS, you will run into trouble. If you are not running a supported desktop, you can always use a RHEL Server virtual machine, and this tutorial is for you.

Debug your OpenShift Java application with Microsoft VSCode and Red Hat CDK

Recently, there has been a lot of buzz about two seemingly different products: Red Hat OpenShift and Microsoft Visual Studio Code (VSCode). Thanks to the help of Red Hat, the Java language is now supported inside of VSCode development environment. As Java is a first class citizen in Red Hat OpenShift, we will see how it is possible to debug your Java code running inside containers on OpenShift (thanks to Red Hat Container Development Kit) from within the VSCode IDE running on your desktop.

Steps to replace nip.io with xip.io in CDK/Minishift

If you’re a Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) or upstream Minishift user, you would have been affected by the unavailability of nip.io. When you create a route for an application running in OpenShift (provided by Minishift) it uses nip.io for routing to the Minishift VM IP address. As a result, it is impossible to access the route created with nip.io suffix.

HOW-TO setup 3scale OpenID Connect (OIDC) Integration with RH SSO

This step-by-step guide is a follow-up to the Red Hat 3scale API Management new 2.1 version announcement. As many of you will know, this new version simplifies the integration between APIcast gateway and Red Hat Single Sign-On through OpenID Connect (OIDC) for API authentication. As a result, now you can select OpenID Connect as your authentication mechanism besides API Key, App Key pair, and OAuth. Also, the on-premise version adds a new component that synchronizes the client creation on the Red Hat Single Sign-On domain.

Dynamic Storage

How to configure persistent storage with OpenShift or Kubernetes for development environment

  • We know that containers in Openshift or Kubernetes don’t persist data. Every time we start an application, it is started in a new container with an immutable Docker image.
    Hence, any persisted data in the file systems is lost when the container stops. Hence if an application or container is rebuilt or restarted than we can’t view previous logs or if we are using containers with mysql or any other database then schema, tables, and all data will be lost, if using any messaging broker than if there is journal file than it will also not persist.
    Hence, these ephemeral containers cannot be used in production environment. In a production environment, we must configure a shared storage.
  • But what about the development environment, because we might not always have enough labs and VM’s available. To rescue we have volume type hostPath, which can be easily set up with Minishift and Minikube.
  • This article will provide details how to setup hostPath volume type.
