A growing set of editors and IDEs provides specific tooling for development of applications based on Apache Camel. Historically, there was only Eclipse Fuse Tooling, which was based on the Eclipse Desktop IDE. Then, an IntelliJ plugin was created. Both of these tools are tightly coupled to the specific IDE APIs. Consequently, they have the drawback of not easily sharing the development effort.
Supported editors and IDEs
Thanks to Language Server Protocol, with a core server and several configurations or small client development, Apache Camel Language can now be enjoyed on a growing set of environments:

This is the second half of my series covering how to use Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces to develop a Java Enterprise Edition (now Jakarta EE) application using Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) in the cloud on Red Hat OpenShift/Kubernetes. In the first part, we saw how to:
- Bring your own tools by extending Red Hat’s provided stacks
- Register your own stack within Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces
- Create your workspace using your stack and embedding your JEE project located on a Git repository
For this second part, we’ll start configuring the workspace by adding some helpful settings and commands for building and running a JBoss EAP project. We’ll then see how to use the local JBoss EAP instance for deploying and debugging our application. Finally, we’ll create a factory so that we’ll be able to share our work and propose an on-demand configured development environment for anyone that needs to collaborate on our project.

Recently the Eclipse Che community has been working to make Eclipse Theia the default web IDE for Eclipse Che 7. We’ve added a plugin model to Eclipse Theia that is compatible with Visual Studio Code (VS Code) extensions. Che 7 users will eventually be able to take advantage of extensions that have been written for VS Code in their cloud-based developer workspaces. It’s worth pointing out the popularity of VS Code extensions. Red Hat has contributed extensions covering Java, XML, YAML, OpenShift, and dependency analytics. The Java extension provided by Red Hat has been downloaded over 10 million times!
If you aren’t familiar with Eclipse Theia, Che 6 and earlier used a GWT-based IDE. While it is possible to develop and use plugins in that environment, it is cumbersome. Coming from tools like VS Code, developers expect to be able to customize and extend their workspaces at runtime. Eclipse Theia is an extensible open-source framework to develop multi-language IDEs using state-of-the-art web technologies. Moving to Theia as the default IDE for Che 7 provides a foundation to enrich the developer workspaces in Che. See the series of articles by Stevan LeMeur for more information about what’s coming in Che 7.
This article explains why we decided to add the new plugin model to Eclipse Theia and the benefits for Eclipse Che 7 developer workspaces. I also cover how the new plugin model differs from the existing Theia extension model.

It has been just one month since the announcement of the release of Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces 1.0.0 Beta. Because the cloud/browser-based IDE may be full of promises, developers are usually suspicious, considering them as toys for occasional coders but not suitable for software craftsmen. But you’ll quickly see that Red Hat’s offering can be a good companion for building tailor-made environments.
The goal of this two-part series is to give a walk-through of using Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces to develop a Java EE (now Jakarta EE) application using Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP). I’ll give you details on how to bring your own tools, configure your workspace with helpful commands for JBoss EAP, and share everything so you can easily onboard new developers.

Eclipse Che 6.6 Release Notes
Eclipse Che 6.6 is here! Since the release of Che 6.0, the community has added a number of new capabilities:
- Kubernetes support: Run Che on Kubernetes and deploy it using Helm.
- Hot server updates: Upgrade Che with zero downtime.
- C/C++ support: ClangD Language Server was added.
- Camel LS support: Apache Camel Language Server Protocol (LSP) support was added.
- <strong”>Eclipse Java Development Tools (JDT) Language Server (LS): Extended LS capabilities were added for Eclipse Che.
- Faster workspace loading: Images are pulled in parallel with the new UI.
Che is a cloud IDE and containerized workspace server. You can get started with Che by using the following links:

Discoverability and ease of installation of Apache Camel tooling based on the Language Server Protocol has been improved. Manual download and installation of binaries is no longer necessary! For the Eclipse desktop IDE and the VS Code environment you can now find and install the Camel tooling directly from the marketplaces for each development environment.
Camel Language Server is now also available in Red Hat OpenShift.io!
In this article, I will show you how you can install Camel tooling via the marketplaces for Eclipse and VS Code. I will also show how to enable Camel tooling in your OpenShift.io workspace.

2018 has been a busy year already, and we’re not even halfway through. Eclipse Che 6 brought team and enterprise features including multi-user and multi-tenancy as well as a large number of other great capabilities (you can read all about it in our Che 6 release post).
We followed Che 6 GA with already 4 minor releases and the community worked hard in order to add even more capabilities:
- Helm chart for Kubernetes deployment
- C/C++ intellisense with integration of ClangD
- Recover capabilities for OpenShift/Kubernetes
- And almost 150 bug fixes

Apache Camel empowers you to define routing and mediation rules in a variety of domain-specific languages, including a Java-based Fluent API, Spring or Blueprint XML Configuration files, and a Scala DSL. Apache Camel uses URIs to work directly with any kind of Transport or messaging model such as HTTP, ActiveMQ, JMS, JBI, SCA, MINA or CXF, as well as pluggable Components and Data Format options. Apache Camel is a small library with minimal dependencies for easy embedding in any Java application.

In a couple of weeks (October 24-26), EclipseCon Europe is going to take place in Ludwigsburg, near Stuttgart, in Germany.

If you’re a regular on this blog, you’re probably well aware of Red Hat’s efforts in improving the Eclipse IDE and of the rise of Language Servers Protocol to develop common developer tools. Red Hat fully jumped on this opportunity to better factorize and share language-specific logic which is very likely to benefit to multiple editors, IDEs and languages at once. It also better separates the concerns of what an editor or IDE is supposed to do (text edition, integration with SCM, debug and deployment workflows…) with the target language itself. With this approach, a single language server can enable language features to multiple development tools at once, and a single development tool can be made more generic to support new languages for free, just by binding to the language server through the protocol.
