Hello World!

1. Download Development Suite for Windows


Download the Red Hat Development Suite installer to get the latest development tools from Red Hat. For the download, you will need to register with Choose either the online installer which will download only the selected components, or the bundled installer.

NOTE: If you haven’t directly downloaded the Red Hat Development Suite from Red Hat Developer Program, your account may not have the correct entitlements to install the Container Development Kit. The easiest way to add the entitlements is to visit Red Hat Developer Program and initiate a download of the Red Hat Development Suite. We are working on a fix to enable you to add the entitlements to your account without starting a new download.

2. Install Red Hat Developer Tools

  4. Select the components to install:

    After the installer determines whether any of the components are already installed you will be presented with a list to choose from. By default, Red Hat Development Suite will install Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio IDE, Red Hat Container Development Kit and any required additional components.

    1. Should you prefer not to install Developer Studio, uncheck the box next to RED HAT JBOSS DEVELOPER STUDIO.  You will still be able to use Red Hat Container Development Kit and Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform through the command line and the browser. You can also choose not to install OpenJDK 8.

    2. To use the Red Hat Container Development Kit you will need a hypervisor to run the included Red Hat Enterprise Linux VM. For Windows, the default choice is Hyper-V, which is included with many newer versions of Windows but is not enabled by default. If Hyper-V is not enabled, Development Suite will install VirtualBox. For more information, see the CDK 3.4 Getting Started Guide.

    3. A number of additional components are available to install including Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Red Hat JBoss Fuse. Scroll down and select any additional packages you'd like to install.
