The IDE plug-in provides interactive assistance for developers. It streamlines the process of migrating applications by providing inline guidance and quick fixes that can automate complex steps in the migration and modernization process.

Red Hat OpenShift Dev Spaces / Eclipse Che

The migration toolkit for runtimes plug-in runs within Red Hat OpenShift Dev Spaces (formerly Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces) or in your own version of Eclipse Che, providing assistance during the development process. OpenShift Dev Spaces, a next-generation IDE for developer teams built on Eclipse Che, eliminates local environment configuration for your entire team. It uses Kubernetes and containers to provide any member of the development team with a consistent, secure, and zero-configuration development environment. The in-browser IDE lets you code, build, test, and run applications exactly as they run on production from any machine. If you are moving to containers and cloud-native development, this is for you.

IntelliJ IDEA

The migration toolkit for runtimes plug-in for IntelliJ platform-based IDEs provides tooling to accelerate application migration. It marks migration issues in the source code, provides guidance to fix problems, and offers automatic code replacement when possible.


The Maven plug-in for the migration toolkit for runtimes integrates into the Maven build process, so you can continuously evaluate migration and modernization efforts with each iteration of source code. It is designed for developers who want updates with each build, providing numerous reports highlighting the analysis results. You can even use it to enforce certain code standards as part of your build process.
