Raleigh, N.C.-based Red Hat recently released the beta version of its Red Hat Developer Studio, a new Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) for its JBoss Enterprise Middleware and Red Hat Enterprise Linux solutions family.
According to the company, the release gives developers integrated Eclipse-based development tools and runtime environment available entirely in open source, which the company hopes will ultimately help accelerate the enterprise shift to an Open Source Architecture.
Developer Studio combines products contributed to Red Hat by Exadel in March 2007 - Exadel Studio Pro, RichFaces, and Ajax4jsf - with the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, which includes JBoss Seam, Hibernate, and the JBoss Application Server runtime, into a powerful development environment for enterprise Java, Ajax, and SOA applications.
The final release of Developer Studio, which will be licensed under the GNU Public License v2 (GPL), is targeted for later this summer and will be available via Red Hat Subscriptions.
The Developer Studio beta is available at www.redhat.com/developers/rhds/index.htmlInterested in information related to this topic? Subscribe to our twice-monthly Information Technology eNewsletter.
