Red Hat Expands Developer Offerings with JBoss Developer Studio

Dec 11, 2007

Red Hat today announced the global availability of JBoss Developer Studio, the first open source, Eclipse-based, integrated development environment combining tooling with runtime. JBoss Developer Studio provides a simple, powerful and easy-to-use solution for developers utilizing JBoss Enterprise Middleware. The solution provides a stable end-to-end, lifecycle environment for application development and deployment, enabling enterprises to respond more quickly and efficiently to rapidly changing business requirements.

JBoss Developer Studio eliminates the need to assemble individual development environments, allowing developers and IT departments to utilize the complete solution from JBoss in one easily delivered installation. Featuring pre-integrated tools and out-of-the-box capabilities, the solution leverages the high-calibre Eclipse-based developer tools that were first made available as open source software on Since its initial beta release in August, there have been over 100,000 downloads of the test builds for Developer Studio, serving as a clear indicator of the developer community’s interest in an open source and friction-free development platform for developing their applications.

“JBoss Developer Studio makes open source middleware software easy to consume, maintain, use and support in cross-platform development environments,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, Middleware Business at Red Hat. “This solution will appeal to developers, while more effectively ensuring that enterprises can develop software better and faster, and with greater confidence. We believe Developer Studio will accelerate the use of open source software around the globe and throughout enterprises.”

JBoss Developer Studio incorporates Eclipse tooling, integrated JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, and also comes with Red Hat Enterprise Linux for development use and full access to Red Hat Network. Developer Studio also features tooling for technologies, including Java EE, JBoss Seam and Ajax, Hibernate and Persistence, JBoss jBPM, Struts and Spring IDE. The combination of these components provides developers with a stable solution that offers matched tooling, easy upgrades and the same runtime environment in development as in production.
