Red Hat announced on Monday an initiative meant to boost its development tools business and reach out to more programmers. The open-source software company said that it has established a partnership with Exadel in which Exadel will open source its Web development tools at JBoss.org, a Red Hat open-source project site. As part of the arrangement, Red Hat will take over technical direction of those projects and build ties to JBoss open-source server software, said Bryan Che, a product manager at Red Hat. "What you'll see through this announcement is that we will be bringing a lot more to the table in terms of offerings to developers," Che said. By expanding in open-source development tools, Red Hat intends to boost its revenue from support and distribution services. The company also hopes to encourage programmers to create applications that run on Red Hat's Linux software and JBoss Java application server, he said. "What we are really looking to do is roll out an integrated … [Read more...] about Red Hat expands developer tools business

Red Hat, Inc., Raleigh, NC, has finally released JBoss Developer Studio, an open-source Eclipse -based integrated development environment (IDE) that combines tooling with runtime.

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) public clouds are commonplace. We all know Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Compute Engine. Platforms-as-a-Service (PaaS) that enable you to build cloud-native applications are rarer. Red Hat is changing this with its new release of Red Hat OpenShift Online (RHOO). RHOO is based on OpenShift, which is Red Hat's private PaaS cloud, but this is more than just a PaaS. Red Hat is providing an enterprise-ready container platform based on integrated Docker containers, which run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) and are managed by Kubernetes. RHOO runs on AWS. While AWS runs globally, RHOO's Stater plan is available on AWS US East and West. The Pro plan is only available on US East for now. It will soon be available in EMEA and APAC. The point of OpenShift Online is to enable developers to build cloud-native apps on a cloud-based container platform without having to worry about the complexity of provisioning, managing, and scaling … [Read more...] about Red Hat opens new OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service public cloud

Using a newly minted protocol for language and IDE interoperability, Red Hat is expanding Java developers' ability to use Microsoft's Visual Studio Code editor.This functionality was enabled by last week's release of Red Hat's Java language support extension to the Visual Studio Code marketplace. The extension is based on Red Hat's Java language server, an implementation of the Language Server Protocol recently forged by Red Hat, Microsoft, and CodEnvy. Based on JSON-RPC 2.0, the protocol defines calls and data structures to implement common language functionality on IDEs and editors.Red Hat's free extension enables Java language "smartness" for Visual Studio Code, said Gorkem Ercan, Red Hat principal software engineer. "When the extension is not present, VS Code can only provide syntax coloring while editing Java artifacts," he said. "When the extension is enabled, VS Code can assist developers with code completion, error reporting, code formatting, and similar features that … [Read more...] about Red Hat links Java to Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code
