Red Hat releases JBoss Developer Studio 2
From the 'developers, developers, developers' files:
Red Hat is expanding its software development portfolio today with the official release of JBoss Developer Studio 2 - Portfolio Edition. It's an interesting release that packages together an Eclipse based dev tool with JBoss' Enterprise
Application, Portal, SOA and Data Services Platforms.
The JBoss Developer Studio tool itself is an interesting one -- it was originally developed as a closed source technology by tech vendor Exadel called Exadel Studio Pro. Red Hat acquired several Exaled technologies in March of 2007 including the Studio. In December of 2007, Red Hat completely open sourced the tool and renamed it JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS).
The timing of Red Hat's announcement is important too. This week is Eclipsecon the big yearly gathering of those that participate in the Eclipse ecosystem -- which includes JBoss.
