New Delhi, India, October 01, 2014: Red Hat, the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today unveiled a new developer subscription program and resources for members of the JBoss Developer community. In conjunction, Red Hat launched the next version of its award-winning integrated development environment, JBoss Developer Studio. As business is increasingly defined and differentiated by IT—and specifically the software and services it provides—developers are on the front lines of innovation in the enterprise. Together, the new subscription program, resources, and technology offerings reinforce Red Hat’s commitment to help developers work quickly and effectively.
No-Cost JBoss Developer Subscription
The new JBoss Developer program is a no-cost subscription designed to improve the accessibility of Red Hat’s enterprise-grade open source middleware technologies for developer use. The program gives developers more choice and flexibility in terms of the technologies they start with, and enables them to better plan and prepare for future deployment into production environments. Under the new program, Red Hat JBoss Middleware products are available for download by members of the JBoss Developer community to use in the construction of their own applications, without a paid subscription. Non-development use will require a paid subscription, which provides additional benefits such as full support, security, and updates.
Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 8
JBoss Developer Studio is an integrated development environment designed to support the full application development lifecycle. Version 8 introduces support for AngularJS and Ionic for building Apache Cordova (HTML5 hybrid) mobile applications. Based on the latest version of Eclipse, JBoss Developer Studio 8 also introduces Forge 2, which adds a new wizard-driven approach to code generation. A candidate release of JBoss Developer Studio 8 is available for download now. Red Hat expects the product to be generally available in fall 2014.
JBoss Developer Community Resources
In support of its developer initiative, Red Hat unveiled a major refresh of the JBoss Developer community site. The site, which currently has more than 289,000 users, is designed to be a one-stop shop for enterprise developers and provides a central location for information related to community projects, access to Red Hat’s enterprise middleware products under the new subscription, as well as support resources to help developers create and deploy applications using Red Hat JBoss Middleware.
Site highlights include quickstarts, tutorials, and reference architectures, as well as exclusive content and access to enterprise forums. Developers can expect to see additional content and resources added to the site over time, including new training courses, solutions, and demonstrations involving multiple technologies.
Mike Piech, general manager, Middleware, Red Hat, said, “Red Hat is fully committed to working in and through communities to create better technologies the open source way. We are reinforcing that commitment through the new JBoss Developer community site and no-cost product subscription. Community-powered innovation is central to the success of these technologies and Red Hat has built its middleware portfolio around the mantra that JBoss is, and will continue to be, by developers and for developers.”
