Eclipse Oxygen has now been released, but there was a small delay releasing the JBoss Tools Plug-in for Eclipse Oxygen. We are excited to announce the release of JBDS 7.4.1, which is an update to JBDS 7.4 and includes support for Eclipse Oxygen SR1.
The JBoss Plugin for Eclipse is being renamed as “Jboss Developer Studio”. It is now longer just a JBoss plugin but a complete IDE including support for Eclipse plugins and builds, an embedded JavaDB inside the IDE and much more.
You’ll need Eclipse for this plugin to work. However, if you’re going to be using JBoss as your Java EE application server, you’ll need this plugin. This open-source plugin gives you everything you need to develop an enterprise Java application in the Eclipse IDE.
