1.6. Red Hat Development Suite with the Standard Package Management System

Red Hat Enterprise Linux uses RPM packages to install Red Hat Container Development Kit, Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, and Kompose.

Red Hat Development Suite includes the following packages:

  • rh-devsuite - includes Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio, Red Hat Container Development Kit, OpenJDK, and Kompose all integrated together
  • rh-eclipse47-devstudio - Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio 11.3.0
  • cdk-minishift - Red Hat Container Development Kit 3.4.0
  • docker-machine-kvm - Red Hat Container Development Kit minishift kvm driver

Chapter 2. System Requirements

The minimum system requirements for Red Hat Development Suite are:

  • 8 GB RAM
  • 20 GB disk space
  • CPU Intel i3 2GHz Processor

The recommended system requirements for Red Hat Development Suite are:

  • 16 GB RAM
  • 47 GB disk space
  • CPU Intel i5 2GHz or better

Chapter 3. Installing Red Hat Development Suite on macOS and Windows

3.1. Prerequisites

  • Sign Up for the Red Hat Developer Program: Join the program here: Red Hat Developer Program. After signing up, you must wait approximately fifteen minutes to allow the new account information to propagate to the Red Hat Subscription Management system.
  • Ensure Virtualization is enabled on your machine.

    If macOS: In a terminal, run the sysctl -a | grep machdep.cpu.features command. The result will be a string of features. If the output includes VMX, the machine has Virtualization enabled. If not enabled see your system’s documentation for instruction.

    If Windows: Ensure that Virtualization is enabled in your machine’s BIOS settings. If Red Hat Development Suite is run on a new system, ensure that Virtualization is enabled in the BIOS settings. This is required to run VirtualBox. See your system’s documentation for instructions to change BIOS settings.

  • Ensure that you are logged in as an Administrator.

    Note

    If Windows, do not run Red Hat Development Suite using a non-Administrator account with the Run as Administrator option because this does not supply the required permissions.

  • (Optional) Install Docker individually to use Docker for Windows: Red Hat Development Suite includes the Docker tooling, but to use the full version of Docker for Windows (Docker Machine or Boot2Docker), you must install Docker and test it before installing any Eclipse Docker tools. This is only applicable to using Docker outside of JBoss Developer Studio, such as Docker for Windows or Docker for macOS.
  • Ensure that Java SE 1.8.0 is installed:

    If macOS: Download and install Java SE 1.8.0 Build 111 from the Oracle website: Java Download.

3.2. Downloading and Setting up Red Hat Development Suite

Before you install Red Hat Development Suite, you have to prepare your environment.

  1. Log in and download Red Hat Development Suite from the Red Hat Developers Portal product download page.
  2. If macOS:

    • Double Click on DMG file.
    • Click and drag the Red Hat Development Suite app to the Applications folder. Or Double Click on the Red Hat Development Suite app.

    If Windows:

    • Run the downloaded installation file.
  3. On the Welcome window, click Next to continue.

    Note

    If a newer version of the installer is available you can download the latest version of the installer from the Welcome window

  4. On the Target Folder window, add a path to the target directory for the Red Hat Development Suite installation.

    If macOS: The default path for macOS is /Applications/DevelopmentSuite.

    If Windows: The default path for Windows is %PROGRAMFILES%\DevelopmentSuite.

3.10. Next Steps After Installation on Microsoft Windows and macOS

When the installation is complete, the Red Hat Development Suite window indicates that the download and install were successful.

The following links have more information on next steps:

3.10.1. Deleting Temporary Folders

During installation, Red Hat Development Suite stores files in a temporary folder. To free up space after installation, you must delete the temporary files. Refer to documentation based on your platform for more information on deleting temporary folders.

3.10.2. Changing Admin Console Passwords

After installation, you may change the admin console password for JBoss EAP and JBoss Fuse.

  • To reset the password for JBoss Fuse on Apache Karaf, update the following file with the new password: ${targetfolder}\fuseplatformkaraf\etc\users.properties
  • To reset the password for Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and for Red Hat JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP, run the script located in $JBoss_HOME/bin/add-user.sh (for Red Hat Enterprise Linux) or $JBoss_HOME\bin\add-user.sh (for Windows).

Chapter 4. Installing Red Hat Development Suite on Red Hat Enterprise Linux

4.1. Prequisites

Ensure that the following prerequisites are met when installing Red Hat Development Suite on Red Hat Enterprise Linux:

  • Sign Up for the Red Hat Developer Program: Join the program here: Red Hat Developer Program. After signing up, you must wait approximately fifteen minutes to allow the new account information to propagate to the Red Hat Subscription Management system.
  • Enable the rhel-7-server-devtools-rpms repository on Red Hat Enterprise Linux server or enable the rhel-7-workstation-devtools-rpms repository on Red Hat Enterprise Linux workstation
  • Enable the rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms repository

For more information on enabling the Red Hat Developer Tools Repository, go to Section 4.2, “Enabling the Red Hat Developer Tools repository”.

4.2. Enabling the Red Hat Developer Tools repository

To enable the Red Hat Developer Tools repositories:

  1. Run the following commands as the root user:

    # subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-devtools-rpms
    # subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms
    Note

    In the above command, depending on the variant of Red Hat Enterprise Linux that you are using, server or workstation, the commands will be:

    • For the workstation variant: subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-workstation-devtools-rpms
    • For the server variant: subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-7-server-devtools-rpms

    For developers, we recommend using Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for access to the widest range of development tools.

    For more information on registering and attaching subscriptions, see Using and Configuring Red Hat Subscription Management.

  2. To add the Red Hat Developer Tools key to your system, run the following commands as the root user:

    # cd /etc/pki/rpm-gpg
    # wget -O RPM-GPG-KEY-redhat-devel https://www.redhat.com/security/data/a5787476.txt

Chapter 5. Upgrading Red Hat Development Suite

There is no current path to upgrade from Red Hat Development Suite 2.2 to 2.3. To use version 2.3, uninstall Red Hat Development Suite 2.2 and then install Red Hat Development Suite 2.3.

Note the following considerations when uninstalling to upgrade to the newer version of Red Hat Development Suite:

  • Only VirtualBox version 5.1.22 is supported. If a VirtualBox version older than 5.1.22 is installed, manually uninstall this component before upgrading to new version.
  • Both the Online and Bundled Red Hat Development Suite installers require a manual uninstall and then a fresh installation with the new version of the installer.

6.2. Troubleshooting Miscelleaneous Errors

6.2.1. Terms and Conditions Error

Error: “Terms and Conditions for CDK have not been signed”

If your Windows user has a space in the username, the installer displays an error. This error appears on the Log In page when installing Red Hat Development Suite. The workaround for this issue is to log into Red Hat Developers Progrom and download Red Hat Container Development Kit. This triggers all the required Terms and Conditions approvals (if any are needed).

A user who wants to download and use Red Hat Container Development Kit must become a member of the Red Hat Developer Program. Sign up for the program here: Red Hat Developers Program.

The OpenShift Console web address does not work on Microsoft’s Edge Browser. This is a known issue, and the only workaround is to use a different browser to access the console.

6.2.3. Minishift conflicts

If the minishift upstream tool is added to the system path prior to installing Red Hat Container Development Kit, you may encounter the following errors:

  • Loss of ~/.minishift folder content
