Revision HistoryLegal Notice Preface This document describes the different features and utilities that make Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 an ideal enterprise platform for application development. Developer Guide I. Setting Up a Development Workstation Where did the comment section go?Red Hat's documentation publication system recently went through an upgrade to enable speedier, more mobile-friendly content. We decided to re-evaluate our commenting platform to ensure that it meets your expectations and serves as an optimal feedback mechanism. During this redesign, we invite your input on providing feedback on Red Hat documentation via the discussion platform.
