Abstract

This document details steps to install Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack.

Chapter 1. Installation Options

Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack is provided as a set of plug-ins for Eclipse or JBoss Developer Studio. Depending on whether you are already using Eclipse or JBoss Developer Studio, there are a variety of ways of installing JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack and instructions are given here for each variation:

Note

To install Eclipse, see https://eclipse.org/users/ on the Eclipse website. To install JBoss Developer Studio BYOE or standalone, see the Install Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio document for the relevant version on the Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio documentation page.

Important

A variety of Eclipse installations are available, each with a different default configuration and selection of preinstalled plug-ins. Red Hat recommends using the Eclipse Neon for Java EE Developers when using JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack.

Chapter 2. System Requirements

This release of JBoss Developer Studio is supported for use with a range of operating system, architecture, and Java developer kit combinations; for a complete list, see Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Supported Configurations and Components on the Red Hat Customer Portal.

The requirements to install and run this release of JBoss Developer Studio are:

  • Recommended requirements:

    • 4 GB RAM
    • 2 GB of hard disk space
  • Minimum requirements:

    • 2 GB RAM
    • 1 GB of hard disk space.

Chapter 3. Updating JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack

Each major version of JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack is based on a different version of Eclipse. As a result, it is not possible to update an older major version of JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack to a newer major version. For example, it is not possible to update an existing JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 9.x or earlier installation to JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.x. because JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 9.x is based on Eclipse Mars (4.5) but JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.x is based on Eclipse Neon (4.6).

No updates are available for the first major version of JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack, such as version 10.0. For subsequent 10.x versions, configure your IDE settings for automatic updates the IDE automatically notifies users when an update for the next minor version is available, depending on your IDE settings for automatic updates. To check for updates, click HelpCheck for Updates.

Chapter 4. Installing JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack Using the Standalone Installer

Use the standalone installer to install JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack with all the latest versions of the integration stack components:

  • JBoss Developer Studio
  • JBoss Fuse & JBoss Fuse Service Works
  • JBoss Business Rules Management System (BRMS)
  • JBoss Business Process Management Suite (BPM Suite)
  • JBoss Data Virtualization
Important

The embeddable version of Xulrunner works with GTK2, but not with GTK3. As a result, the SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) Browser, which is used for documentation in JBoss Fuse tooling and Javadocs in the Java Editor, does not work.

The workaround for this issue is to install WebKitGTK when using GTK3. An additional workaround is to enable GTK2 and use it instead of GTK3. Note that the browser widget does not work with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 or supported Fedora version because they do not have WebKitGTK installed by default.

Further information on what SWT Browser does in Eclipse is available here: https://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#browserlinux
