Chapter 7. Install Red Hat JBoss Development Tools

To install JBoss development tools, you can use a standalone installer or you can sequentially install the development environment and then the plug-ins.

7.1. Install JBDS and Developer Studio Integration Stack with a Standalone Installer

Overview

A standalone installer is the easiest way to install the JBoss Fuse tooling.

Standalone installer versions

The following versions of the Developer Studio Integration Stack standalone installer are available for JBoss Fuse 6.3:
Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.1.0 Fuse Tooling and Runtime Installer
Installs Developer Studio 10.2.0 (Eclipse Neon-based IDE), Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.1.0 Fuse Tooling, and Fuse 6.3 runtime.
Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.1.0 Fuse Tooling Installer
Installs Developer Studio 10.2.0 (Eclipse Neon-based IDE) and Developer Studio Integration Stack 10.1.0 Fuse Tooling.
Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio Integration Stack 9.0.3 Fuse Tooling Installer
Installs Developer Studio 9.1.0 (Eclipse Mars-based IDE) and Developer Studio Integration Stack 9.0.3.

Using a standalone installer

To install the tooling for JBoss Fuse by using a standalone installer, perform the following steps:
  1. Go to the folder where you downloaded the installer and run it. For example:
    java -jar devstudio-integration-stack-10.1.0.GA-fuse-installer-runtime.jar
  2. The installation wizard starts. You must accept the end user license agreement to install Fuse tooling. Otherwise, you can click Next in each dialog to accept the default.
    1. Accept the end user license agreement.
    2. Accept or specify the installation location.
    3. Accept or select a Java 8 JVM.
    4. Optionally, select platforms or servers to configure as part of this installation. If you are not installing the Fuse 6.3 runtime as part of this installation, you might want to configure the Fuse runtime server by clicking Add and browsing to the location where you installed the JBoss Fuse runtime (JBoss Fuse on Karaf runtime, or JBoss Fuse on JBoss EAP runtime). If you are not installing the runtime as part of this installation and you do not configure a runtime in this step then you can configure a runtime when Developer Studio starts.
    5. Accept JBoss Fuse Development as a feature to install.
    6. If you are installing the Fuse 6.3 runtime as part of this installation, then the Select Additional Runtimes to Install dialog appears. JBoss Fuse Karaf Server is selected.
    7. Click Next in the Summary Information dialog to install development tools.
  3. When installation is complete, the default behavior, which you can accept or change, is that Developer Studio starts. If the Searching for runtimes dialog appears, click OK to create a reference to the JBoss Fuse runtime.
  4. Accept any additional dependencies and license agreements.

7.2. Install JBDS and JBDSIS Sequentially

You also have the option of installing JBDS and JBDSIS sequentially: first installing the JBDS development environment; and then installing the JBDSIS plug-ins for JBoss Fuse.
