JBoss Announce Early Access for Developer Studio

JBoss have announced early access for JBoss Developer Studio 5. This version of
Developer Studio is based on JBoss Tools 3.3, and focuses on
separating out the SOA tooling. Therefore, JBoss Developer Studio 5
will not include the Teiid data virtualisation system, jbpm,
drools, ESB and the Smooks framework by default. SOA Tooling will
be available from a separate update site, or via an additional
download, in the future. The Early
Access program
will commence in August 2010 and will be
completed by the GA date of JBoss Developer Studio.

also improvements for value property proposals, with more planned
for future releases.

Tooling for JavaFX projects. Find out more about e(fx)clipse, in
