CloudBees Launch Toolkit for Eclipse Developers

CloudBees have announced the GA of their Toolkit for Eclipse, providing Java developers with an Eclipse-to-the-cloud path. The Eclipse toolkit works by connecting [email protected] directly to Eclipse, allowing developers to create and monitor Jenkins jobs running on CloudBees inside Eclipse. The toolkit provides feedback on code changes, automated deployment of applications in the cloud, and allows users to build and test environments that scale up and down as required. Developers can choose whether to run in a local environment, or deploy to the CloudBees [email protected] PaaS. Visit the Toolkit for Eclipse page now to learn more.
