JBoss Tools is a set of plugins for Eclipse that complements, enhances and goes beyond the support that exists for JBoss and related technologies in the default Eclipse distribution.

JBoss Developer Studio is a fully bundled Eclipse distribution which not only includes the majority of JBoss Tools but also all its needed dependencies and 3rd party plugins allowing for an easy one-click and no-fuss installation.

If you are into doing your own bleeding edge eclipse plugin assembly, JBoss Tools is for you; if you are more into having something that "Just Works" then JBoss Developer Studio is the way to go.

h2. Installation

+JBoss Developer Studio+ comes with everything pre-bundled in its installer. Simply  http://devstudio.jboss.com/earlyaccess download it from our early access site and run it like this:

java -jar jbdevstudio-<installername>.jar

*Note:* if you are on Windows or Mac OSX 64-bit we recommend you ensure to select the 32-bit option in the multi-platform installer to get Visual Page editor working and use much less memory.

+JBoss Tools+ requires a bit more:

 http://marketplace.eclipse.org/marketplace-client-intro?mpc_install=420896  https://devstudio.jboss.com/images/jbosstools-marketplace-download-now.png 
This release requires at least Eclipse 4.2 but we recommend using the  http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/packages/release/juno/sr1 Eclipse 4.2 JEE Bundle since then you get most of the dependencies preinstalled.

Once you have installed Eclipse, you either find us on https://marketplace.eclipse.org/node/420896 Eclipse Marketplace under "JBoss Tools (Juno)" or use our update site directly.

The update site URL to use from Help > Install New Software... is:
 http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/stable/juno/ http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/development/juno/

Note: SOA tooling for BPEL, Drools, Guvnor, jBPM, ESB, Modeshape, pi4soa, Savara, SwitchYard & Teiid are no longer included in the JBoss Tools release. They will become available separately later.

h2. Bring Your Own Eclipse
This beta introduces JBoss Developer Studio BYOE (Bring Your Own Eclipse) which allow you to install the plugins provided and supported in JBoss Developer Studio to your own existing Eclipse installation from  https://marketplace.eclipse.org/node/503834 Eclipse Marketplace.

If unavailable soon from "Help > Eclipse Marketplace...", simply click the link above to browse the Marketplace entry, then drag the link there into your Eclipse.

We are eager to hear how this BYOE option work for you and do please let us know ASAP if you spot issues with this new and more flexible way of installing Developer Studio! Thank you!

h2. Multiple OpenShift Servers

OpenShift now allows you to connect to multiple OpenShift servers, i.e. your own Origin server as well as hosted openshift. 

h2. And more...

See the full list of changes in Alpha1, Alpha2 and now Beta1 at the  http://docs.jboss.org/tools/whatsnew/ What's New and Noteworthy and of course a good bunch of bug fixes and adjustments for running well in Eclipse 4.2/Juno. 

 Have fun!
