JBoss Developer Studio 5 - how to setup SOA Tools (BRMS example)

Download update site archive
in Red Hat Customer Portal
Even though you might think this is self evident, I am always looking around again for the exact way to get started with JBoss Developers Studio (JBDS) and the latest greatest Business Rules Management System (BRMS) tooling.

This version needs the BRMS tooling from the Customer Portal's update site zipped archive. There is no online update site for these plugins.

For posterity, here is how I do it:
  1. Get the latest JBDS 5 from your local Customer Portal (CP).
  2. You are missing the BRMS tooling, so add the JBoss SOA Tools update site by downloading the archived update site at the Customer Portal (CP). Add it via "Help -> Install New Software..." and point to the update site zip file.
  3. Select "BRMS Tooling"
After install you are ready to rock with all the new tooling supporting Rules, Events and Processes (jBPM).
