How To Setup Fuse Tooling For JBoss Developer Studio 11

The release of the latest JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) brings with it the questions around how to get started with the various JBoss Integration and BPM product tool sets that are not installed out of the box.

In this series of articles we will outline for you how to install each set of tools and explain which products they are supporting.

This should help you in making an informed decision about what tooling you might want to install before embarking on your next JBoss integration project.

There are three different software packs that offer tooling for various JBoss integration products:
  1. JBoss Fuse Development
  2. JBoss Business Process and Rules Development
  3. JBoss Integration and SOA Development
This article will outline how to get started with the JBoss Fuse Development tooling and any of the JBDS 11 series of releases.


Installation

Click on 'Fuse Integration Project' to get
started with the Fuse development tooling.
JBDS 11 can be obtained through the Customer Portal or via the early access downloads on developers.redhat.com. After installing JBDS, start it up and you will see a welcoming Red Hat Central tab with at the bottom a tab to look at the available tool sets labeled Software/Update.
