Red Hat Provides Comprehensive Lifecycle Support for Java in the Cloud with OpenShift PaaS
OpenShift integrates Jenkins, JBoss Tools and Maven technologies,
allowing Java developers to code, build, deploy and scale on the cloud
RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced new capabilities for Java developers using
the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). With new technology
integrations, OpenShift now offers a comprehensive Java developer
experience from code to cloud that is fast, easy and free.
With OpenShift, Red Hat offers a compelling PaaS built on open source
technologies that enables developers to quickly develop and deploy
applications on the cloud. OpenShift provides built-in auto-scaling,
supports a wide variety of languages, frameworks, middleware and clouds
and is available free of charge. In August, Red Hat announced that it
was the first to deliver Java EE 6 on a PaaS with OpenShift, powered by
Red Hat's JBoss application platform technology. Today, OpenShift
expands upon its Java capabilities with the integration of several
technologies that allow OpenShift to offer a fuller Java lifecycle for
developers — developers can now code their application in an IDE, as
well as build, deploy and scale it with OpenShift.
New technology integrations for OpenShift announced today include:
Support for Jenkins, which is based on Hudson, extending
OpenShift to "Build-as-a-Service," allowing for faster builds in the
Integration between IDE and the cloud with the integration of
JBoss Tools and OpenShift, allowing developers to easily push their
code to the cloud from the leading Java IDE. Future integration is
also planned for JBoss Developer Studio.
Support for Maven, delivering application dependency resolution
as part of the build process.
"With Apache Maven we set out to build open technology that would make
the build process easier and allow developers to be able to quickly
comprehend the complete state of a development effort in the shortest
period of time," said Jason van Zyl, CTO and founder of Sonatype and the
founder of the Apache Maven Project. "Red Hat incorporating support for
the Maven build management system through OpenShift brings additional
ease and efficiency to developers that can now build and test in the
"Previously Java developers would have to download dependencies, compile
everything into a giant Java program file and upload that to the cloud.
This new functionality from OpenShift dramatically speeds up the
development lifecycle," said Charlotte Dunlap, Senior Analyst at Current
"With these latest updates to the OpenShift platform to extend its reach
into Java, developers can focus more on their application instead of on
the stack," said Mark Little, senior director, Middleware Engineering at
Red Hat. "Now, OpenShift takes code from your favorite IDE, resolves and
loads dependencies, compiles, deploys and scales your application, all
in the cloud. The new IDE combined with Maven dependency resolutions and
Jenkins build automation means you can write code and see it scaling in
the cloud within seconds. This is a big step forward for today's Java
