Red Hat, Inc. today announced new capabilities for Java developers using the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service. OpenShift allows Red Hat to offer PaaS, built on open source technologies that enable developers to quickly develop and deploy applications on the cloud.
“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 of 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.”
OpenShift provides built-in auto-scaling, supports a wide variety of languages, frameworks, middleware and clouds and is available free of charge. 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 cloud.
- 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.
