An Introduction to Eclipse Che: A Next Generation Java IDE


Eclipse Che is open source workspaces.

What happens when on-demand work spaces powered by Docker are transformed into a new kind of Java IDE accessed through your browser? This session introduces Eclipse Che and shows how a cloud IDE can make developing Java projects fast and powerful. Intellisense, content assist, machines powered by Docker, plug-in architecture, and performance compared to desktop IDEs will be reviewed and discussed. Che includes numerous forms of refactoring and uses Docker to initiate environments and machines to build and run code. The presentation also covers Maven, Ant, and Gradle extensions and discusses how Che can be extended with custom code templates, Dockerfiles, and plug-ins (authored in Java, of course!).

Yes - will ask the community of engineers who work on Che to submit a proposal on this concept. I think it would be better from them.
