CloudBees, Inc., the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader, today announced the general availability of the CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit 2.0. The new version is a major upgrade of the CloudBees plugin that helps developers create and develop software faster by bringing the full power of the CloudBees PaaS to Eclipse.

The CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit now provides direct access to the CloudBees ClickStart application templates, accessed directly from within the Eclipse environment. ClickStarts sets up the entire development-to-deployment environment for an application in one click. Now with the CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit, developers can quickly and easily try out a growing list of technology stacks on the CloudBees Platform – everything from Java EE 6 & 7 to GlassFish 3 and 4, to Scala and the Play Framework, as well as a host of other web technologies – eliminating unnecessary work and streamlining the development process.

The previous version of the CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit enabled deployed applications and Jenkins jobs to be viewed from within Eclipse. The updated CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit also automatically sets-up source repositories, databases and continuous integration environments in the cloud and provides the ability to deploy applications to the cloud – all from within Eclipse and in one click. CloudBees also provides support for existing project types such as Dynamic Web, Maven and Ant, enabling developers to deploy these projects from Eclipse to the CloudBees Platform.

“Developers face enough challenges trying to develop code and manage the multiple steps in the build-test-deploy process,” stated Harpreet Singh, senior director of product management, CloudBees. “Using the new, enhanced version of the CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit, developers can easily access cloud resources to manage their projects end to end, without ever leaving the Eclipse environment. This helps developers accomplish their most important goal: writing high-quality code and getting it to market fast.”

The CloudBees Eclipse Toolkit provides the following new functionality:

Access to ClickStarts – The language-specific ClickStart will automatically import and set up source code, set up and connect to the database and display the Jenkins job created for the project

Database perspectives – The database set up by a ClickStart, along with other databases running on the CloudBees Platform, is displayed within the Eclipse environment

CloudBees SDK – Provides a console type to run the CloudBees SDK for access to CloudBees command line tools

Deploy existing project types to the cloud – Deploy Dynamic Web, Maven and Ant projects on the CloudBees Platform
