In the era of microservices and cloud-native applications, Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) is going through a major transformation. The combination of containers and continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) is enabling rapid deployment of software like never before. And though the languages, runtimes, frameworks, deployment targets have changed dramatically, the tooling hasn’t evolved much. Developers are still relying on traditional integrated development environments (IDEs) such as Visual Studio, Eclipse, and IntelliJ. While they may be powerful, they are definitely not designed to take advantage of emerging technologies.
Enter Eclipse Che, an integrated development environment that will get as portable as your code and applications. Imagine the power of carrying an IDE that’s bundled along with the code, required dependencies, and runtimes. That’s the premise on which Eclipse Che is built. It aligns with the emerging trends such as social coding and lightweight containers. Eclipse Che redefines how IDEs are designed and built.
Eclipse Che is a Java application that runs on Apache Tomcat server. The in-browser IDE is built using the Google Web Toolkit (GWT). Che’s power lies in its software development kit (SDK), which is highly extensible to develop new plug-ins. Adding a new language, framework, and runtime is as simple as creating a new plug-in.
To appreciate Eclipse Che, we need to understand its architecture and terminology.
