eXo Launches Cloud IDE for Amazon Elastic Beanstalk
eXo provides Java developers working with Amazon Web Services Elastic Beanstalk with a new Integrated Development Environment (IDE).To help with the tooling process, eXo, a maker of Java user experience and portal technologies, has announced the eXo Cloud IDE for Elastic Beanstalk, the new platform as a service from Amazon Web Services. The recently announced AWS Elastic Beanstalk enables Java developers to easily deploy and operate their applications on a scalable platform. The eXo Cloud IDE is an open cloud service that extends the Elastic Beanstalk runtime benefits into the development phase, making it simple for developers to access, view, edit and commit their code from any browser and deploy their applications with a single click. A beta version of the eXo Cloud IDE is available Jan. 26 as a free machine image (AMI) that can be added to an Elastic Beanstalk instance.
In a statement, Benjamin Mestrallet, CEO and founder of eXo, said: "We intend to make the eXo Cloud IDE a useful onramp for developers to take advantage of this new wave of platform-as-a-service offerings from companies like VMWare/SpringSource, CloudBees, Google App Engine, Salesforce/Heroku and Red Hat as they release open alternatives to Amazon's Elastic Beanstalk. eXo Cloud IDE is independent of other eXo components, but will easily integrate with future cloud services that eXo will be bringing to market later this year."
