On Monday, news broke from EclipseCon: Red Hat JBoss announces a partnership with Exadel. Eclipse based Exadel Studio is now open source and going into JBoss.org for continued development and merging with JBoss IDE, etc. This will be called Red Hat Developer Studio IDE platform.
Also, RichFaces is now open source, and will be called JBoss RichFaces. This along with open source Ajax4JSF will be integral as part of JBoss Seam and JBoss JEMS.
I see this as a consolidation move on Red Hat JBoss’ part to improve JSF feature set in Seam and an expansion move to have a significant IDE along with NetBeans and others out there. What do you think?
