Microsoft has released a Java debugger for its free open source editor, Visual Studio Code.

The newly minted extension is intended to work as a companion to the Language Support for Java extension provided by Red Hat.  Whereasnbsp;Red Hatrsquo;s Language Support for Java extension providesnbsp;IntelliSense capabilities and Java project support, it does not include debugging capabilities. Microsoftrsquo;s Java Debug Extension works with previous Red Hatrsquo;s extension to provide them.
Still in a preview mode, the Java Debug Extension offers capabilities including launch/attach, breakpoints, control flow, data inspection, and a debug console.

The Microsoft and Red Hat extensions are available separately or in the Java Extension Pack, which bundles both together in a single install. Microsoftrsquo;s plans call for enabling a modern workflow for Java, with more features and extensions planned going forward.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Ansible is the Rodney Dangerfield of Red Hatrsquo;s software portfolio: It, too, “donrsquo;t get no respect.” Despite the Ansible automated configuration management tool helping to sell Red Hatrsquo;s hybrid cloud story, delivering six deals worth more than $1 million and one deal worth over $5 million, not a single analyst in the latest financial call bothered to check on Ansiblersquo;s progress. Why? Theyrsquo;re fixated on OpenShift, and perhaps rightly so. OpenShift is Red Hatrsquo;s most obvious successor to the Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) throne.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The Eclipse Foundation is set to become the new steward of enterprise Java, taking over from Oracle, which no longer wants to manage Java EE.As part of the adoption, Java EE will likely get a new name, something Oracle recommended in its proposal to have a foundation adopt Java EE.[ Learn whatrsquo;s new in Java EE 8. |  Keep track of whatrsquo;s changed in Java SE 9 in InfoWorldrsquo;s live changelog, “Whatrsquo;s new in Java 9.” | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]A month ago, Oracle said it would end its stewardship role of Java EE and turn it over to an open source foundation.

Following consultations with Java partners such as IBM and Red Hat and after meeting with several foundations, Oracle has settled on an organization that has had a long history in Java development: the Eclipse Foundation. Eciipse created its popular Eclipse IDE and managed multiple other Java technologies.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Red Hatrsquo;s Project Atomic is an opinionated way to run Linux containers.

The Atomic Host operating system comes with Docker (containers), Flannel (networking), OSTree (host management), Etcd (distributed key-value store), and Kubernetes (orchestration) already installed. To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here(Insider Story)
Now that Oracle wants to turn over leadership of enterprise Javarsquo;s (Java EErsquo;s) development to a still-unnamed open source foundation, might the same thing happen with the standard edition of Java (Java SE) that Oracle also controls? Such a move could produce substantial benefits.

But it does not seem unlikely, at least at the moment.Oracle said it has no plans to make such a move.

But the potential fruits of a such a move are undeniable.[ Keep track of whatrsquo;s changed in Java 9 in InfoWorldrsquo;s live changelog, “Whatrsquo;s new in Java 9.” | Keep up with hot topics in programming with InfoWorldrsquo;s App Dev Report newsletter. ]If Oracle steps aside, therersquo;s more room for many others For one, a loosening of Oraclersquo;s control could entice other contributors to Java to participate more. Java development has had other participants, including IBM, Red Hat, and SAP.

But with the current Oracle-dominated setup, other companies and individuals could be reluctant to contribute a lot if they see it as benefiting a major software industry providermdash;and possible rivalmdash;like Oracle.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
Companies that need to deliver applications quickly and efficiently — and today, what company doesnrsquo;t need to do this?— are turning to Linux containers. What they are also finding is that once they get past the “letrsquo;s see how these container things workrdquo; stage, they are going to end up with a lot of containers running in a lot of different places.Linux container technology is not new, but it has increased in popularity due to factors including the innovative packaging format (now Open Container Initiative (OCI) format) originally invented by Docker, as well as the competitive requirement for continual development and deployment of new applications.
In a May 2016 Forrester study commissioned by Red Hat, 48 percent of respondents said they were already using containers in development, a figure projected to rise to 53 percent this year. Only one-fifth of respondents said that they wouldnrsquo;t leverage containers in development processes in 2017.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
