New workspaces model, full “dev-mode” for application runtimes — Eclipse Che the first kube-native IDE !
In the latests blog posts, we highlighted the main focus area of Eclipse Che 7, the new plugin model. This blog post explain the different changes that have been introduced to the Che workspaces, in order to prive full “dev-mode” capabilities on top of application runtimes by sidecaring developer tooling.
Kubernetes native IDE
This new version of Eclipse Che makes it the first Kubernetes native IDE.
Developers using Eclipse Che use containers directly in their developer workspaces. Che workspaces provide a “dev mode” layer on top of the containers used in production, adding intellisense and IDE toolings.
The work on Workspace.Next allows Che to use bare application definitions (a Docker image, a Composefile or a list of Kubernetes resources) without the need to patch them to inject the IDE services. With Workspace.Next, IDE toolings are microservices packaged in their own sidecar containers, bringing their own dependencies and keeping application’s containers untouched. The execution of IDE toolings is isolated from each other and from the application’s containers too. Each IDE tool now gets its own lifecycle, the ability for easy upgrading or switching, and coming soon its own scalability mechanism.
