“We have found that many of our customers are developing sophisticated applications that span the WSO2 Carbon product family, and they are taking advantage of the unique strengths of our platform when used as a whole,” said Dr. Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and CEO of WSO2. “We’re now revving up our tooling support with WSO2 Carbon Studio—helping developers to organize, develop, test, and deploy these composite applications with greater ease than ever before. This illustrates WSO2’s commitment to continuously searching and destroying the hassles developers and IT staff may encounter, and helping businesses fully realize the contributions of SOA to the bottom line.”Develop in WSO2 Carbon Studio
The WSO2 Carbon Studio IDE is designed specifically to take advantage of the open source WSO2 Carbon middleware platform. The WSO2 Carbon family of products shares a unified management console and provides a consistent set of enterprise-class management,security, clustering, logging, statistics, tracing, and other capabilities. As a result,developers avoid the integration complexity and redundancy of traditional middleware platforms. Using WSO2 Carbon Studio,developers can easily create applications that work with any of the ten componentized WSO2 Carbon-based middleware products—and more easily develop applications that leverage multiple products.
The Eclipse-based WSO2 Carbon Studio facilitates the development and configuration of code for SOA and composite applications based on WSO2 Carbon. It includes graphical editors for XML configuration files, an enhanced Eclipse BPEL editor, and easy integration of WSO2 Carbon-based applications with the WSO2 Governance Registry. Additionally, WSO2 Carbon Studio offers a rich set of third-party Eclipse plug-ins, including Maven and the OpenSocial Gadget Editor.Deploy and Test with WSO2 Carbon Studio
Central to Carbon Studio is functionality to support the many enterprise SOA projects that often combine multiple application types into a single composite application or service. With WSO2 Carbon Studio, developers can create a Carbon Application project that includes services running on multiple WSO2 Carbon servers, for example the WSO2 ESB, WSO2 Data Services Server, and WSO2 Gadget Server.
With Carbon Studio, developers also have single-click simplicity for testing Java-based applications and services—without leaving the IDE. Debugging tools support Axis2-based services, Apache Synapse mediators, registry handlers, and data validators.
With a tested CApp in hand, developers can then deploy their code in production using a WSO2 Carbon Archive (CAR). Each server to which the CAR is deployed will extract the relevant part of the application, allowing the application topology to become a reliable part of the CApp definition, instead of implied through a complex multi-server deployment process.WSO2 Carbon Studio Tools
