Tech Chat – David Ward on JBoss Developer Studio

DZone recently interviewed JBoss Solutions Architect David Ward to talk about what’s new in JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) and the Enterprise Application Platform (EAP). Ward distinguishes EAP from the various projects found on and describes JBoss’ flexible deployment and configuration model. He looks at how JBDS tooling works together with Seam and Hibernate, describes the improvements in the jBPM Visual Designer and highlights new features in the JSF editor, including RichFaces components. He concludes by providing a roadmap for EAP and a vision for where he thinks developer tooling is headed in the next five years.
