The release of the latest JBoss Developer Studio (JBDS) brings with it the questions around how to get started with the various JBoss Integration and BPM product tool sets that are not installed out of the box.

In this series of articles we will outline for you how to install each set of tools and explain which products they are supporting.

This should help you in making an informed decision about what tooling you might want to install before embarking on your next JBoss integration project.

There are four different software packs that offer tooling for various JBoss integration products:

  1. JBoss Business Process and Rules Development
  2. JBoss SOA 5.x Development
  3. JBoss Fuse Development
  4. JBoss Integration and SOA Development
  5. JBoss Data Virtualization Development
  6. Currently available as early access.

This article will outline how to get started with the JBoss BPM and Rules Development tooling and JBDS 9.


JBDS 9 can be obtained through the Customer Portal or via the early access downloads on jboss.org. After installing JBDS, start it up and you will see a welcoming JBoss Central tab with at the bottom a tab to look at the available tool sets labeled Software/Update

Select JBoss BPM and Rules Development.

You will notice at the time of this writing that there are no other JBoss Integration stacks offered to install upon first inspection. This is due to the other integration stacks being early access.

Eventually they will be shown by default once testing finished and they release, but for now you can obtain them by checking the Early Access box in the bottom right corner. 

This will reveal the integration stack tooling offerings and we will select JBoss Business Process and Rules Development.

Examine components and versions to be installed.

Click on the Install/Update button to start the installation and restart at the end to complete the process.

If you are interested in what is being installed, it can be examined by examining the pop-up listing of components and versions. Note this will change as the early access progresses towards final releases.

Stay tuned for more articles in this series that will detail the installation of the remaining JBoss Integration Stack tools.
