Red Hat integrates Exadel and JBoss

And gets itself a new Studio


Red Hat has got out its soldering iron and brought together the tools that were contributed to it by Exadel back in March with the JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to create a newly branded, Eclipse-based integrated development environment called Red Hat Developer Studio.

The Exadel tools: Studio Pro, RichFaces, and Ajax4jsf, have been combined with the the JBoss tools Seam, Hibernate, and the Application Server runtime. The target is to provide a development environment for enterprise Java, Ajax, and SOA applications.

The new suite provides a seamless, unified programming model based on JBoss Seam to build applications in a single, consistent manner, eliminating the need for different programming models. Seam is currently being standardised as Web Beans in the Java Community Process. Ajax development capabilities come from a combination of Seam and Ajax4jsf frameworks, RichFaces Web components, and WYSIWYG tools.

It is specifically targeted at developers building Java EE applications, with capabilities like two-way visual and source editing of JavaServer Faces (JSF) and Facelets pages. The addition of the JBoss Application Server in Developer Studio also makes the deployment, running, and debugging of Java EE applications a more straightforward task.

Red Hat claims that Developer Studio is the first open source, Eclipse-based development environment to combine the runtime environment with the tools, removing the need to weld together different open source frameworks and components before development work can start.

The new suite is currently available in beta and the final code is scheduled to be available in late summer under the GNU Public Licence v.2 from Red Hat Subscriptions. ®

  • Pentester pops open Tesla Model 3 using low-cost Bluetooth module
    Anything that uses proximity-based BLE is vulnerable, claim researchers

    Tesla Model 3 and Y owners, beware: the passive entry feature on your vehicle could potentially be hoodwinked by a relay attack, leading to the theft of the flash motor.

    Discovered and demonstrated by researchers at NCC Group, the technique involves relaying the Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) signals from a smartphone that has been paired with a Tesla back to the vehicle. Far from simply unlocking the door, this hack lets a miscreant start the car and drive away, too.

    Essentially, what happens is this: the paired smartphone should be physically close by the Tesla to unlock it. NCC's technique involves one gadget near the paired phone, and another gadget near the car. The phone-side gadget relays signals from the phone to the car-side gadget, which forwards them to the vehicle to unlock and start it. This shouldn't normally happen because the phone and car are so far apart. The car has a defense mechanism – based on measuring transmission latency to detect that a paired device is too far away – that ideally prevents relayed signals from working, though this can be defeated by simply cutting the latency of the relay process.

  • Google assuring open-source code to secure software supply chains
    Java and Python packages are the first on the list

    Google has a plan — and a new product plus a partnership with developer-focused security shop Snyk — that attempts to make it easier for enterprises to secure their open source software dependencies.

    The new service, announced today at the Google Cloud Security Summit, is called Assured Open Source Software. We're told it will initially focus on some Java and Python packages that Google's own developers prioritize in their workflows. 

    These two programming languages have "particularly high-risk profiles," Google Cloud Cloud VP and GM Sunil Potti said in response to The Register's questions. "Remember Log4j?" Yes, quite vividly.

  • Rocket Lab is taking NASA's CAPSTONE to the Moon
    Mission to lunar orbit is further than any Photon satellite bus has gone before

    Rocket Lab has taken delivery of NASA's CAPSTONE spacecraft at its New Zealand launch pad ahead of a mission to the Moon.

    It's been quite a journey for CAPSTONE [Cislunar Autonomous Positioning System Technology Operations and Navigation Experiment], which was originally supposed to launch from Rocket Lab's US launchpad at Wallops Island in Virginia.

    The pad, Launch Complex 2, has been completed for a while now. However, delays in certifying Rocket Lab's Autonomous Flight Termination System (AFTS) pushed the move to Launch Complex 1 in Mahia, New Zealand.
