First released as a Web IDE in eXo Platform 3.0 in September, the eXo Cloud IDE is a standalone offering that has been updated for cloud services. It is tightly integrated with the Elastic Beanstalk platform to provide an out-of-the-box container for applications that can be deployed within the IDE. This includes mobile and social applications for platforms like Facebook, which can leverage the elasticity of Elastic Beanstalk.
The eXo Cloud IDE provides a robust development environment with features such as a full color-coded, context sensitive and auto-complete multi-file editor, with preview panel and, in the future, integration with source control systems like Git. The eXo Cloud IDE is an open editor and will be available on other cloud platforms beyond Amazon and beyond Java.
Benjamin Mestrallet, CEO and founder of eXo, stated: "We intend to make the eXo Cloud IDE a useful onramp for developers to take advantage of this new wave of Platform as a Service offerings from companies like VMWare/SpringSource, CloudBees, Google App Engine, Salesforce/Heroku and Red Hat as they release open alternatives to Amazon’s Elastic Beanstalk. eXo Cloud IDE is independent of other eXo components, but will easily integrate with future cloud services that eXo will be bringing to market later this year."
