The Eclipse Cloud Developer Tools contributor award for this month goes to Marc Nuri at Red Hat for his continuing leadership of JKube, and more specifically for the new JKube Remote Development feature. Congratulations Marc and thank you for your contributions!
Eclipse JKube provides Maven and Gradle plugins that allow Java developers to easily deploy their applications to Kubernetes and OpenShift using the tools they're already familiar with. JKube supports multiple Java application servers and includes advanced configuration options and support for yaml fragments to handle more complex scenarios.
Marc has always been a great advocate for JKube and the work his team has been doing, but recently took it a step further to advocate for and lead delivery of the new Remote Development feature. This feature takes JKube a step further and allows developers to continue debugging on their own machine even while running in the context of a larger application on Kubernetes. Read more about it in this blog.
JKube is part of the Eclipse Cloud DevTool Working Group.
