JBoss Forge 2.0.0.Beta4 is now available!

We are pleased to announce the release of JBoss Forge 2.0.0.Beta4, a Forge Runtime that features a streamlined programming model for Addon developers as well as a wide array of new Commands for developing Java EE applications.
In this version, we did a lot of refactoring, making it easier for new UI providers (other IDEs) to interact with our UI addon.

JDK 7 minimum runtime

From Beta4 and onward, Forge 2 and Furnace require JDK 7 as the minimum runtime requirement. Java 6 has been around for quite some time, and while we are sorry that some of you may be required to upgrade to Java 7 to use Forge, we are pleased to help move Java forward as a community, and continue to support the latest language version.

Scaffold is now available

Support for JavaServer Faces scaffolding is now complete. Stay tuned for an introductory video coming soon. This provides the same scaffold functionality that Forge 1 provided, but the commands have been refactored slightly to work better in the Forge 2 environment.

New and Re-named Commands

In order to achieve a consistent user experience, `new-project` has been renamed to `project-new`, and several Shell-only commands have been migrated (eg. mkdir, touch) – we will continue to bring more standard shell functionality to Forge 2, but if you would like something prioritized, please feel free to file an issue in the JBoss Forge JIRA or in the Forums
