This session will mainly focus on what is Eclipse Che, how it works and it’s demo installation on openshift.

Eclipse Che is great. It is an IDE running as pods be it minishift or OpenShift. This IDE can be used to deploy applications. A wide range of application plugins are available for a developer to choose from.

Eclipse Che provides:

  • Workspaces that include runtimes and IDEs
  • RESTful workspace server
  • A browser-based IDE
  • Plugins for languages, framework, and tools
  • An SDK for creating plugins and assemblies

Developing applications on a IDE running as pods can be implemented for faster deployments.

  • What is Eclipse Che?
  • How it is deployed on Openshift?
  • How an IDE runs as pods?
  • The installation process of Eclipse Che on Openshift.
  • What all gets deployed?
  • How Postgresql, Keycloak and Che pods are deployed will also be explained briefly.
  • The various default plugins to choose from for developing applications.


  • Basic knowledge on OpenShift/Minishift(or kubernetes) and Eclipse IDE is required.
