Pre-installed Drools development environment for VirtualBox

For the Drools Boot Camp SF09 I made up pre-installed Drools development environments for Sun's VirtualBox. This environment has everything you need to start development of drools.



What's in the box?

  • Fedora 10
  • Java 1.6 JDK
  • Maven 2.0.9
  • Ant 1.7.1
  • gwt-linux-1.5.2
  • JProfiler 5.2 (With Drools community license, only to be used with Drools)
  • Eclipse 3.4 (with GEF, Subclipse, Drools and JProfiler plugins pre-installed, and Drools runtime configured)
  • All environment variables correctly set
  • Full Drools SVN checkout
  • Maven repository populated with all Drools dependencies
  • Initial Eclipse workspace created, with basic modules already checked in
  • Documentation already built and set as FireFox home page
  • Full build already done, including the eclipse plugin which downloads eclipse to build itself, and JBoss AS for the guvnor-standalone.zip which is in drools-guvnor.
The VirtualBox 2.2 image is exported and zipped and available here:

If anyone wants to improve on this image - preinstalled Netbeans, IntelliJ (with community license) or any other ideas, please feel free and let me know where I can download it from so I can make it available to others.
