Developer workspaces

Eclipse Che provides developer workspaces with everything you need to code, build, test, run, and debug applications:

  • Project source code

  • Web-based integrated development environment (IDE)

  • Tool dependencies needed by developers to work on a project

  • Application runtime: a replica of the environment where the application runs in production

Pods manage each component of a Che workspace. Therefore, everything running in a Che workspace is running inside containers. This makes a Che workspace highly portable.

The embedded browser-based IDE is the point of access for everything running in a Che workspace. This makes a Che workspace easy to share.
