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.
