The availability of a topology view, a command line interface for OpenShift deployment, connectors to a multitude of IDEs, and a deployment extension for Microsoft Azure enhance the freedom, control, and operational agility of developers that are developing Kubernetes-based applications. Moreover, Red Hat OpenShift 4.2 delivers a portfolio of developer tools for Kubernetes-based development that provides an abstraction layer with respect to Kubernetes-based development. Taken together with Red Hat's announcement of service mesh, serverless, and CI/CD functionality, Red Hat OpenShift 4.2 represents a breakthrough in the space of cloud-native development tools, given its ability to support DevOps, serverless, observability, and monitoring as well as functionality for the development of net-new Kubernetes-based applications. Considered in conjunction with Red Hat's portfolio of development tools for application migration and modernization, Red Hat OpenShift 4.2 also supports the refactoring of legacy applications by facilitating the development of microservices that reduce the dependency of a legacy application on a monolithic code base.
