CodeGear Unveils Enterprise-Class IDE - JBuilder 2007

Accelerates Collaborative Development For Java, Open Source And The Web

CodeGear announced JBuilder 2007, an enterprise-class integrated development environment (IDE) built on Eclipse to make collaborative development fast and reliable for Java, open source and the web. CodeGear JBuilder 2007 accelerates developer velocity with Visual EJB and web services GUIs, provides balance between the worlds of open source and commercial software with TeamInsight, an integrated collaboration portal, and increases developer confidence, through better control over open source plug-ins. Improving on its acclaimed Rapid Application Development (RAD) and team collaboration capabilities, JBuilder 2007 (formerly codenamed “Peloton”) has been completely redesigned to leverage the Eclipse platform and help organizations be more successful and productive with open source.

“JBuilder 2007 is about continuing the same rich and comprehensive development environment that Borland’s Developer Tools Group achieved with the JBuilder product line, but is now based on Eclipse,” says Bola Rotibi, principal analyst at Ovum. “As customers look to maximize the capabilities of Eclipse, they will need to look to those providers who can confidently provide strong and rich development and management support whilst embracing the open Eclipse community. CodeGear's JBuilder 2007 will be well placed in such a market.”

Two major trends are driving change in software development today: 1) open source is more pervasive than ever, and 2) development teams are increasingly distributed around the world. Providing “free” tools, components and unlimited flexibility, open source by its nature creates an uncontrolled development environment that can make it difficult to manage an already complicated process, ultimately increasing development costs, lowering productivity and reducing confidence in the software used and developed. At the same time, macroeconomic changes have encouraged the increasing distribution of software development, creating challenges and increasing the cost of managing teams in remote locations.

JBuilder 2007 addresses these challenges with enterprise-class collaboration features that restore confidence in the software development process while leveraging an ecosystem of commercial and open source plug-ins, 3rd party tools and frameworks. “For enterprise development, open source promises compelling cost benefits and flexibility, but realizing that potential without productivity loss, disorganization, and risk is difficult,” explained Michael Swindell, vice president of products and strategy for CodeGear. “JBuilder 2007 will prove that enterprise development and open source are complementary, and can create unmistakable value for the overall organization.”

Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, said, “JBuilder 2007 delivers enterprise-class capabilities that complement and extend the Eclipse platform, helping organizations and developers to better manage distributed teams and development. We are pleased that CodeGear has chosen Eclipse for building its next generation JBuilder IDE, which we expect to be a major new product in the Eclipse ecosystem.”

Completely rebuilt and re-architected to take advantage of Eclipse, CodeGear’s JBuilder 2007 combines the advantages of an open platform with JBuilder’s trademark functionality, ease-of-use and productivity, including collaborative capabilities that help developers and organizations more effectively manage complex projects across teams and locations.
