CodeGear's JGear Eclipse Plug-ins to Address Key Java Development Challenges

Announcement Made This Morning at "Real-World Java Seminar" in New York City

Making the announcement at this morning's 'Real-World Java Seminar' presented by SYS-CON Events in New York City, CodeGear from Borland Corporation unveiled a set of specialized plug-ins for the Eclipse open-source development platform: JGear.

The top pain points for Java developers using Eclipse stem from the difficulties of application performance tuning, Java code archeology, coding and configuring Java servers and frameworks, and team collaboration.

“Today developers and teams deal with these problems manually," said Michael Swindell, CodeGear Vice President of Products and Strategy. "JGear enables developers using Eclipse-based IDEs to address these daily challenges and develop high-performance Java and web applications more quickly, easily, and collaboratively."

“Our aim with JGear is to help developers and teams using Eclipse-based IDE solutions to increase both their developer and application performance as well as their overall project success rate,” Swindell added.

The capabilities in JGear were first introduced with CodeGear’s JBuilder® 2007, an IDE built on Eclipse that combines the advantages of an Eclipse open-source platform with JBuilder's award-winning visual development functionality, ease of use, application performance tuning, and team collaborative features.

“With JGear, we are extending these benefits to developers and organizations who are using an internally configured Eclipse platform or a commercial Eclipse-based IDE.  A fundamental principle of CodeGear’s Eclipse strategy is to help developers accelerate their productivity and success using Eclipse and open-source technologies,” said Swindell.
 
The new JGear product line includes – JGear Performance for Eclipse, JGear LiveSource for Eclipse, and JGear Team for Eclipse (both Client and Server editions).

JGear Performance for Eclipse contains a variety of performance and tuning features such as memory and CPU profiling and debugging; automatic detection of potential memory leaks; and real-time monitoring of programs’ use of virtual machine memory.

JGear LiveSource for Eclipse includes a graphical EJB workbench and Web services designer that eases RAD for both novice and experienced J2EE developers; Unified Modeling Language visualization of code artifacts and design for analyzing an application’s design and implementation; CodeGear’s LiveSource technology that simultaneously replicates changes to models in the code and vice versa to aid alignment between software architects and developers; and easy creation of Enterprise JavaBeans and model relationships.

JGear Team for Eclipse offers a complete agile team collaboration and development system based on open-source components. JGear Team is both a turnkey server solution and an Eclipse developer client solution.

JGear Team Server is a full team development server stack based on best of breed open-source components such as Subversion, Bugzilla, Continuum, and XPlanner. JGear Team Server includes ProjectAssist – the JGear Team administrator client for simple single-click server installation and configuration, team project creation, user administration and setup.

JGear Team Client is an Eclipse plug-in based on TeamInsight – an innovative collaboration foundation first introduced in JBuilder 2007 which provides individual developers a unified, real-time view of their project responsibilities and spot bugs, change requests, code notes, and tasks. JGear Team Client also includes team collaboration extensions to the Eclipse open-source Mylyn project (formerly called Mylar). Mylyn is the task-focused UI for Eclipse that reduces information overload and makes multi-tasking easier by making tasks a first class part of Eclipse, and integrating rich and offline editing for repositories such as Bugzilla, Trac, and JIRA. CodeGear actively supports Mylyn and has recently contributed new requirements for management capabilities to the Mylyn open-source project

"Fractured approaches to software development lead to disconnects in quality, inefficiency, and high costs,” said Melinda Ballou, Program Director of Application Life Cycle Management (ALM) service at IDC, a research and advisory services company headquartered in Framingham, Mass.  “Eclipse developers and others benefit from close coordination across testing, modeling, visual development, project management and a consistent and integrated user experience across change requests, bug-tracking, code editing, and other areas of code management.”

The JGear plug-ins will be available in September in English, German, French and Japanese.  All three plug-ins are available for Eclipse 3.2, and CodeGear intends to include support for the recently announced Eclipse version, Europa, later this year.
 
JGear Performance for Eclipse 3.2 costs $299, JGear LiveSource for Eclipse 3.2 is $299, JGear Team Client for Eclipse 3.2 is $399 and JGear Team Server for Eclipse 3.2 is $599.  All support Microsoft Windows®, Mac OS®X, and Red Hat® Linux® Enterprise 4 – except JGear Performance which supports Windows and Linux only, and JGear Team Server for Eclipse 3.2 which supports Windows only. 
 
JGear is also an ideal complement to CodeGear’s Turbo JBuilder 2007, which offers a free, turnkey, developer-focused and Eclipse-based Java IDE which can easily be upgraded with JBuilder's RAD productivity, code performance, and team development features.
 
JGear joins CodeGear’s full line of developer tools which, in addition to JBuilder, include Ruby on Rails; InterBase™; C++Builder™; and Delphi® for Win32, .NET and PHP solutions.  For more information on JGear or other CodeGear products: www.codegear.com
