METAspectrum evaluation of Java IDEs

By: Anders Ohlsson

Abstract: JBuilder is the leader


  • The key strength of each leader is possession of a solid customer base. This is especially true of Borland, which currently enjoys dominant market share and has strengthened its base through acquisition (e.g., TogetherSoft, which also brings the WebGain base).

  • Borland's strength in rapid application development and Java, together with its growth to cover the application life cycle, will enable it to compete effectively - especially given the loyalty of developers to specific tools.
