  JBuilder 2007

JBuilder® 2007 brings accelerated development tools to Eclipse, with its renowned RAD and collaborative capabilities, making development fast and reliable for Java™, open source and the web.

Software development is no longer an isolated activity and Open Source has changed the way we approach development projects. Today, developers work in teams that need to collaborate across geographies and time zones. In addition, development has become highly iterative, requiring new coordinated tools and processes. Open source provides a myriad of new tools, components, and value, but it also creates a chaotic environment that makes it difficult to manage the development processes and to guarantee the quality of software being developed.

The latest JBuilder is the first application server independent enterprise class IDE built on open source Eclipse. It provides all the economic benefits of an open source platform, with the reliability of a trusted, turnkey solution provider. JBuilder 2007 is packed with new features that dramatically accelerate the complete development process; with a new visual EJB Workbench, enhanced distributed development and collaboration tools, and powerful code quality assurance features.

New in 2007, ProjectAssist dramatically reduces the time and complexity to create new team and project definitions. New TeamInsight enhances collaborative development with its centralized portal that allows team members to monitor project activity for the source code repository, track recent check-ins, view quality metrics, and view live burn-down charts for project progress. Enhanced for 2007 is Optimizeit™ for Eclipse delivers memory and CPU profiling and debugging to help ensure error free code. Combined with all the features you’ve come to expect from the leader in Java IDE development, JBuilder 2007 is the first choice for Java developers worldwide.

JBuilder 2007 advances developers forward to the new Eclipse based JBuilder platform with backward compatibility support for previous versions of JBuilder. Easily import existing projects right into the new JBuilder 2007 IDE and continue developing. With JBuilder 2007 you’ll enjoy the flexibility and cost-efficiencies of using an open platform, while providing enterprise-class functionality.

JBuilder 2007 helps you take control of your Java development with Velocity, Balance, & Confidence.

  • VELOCITY – JBuilder 2007 increases the development velocity of Java teams and individuals with P2P, Visual EJB and web services GUIs, Java5 Enterprise functionality, and UML 2 modeling with LiveSource two-way code and diagram editing. JBuilder 2007 delivers an innovative and highly productive visual “drag and drop” environment with enterprise-class project management capabilities designed to increase speed and productivity. In-IDE integration enables live and off-line editing of all project artifacts including defects, source, project tasks and requirements. All projects are automatically synchronized when on-line.
  • BALANCE – JBuilder 2007 helps organizations manage and balance complex development projects across teams and locations, and across open source and proprietary software. JBuilder’s TeamInsight is an innovative collaboration foundation that lets organizations leverage best of breed solutions for source code management, requirements, bug tracking, testing, and project management. Individual developers have a unified real-time view of their project responsibilities for bugs, change requests, code notes, tasks and requirements, and the entire team has a shared project web portal with live data and statistics on team vector and velocity. To manage the application lifecycle, JBuilder’s TeamInsight provides integration with Bugzilla, Subversion, and XPlanner. JBuilder 2007 also supports Eclipse-based plug-in integration for additional application lifecycle products including Borland’s Together® and StarTeam®, IBM’s ClearCase, and Microsoft’s Visual Source Safe.
  • CONFIDENCE – A trusted commercial solution, JBuilder 2007 establishes confidence in the software development process. JBuilder 2007 embraces and integrates the most popular open source plug-ins, tools and frameworks, all within a certified and managed turnkey development solution that organizations of any size can rely on.
