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 process 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, even 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 checkins, view quality metrics, even view live burn-down charts for project progress. Enhanced for 2007 is Optimizeit™ 2007 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 go. Enjoy the flexibility and cost-efficiencies of using an open platform, while providing enterprise-class functionality.

If you can't connect to this replay at all, you probably have port 1755 (Windows Media Server) blocked on your firewall, and you'll need to get that port opened. If you can't open the firewall port yourself, you'll have to request it from your IS department. We hope to "see" you on the webcast!
