LinuxProgramming: WebSphere Studio Tools to Run on New "Eclipse" Open Source Software

Dec 07, 2001, 23:37 (7 Talkback[s])
"IBM today announced a new family of WebSphere application development tools that deliver the industry's broadest support for J2EE, Web services, XML, HTML, rich media, site design, voice, wireless and embedded devices.

IBM's new WebSphere Studio tools are the first commercially available tools built on open source software, code-named Eclipse, which is being donated by IBM to a new community of software tool vendors. Developers working on WebSphere Studio and other Eclipse-based tools use a common, easy-to-use interface that provides a consistent "look and feel," regardless of vendor, which cuts training costs for customers.

This unified interface and easy integration encourages team-oriented programming and developer collaboration among people with different skills,
such as programmers, Web content developers, business analysts, database administrators, wireless and voice application developers, and graphic artists. It also enables developers to customize their environment and mix-and-match tools of their choice."
