CodeGear - JBuilder 2007 announcement...

Posted by on in Blogs
CodeGear two weeks later and we're still focused on developers, still working for you.  Since that time we announced JBuilder 2007, our first JBuilder built on Eclipse.  JBuilder 2007 marks the third (major) generation of infrastructure improvements for JBuilder (version 1-3 built on the Delphi Windows IDE, version 3.5 to 2006 built on our own PrimeTime platform, 2007 build on Eclipse v3.2).  Features and benefits galore for our JBuilder customers, old and new.  You can read about the product in the press release, read the data sheet, scan the feature matrix, read the FAQ,  study the “JBuilder 2007, Open Source and Eclipse” introduction and overview whitepaper, and watch a short overview video (4 minutes 45 seconds). Stay tuned to BDN for upcoming webcasts and videos for JBuilder 2007.

Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation, gave us a great quote for our press release: "The Eclipse community welcomes JBuilder to the large family of commercial products built on the Eclipse platform. The JBuilder team has a well deserved reputation for shipping excellent products targeted at the needs of developers. I expect JBuilder 2007 to be a great commercial and community success."

We're developers, for developers, focused on development technologies, and the things that matter to you.  We'll continue to listen, develop, and deliver products that will help simplify complex development tasks.  I know there is a lot of mis-information and FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt) being spread around.  We are here to answer all the questions, quell the FUD, tell you our story, and to deliver great products.  I thank all of the loyal community members who continue to support us.  We will continue to do everything we can to deserve your support and trust.

    Here's hoping that JBuilder 2007 makes a lot of money for CodeGear.

    I have JBuilder 7 Pro. Can I get the upgrade price of $199 to JBuilder 2007 Developer?

    > I have JBuilder 7 Pro. Can I get the upgrade price of $199 to JBuilder 2007 Developer?

    All JBuilder versions qualify for the upgrade pricing for all editions. The FAQ will be updated shortly.

    Thanks for your support.

    There's no mention, anywhere, on the Borland site of operating systems other than Windows. This is bizarre, since Eclipse and SWT are cross-platform and presumably build on every major OS, so JBuilder 2007 should, also.

    I'm a fairly typical experienced Java developer: I've used a Windows machine for development twice in the last 10 years, and resented it both times. JBuilder was there to help me out the last time. But where are you now?

    If there's a roadmap for other platforms, it should be presented front and center on every FAQ and press release, because serious developers will be looking for that.

    This is really quite disappointing. For now, it looks like I continue using Eclipse + MyEclipse, rather than JBuilder, because it runs just fine on my Mac.

    Will get back to everyone on what platforms you can run JBuilder 2007 IDE. We've currently certified and delivered the install for Windows. Of course all of the things you build can run wherever Java runs.
