Borland Unveils Road Map For JBuilder

Borland Software says it plans to introduce two new products for its Java development environment by the first half of next year.

Borland Software Corp. on Tuesday unveiled a roadmap for its Java development environment, saying that it plans to introduce two new JBuilder products by the first half of next year.

The Scotts Valley, Calif., software tool maker said JBuilder's future included use of open-source Eclipse technology as the underlying framework for integrating the product with other vendors' tools. In addition, JBuilder will get additional developer collaboration and productivity capabilities.

"We are in a new era of development. An era in which developers must focus on enhancing both their individual art and their contribution within a larger team -- a team that often spans organizational roles, geographies and time zones," Boz Elloy, senior vice president of products at Borland, said in a statement.

JBuilder 2006, the next major upgrade of the product, is expected to ship later this year, with a new commercial JBuilder product, code-named Peloton, planned in the first half of next year, the company said. Peloton is expected to utilize Eclipse as its underlying integration framework.

Customers with JBuilder support and maintenance will get upgrades to both products for no additional charge.

Among the enhancements in JBuilder 2006 are new developer collaboration features, such as shared code editor views and joint debugging. Future versions of JBuilder are expected to provide more real-time visibility into the impact of code changes across application tiers, as well as projects.
