Symantec Corp. this week announced the release of its VisualCafe 4 development environment for Java.
VisualCafe provides developers with an adaptable, integrated application environment, and combines a core Java development environment with many best-of-breed offerings from partners including BEA Systems, IONA, Oracle and PointBase.
VisualCafe 4 impliments the new Java 2 platform standards from Sun Microsystems, including multi-server Enterprise JavaBeans (EJB) support, Java ServerPages (JSP), servlets, CORBA, multi-tier distributed debugging and other Java technologies.
Symantec has tightly integrated the following vendors' solutions with VisualCafe Enterprise Edition:
- BEA Systems - Enterprise JavaBean integration with BEA WebLogic Application Server enables developers to more easily develop, debug, and deploy EJBs
- IONA - Developers can extend their VisualCafe-built applications across the enterprise, leveraging IONA's Orbix enterprise middleware product family.
- Oracle - Integration with Oracle 8i provides developers with the ability to develop applications using this industry leading database.
- PointBase - PointBase Mobile Edition provides a robust 100% Pure Java database that supports key industry standards, including Java, SQL-92 and SQL-99, JDBC and XML.
VisualCafe 4 Enterprise Edition (, available in the first quarter of 2000) was designed for developers that are involved with serious server-side, multi-tier Java development. VisualCafe Enterprise Edition supports Java ServerPages, and includes an integrated visual JSP editor that supports a drag-and-drop WYSYWIG environment and a JSP source editor with syntax highlighting, checking and suggestions for Java, HTML and XML.
VisualCafe Standard Edition and VisualCafe Expert Edition are available now for the retail price of $99.95 and $799.95, respectively.
