The Pathfinder Agile Ajax blog today, there’s yet more great content – this time, it’s a look at the Ajax Java support in various IDEs.
I’ve had it on my list of things to do for some time to round up all of the AJAX Java IDE’s. That’s what I’ve tried to do in this post. The category isn’t all that developed, as it turns out — though there are a few impressive tools like TibCo GI. Good tooling is often the last thing to come along for a new technology and AJAX is no exception.
The tools [below] fall into two categores: those that are plugins for the Eclipse IDE and those that are standalone tools. Most of these IDE’s tie you to a particular framework, which is kind of a taste of what life would be like if we had 10 different desktop operating systems for which to develop.
Among the items he lists, he includes:
For each of the items, he explains briefly his opinions on it concerning its support. Of the WYSIWYG items in his list, he mentions that only TibcoGI and Morfik are really worth checking out.
