    Still like to see what is Borland's plan for Together as design/modeling tool.

    Nixon,

    We will be releasing Enterprise Studio 7 for Java very shortly. Please contact a Borland Sales Representative in an office/region close to you for more technical details, release dates etc,.

    The Enterprise Studio essentially combines JBuilderX and Together into a single unified and integrated design & development environment.

    They've priced themselves out of my range.. I guess ill be loading up Eclipse and trying to get used to its odd project structuring. I really dig JBuilder but this price is just plain crazy; especially since they appear to have a 6 month release cycle. Release a version the has basic class, jsp, and servlet support for > $200 and im down!
  7. IntelliJ[ Go to top ]

    IntelliJ is more reasonably priced @ $500
  8. RE: IntelliJ[ Go to top ]

    Yes but I would say that Oracle JDeveloper ($995) is a better fit for the JBuilder crowd since they are usually looking for wizards, and graphical tools and not just an advanced code editor. I'm not sure that I would put IntelliJ and Eclipse in the same IDE space as JBuilder, JDeveloper and WSAD.

    I think Borland alientated a lot of developers with it's release and pricing tactics. They did so with me for certain. Total cost of ownership for JBuilder is astronomical.

    Never again. I'll use Eclipse.
