News: Roaming Studio visual J2EE development environment released

  1. Roaming Media announces a public beta release of Roaming Studio 1.0. Roaming Studio is a comprehensive software development environment that fully supports pattern-driven design, assembly and deployment of J2EE applications. It simplifies and accelerates the delivery of these enterprise applications by providing visual representations of components and assemblies. It takes care of the dirty work by generating and maintaining source code while you concentrate on architectural and business level details.

    At the same time, Roaming Studio allows you to work at the source code level if you wish. Its unique IntelliSynch technology watches you as you work and provides real-time synchronization with the visual representations.

    Roaming Studio is also one of the first development tools to support the development and realization of software patterns. This powerful feature allows architects to create reusable designs that define objects and their interactions. These designs may then be used to automate the creation of J2EE components and application assemblies. The current support for patterns in Roaming Studio is the beginning of a revolutionary new way of creating applications via automated pattern-driven development and reusable components.

    Roaming Studio integrates with popular IDEs and supports any J2EE-compliant application server.

  2. Hi,

    This looks very, very similar to Inline Software's AssemblyLine product. I thought they got acquired by JFX Software.

    I was always thought AssemblyLine was a pretty cool product - and it made Visual Cafe almost usable for EJB development.

    Anyone know if the similarity is any more than a coincidence ?

    Cheers
    Carl
  3. Hi Carl

    InLine's AssemblyLine is actually an early ancestor of Roaming Studio. It has evolved quite a bit, though, and now includes things like:

     - Visual JSP, Servlet and JavaBean development
     - Enhanced EJBs that support relationships, events and constraints
     - Pattern-driven component design
     - Automated assembly (EJB JARS, WARS and EARS) creation and generation
     - Real-time code synchronization and validation

    We are also working on some exciting things for the final release next month.

    Regards,
    Bill
