Abstract: JBuilder 2007 was highlighted in InfoWorld’s Technology of the Year awards press release.

SCOTTS VALLEY, Calif.–January 8, 2008–Calling it "a very smooth, very robust IDE with many innovative features," InfoWorld today named CodeGear JBuilder 2007 "Best Java Integrated Development Environment" in its 2007 Technology of the Year awards.

JBuilder 2007 is an IDE built on the open source Eclipse framework, which makes development of Java and Web-based collaborative applications faster and more reliable. JBuilder 2007 combines the advantages of the Eclipse framework with JBuilder's innovative rapid application development (RAD) functionality, ease-of-use and productivity, and collaborative capabilities that help developers and organizations more effectively manage complex projects across locations and teams.

The InfoWorld awards recognize significant technologies of the past year that promise to make the greatest impact on enterprise IT strategies as well as the products that best exemplify the implementation of those technologies. The InfoWorld Technology of the Year awards are not open to outside nominations; only products reviewed by InfoWorld’s Test Center during the previous year are eligible. The final selections are made by InfoWorld’s Test Center analysts and editors.

"I found a very smooth, very robust IDE with many innovative features. It’s safe to say that CodeGear decided to throw everything it had at this release — and succeeded brilliantly," wrote Andrew Binstock, senior contributing editor at InfoWorld. "…JBuilder feels solid throughout — a remarkable achievement given its status as a first release on Eclipse."

Binstock also praised CodeGear JBuilder 2007 for "a metrics package that is more extensive than any I’ve seen in any IDE" and "impressive collaborative features."

Said CodeGear CEO Jim Douglas, "We’d like to thank InfoWorld as well as all the supporters in the Java developer community for the fantastic reception and endorsement you’ve given to JBuilder 2007.
