Borland Software Corp. today announced the availability of Borland JBuilder 6. It's the latest major release of the company's Java development environment, and it's been developed to support Mac OS X.
JBuilder enables developers to build business, database and distributed applications designed for the Java 2 platform. The software offers two-way visual designers and rapid deployment to J2EE platform application servers. JBuilder incorporates UML code visualization, refactoring, unit testing and documentation tools.
According to Borland, new features in JBuilder 6 include:
System requirements call for a PowerPC G3-based Mac or better operating at 350MHz or faster, and Mac OS X 10.1 or later. Borland notes that Borland, BEA, IBM, and Sun application servers are not available on the Apple Macintosh platform. As a result, some J2EE features may not be available.
Borland JBuilder 6 is available in Enterprise, Professional and Personal editions. Pricing ranges from US$54.95 to $2,999 depending on the version purchased. Upgrades for previous users are also available.
