Simplicity for Java – General Availability
Data Representations, Inc. is pleased to announce the general availability
of its flagship product, Simplicity for Java(TM). Simplicity for Java is a
rapid application design tool for Java 1.1. Written completely in Java,
Simplicity lets developers build Java applications and applets
interactively. Developers can click-n-drop Java Layouts, AWT Components,
Simplicitys own extended components, and Third Party Java Beans into their
applications. Simplicity features on-the-fly execution of Java source code,
enabling applications to execute class declaration code, constructor code,
method code, and event code as they are designed. This dynamic execution
reduces the traditional, three step, Code-Compile-Test, software
development process to a single step: Design. Every change that is made to
an applications source code is immediately integrated into a working model
of the program.
Simplicity also features the Code Sourcerer(TM), which interviews the user
in order to determine what should happen in response to events and writes
the appropriate Java source code. This allows Simplicity for Java to be
used by both experienced and inexperienced Java developers.
Simplicity for Java comes with an Integrated Design Environment (IDE) which
organizes all of the components of a project. A project can include
multiple applications/applets, images, sounds, Java source/class files,
HTML files, Java Beans, and any other data files related to a project. The
Simplicity IDE also relieves the user from worrying about pathnames on both
a local file system and on a web server.
Simplicity for Java is written completely in Java 1.1 to run on any
Java-enabled platform, including OS/2 Warp, Solaris, Win95/NT, HP-UX, Linux
and many others. Simplicity for Java has been submitted for 100% Pure Java
A free tryout version of Simplicity for Java is available from Data
Representations’ web site, http://www.datarepresentations.com/. Simplicity
for Java is priced at $89 US for a single user license.
