"Use-Anywhere" connectors allow tool portability, interoperability.

Genuitec, LLC, the leading provider of the popular MyEclipse integrated development environment (IDE) and a founding member of the Eclipse Foundation, today announced the immediate availability of their popular SNAPs tools to Sun's NetBeans and Microsoft's Visual Studio developers via "Use-Anywhere" connectors.

"The 'Use-Anywhere' concept was the logical next step for our Fusion Technology suite," says Wayne Parrot, vice president of product development for Genuitec. "We realize that developers use multiple tools and environments. Now, they can take their SNAPs with them wherever they go."

Users of NetBeans and Visual Studio are now able to utilize the MyEclipse Visual HTML Designer, XML Editor, Database Explorer and Image Editor SNAPs directly in their own environment. Additional SNAPs will be made available using other MyEclipse features by integrating open source technologies and through partner extensions.

The SNAPs are part of the expanding Fusion Technology suite of tools that allows developers to accomplish focused tasks without the weight of an entire IDE. They can also be used with other development tools thereby freeing users from the vendor lock-in that is commonly associated with development environments.

"We proved we could fuse external technologies when we ported Matisse into MyEclipse. Then, SNAPs took this concept to the next level by allowing us to add external functionality to our toolset without adding weight to the IDE. Today, we're proud to go even one step further and deliver our tools directly to users of other environments," said Maher Masri, president and CEO of Genuitec. "There will be more connections to come in the near future as well," he added.
