While consumers typically require faster and more user-friendly applications, the needs of the enterprise are much greater

Earlier this year, Curl introduced its Eclipse development strategy, which included joining the Eclipse Foundation and unveiling the company's plans to base the next phase of its enterprise RIA development tools on the Eclipse framework. With the CDE, Curl has followed through on its strategy and showcased its continued commitment to bringing the best tools for building enterprise-class Rich Internet Applications, which require high performance, strong security and support for large data sets. The CDE and the Curl IDE, the company's original integrated development environment, will co-exist in this release and for some time in the future.

"While consumers typically require faster and more user-friendly applications, the needs of the enterprise are much greater," said Bert Halstead, vice president and chief architect, Curl. "This has put intense pressure on corporate developers to build more robust applications even more efficiently to meet this demand. We are addressing the needs of those developers and the enterprises they serve by basing the next phase of our tools on Eclipse."

The CDE includes a language sensitive editor and search, integration into the Eclipse debugger as well as the Eclipse workspace for Curl projects and preferences, and documentation. Additionally, it also allows Curl program deployment and includes tools such as a VLE extension editor, profiler, code coverage, class browser, inspector and Hypertext Transfer Protocol Overview (HTTP) monitor. The CDE is available for Windows, Linux and Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4 SDKs or any Eclipse-based IDE based on Eclipse 3.3 and 3.4.
