Cambridge, MA, USA. September 18, 2002.
Systinet, leading independent provider of Web services infrastructure software, today announced the general availability of WASP (Web Applications and Services Platform) Developer for Borland JBuilder, 4.0 and WASP Developer for Eclipse, 4.0. WASP Developer 4.0 seamlessly extends these popular Java IDEs to enable the fast, easy creation, debugging and deployment of sophisticated SOAP Web services, and fully supports the latest SOAP 1.2 specification. The 4.0 release extends support to include the latest 7.0 release of Borland JBuilder and 2.0.1 release of Eclipse. Systinet is further encouraging adoption among developers by making WASP Developer 4.0 free for commercial use.
"When building Web services solutions, developers want to leverage their current applications and Java code whenever possible," said Charlie Ungashick, senior product marketing director for Systinet. "With WASP Developer, developers can quickly build and deploy sophisticated, secure Web services applications from within their favorite Java IDE. Systinet is committed to providing the most comprehensive support for the latest Web services standards, and providing the most flexible development environment for our users."
WASP Developer is part of Systinet's WASP suite of products, which provides everything businesses need to build, deploy, secure and manage Web services. In addition to WASP Developer, the suite includes WASP Server for Java, WASP Server for C++, and WASP UDDI. WASP Server for Java was the recipient of an Analyst's Choice Award from eWEEK and was described as "the best and most sophisticated Web services offering for Java, and the one we recommend to Java developers" in the June 24 edition.
WASP Developer provides a simple point-and-click code generation experience that can turn any existing Java application into a Web service. WASP Developer can automatically generate client-side code for an existing Web service, regardless of where it is running, the programming language in which it was developed, or the SOAP stack it uses. Developers can easily browse UDDI registries, select a Web service, import its WSDL file and generate client code. WASP Developer also includes SOAP Spy, an interactive message-tracking console that traces SOAP messages and allows arbitrary modification of any SOAP request. WASP Developer also supports instant deployment of Web services from within the IDE, and includes a runtime monitor that allows the developer to start and stop Web Services for testing purposes. Close integration with the UDDI registry ensures the synchronization of developed components within large development teams.
WASP Developer 4.0 is free for commercial use and can be downloaded from Systinet's Web site at www.systinet.com.
