Teamstudio announced the introduction of its newest tool, Teamstudio Analyzer for Java, an audit tool for testing, debugging and documenting Java applications.
The company says that with 150 rules that address coding topics such as standards compliance, unused elements and common coding issues, Teamstudio Analyzer for Java should be a thorough best-practices tool that ensures the reliability of Java applications. Analyzer for Java is designed to work directly from the developer's IDE, with initial support built in for Eclipse and Borland's Jbuilder, as well as Ant, a Java-based build tool from the Apache Software Foundation.
Analyzer for Java is Teamstudio's first offering for Java developers and marks the inception of the company's Teamstudio for Java product line. CEO Nigel Cheshire explains: "With IDC and Interactive Week reporting that by 2003, there will be 4.2 million Java developers, we see an opportunity to fill a need in the Java marketplace with intuitive, productivity-enhancing development tools for Java developers. We've successfully applied those characteristics to our Notes and Web-to-host tools, and we're going to parlay that success in the Java market. This first tool-Teamstudio Analyzer for Java-is one such example, providing developers with a means of ensuring the quality, reliability and scalability of their Java applications."
