OBJECTSOFT RELEASES BREWMASTER
A JAVA DEVELOPMENT ENVIRONMENT WITH INTEGRATED CODE MANAGEMENT


CHICAGO, IL. - October 3, 1997 - Objectsoft, Inc. today announces the availability of BrewMaster SE, an integrated Java(TM) code management tool for application development. BrewMaster offers powerful browsing tools, code search utilities, version control and build management tools to help Java developers better manage the application development process. BrewMaster is the first in a series of tools from Objectsoft that help the Java developer build commercial-strength Java applications.

BrewMaster is a fully integrated Java development environment with code management. Features include:

  • Full import and parsing capabilities for Java source code
  • Integrated version control for methods, classes, packages and projects
  • Browsers for the management of projects, packages, classes and methods
  • Support for the concept of class partitions
  • Code search utilities to locate method implementers and senders, as well as class references. Build management tools to support complex compilation
  • Support for integration with third-party compilers, debuggers and appletviewers

"A good development environment must support flexible and powerful browsing and good code search utilities to allow developers the ability to "see" and "understand" large and/or complex development efforts," says Objectsoft president and CEO Kevin Clark. "As a foundation of quality development, any significant software development must be integrated with version control. BrewMaster provides excellent browsing capabilities and integrated version control to provide the first truly scaleable Java development environment."

"The Java development community now can benefit from the version control capabilities provided by BrewMaster to build large-scale business-critical Java applications," said Reed Hornberger, director of software development, Sun Microsystems, Inc. "Additionally, BrewMaster on Solaris will enable developers to take advantage of the leading network computing platform to deliver the scalability and high performance required by these large-scale applications."

BrewMaster is a tool offering a large-scale integrated solution for complex object-oriented development for Java. BrewMaster excels in the support of any size project or development effort. It is highly focused on software engineering concepts that improve the quality of software development across teams of developers. In this release, BrewMaster is being delivered on Windows NT/95 and Solaris platforms.

Clark adds, "Eighteen months ago we began to investigate Java as a language for development. We discovered the lack of good tools that encouraged the browsing and understanding of the Java class libraries. We also discovered the lack of integrated version control with the existing Java development environments. This was the basis for our creation of BrewMaster."
