Flower Mound is pleased to recognize its recent showing in the annual Evans Data “User’s Choice IDEs” survey. MyEclipse was recognized as one of the world’s top eight IDEs, along with CodeGear’s Delphi, Sun’s NetBeans, Sun Studio, Oracle’s JDeveloper, Microsoft’s Visual Studio, Adobe’s Creative Suite and IBM Rational Tools. Of note, the top IDEs list included only four Java IDEs.
The study evaluated multiple aspects of each IDE, including technical specifications and overall usability statistics to provide an umbrella value of user satisfaction. MyEclipse conquered its Java competitors in the categories of third-party tool integration, the availability of third-party tools and was rated as the best Eclipse-based editor tools among the IDEs surveyed, beating out even IBM Rational tools in all three categories.
“In today’s tools economy, the ability for developers to quickly and easily move between solutions and add capabilities based on the task at hand is invaluable,” said Todd Williams, vice president of technology for Genuitec. “We’ve demonstrated that high-priced solutions that lock you in to a corporate tool stack are meeting resistance in the marketplace, and we’re proud to be integral in that trend.”
“Java shops today are looking at a fairly level marketplace when it comes to features and functionality,” said Maher Masri, CEO of Genuitec. “The discussion now is based on value both in price and tool flexibility. With some solutions at 70 times the price of MyEclipse, the value proposition is abundantly clear. MyEclipse is therefore proud to be recognized as a top IDE in the industry, with unmatched ability for developers to find, integrate and maintain all of their favorite tools without the vendor lock-in or high price of competitive solutions.”
