Curl Announces Public Beta Availability of Eclipse-Based RIA Development Tools

Executes Next Phase in Delivering New Set of Enterprise RIA Tools Based on the Eclipse Framework

Curl is executing on the next phase in its Eclipse strategy with the availability of the beta versions of the new Eclipse-based Curl Rich Internet Application (RIA) development tools. The first release of the Curl Development tools for Eclipse (CDE) and newest release of the Curl Runtime Environment (RTE), Version 6.0.4, provide enterprise developers with the tools to build and deploy their mission-critical, enterprise-class RIAs within the increasingly popular Eclipse environment.

The CDE is a set of Eclipse plug-ins that provides an environment for developing programs in the Curl language for the Curl RIA platform. Curl recently announced its intention to eventually replace all of its development tools with Eclipse-based ones. The CDE and Curl IDE, the company's original integrated development environment, will co-exist at least through the first full release of the new Eclipse-based tools.

"As the first major step in implementing our Eclipse strategy, we are excited now to provide Curl developers with access to the universal Eclipse IDE," said Bert Halstead, vice president and chief architect, Curl. "By combining the highest-performing enterprise RIA platform, Curl, with the best general-purpose IDE, Eclipse, we are giving programmers with an updated set of development tools."

The CDE is available for Windows, Linux and Eclipse 3.3 SDK or any Eclipse-based IDE based on Eclipse 3.3. Major features in the CDE include:

  • Language sensitive editor
  • Integration into the Eclipse debugger
  • Language sensitive search
  • Integration into the Eclipse workspace for Curl projects and preferences
  • Curl program deployment
  • Tools such as a visual layout editor (VLE), VLE extension editor, profiler, code coverage, class browser, inspector and Hypertext Transfer Protocol Overview (HTTP) monitor
  • Documentation

The beta version of the CDE and Version 6.0.4 of the Curl RTE are currently available for download at:

The full release of Curl's Eclipse-based RIA development tools are expected to be available during Summer 2008.
