Eclipse IDE

After ten successful years with an IDE in the NetBeans environment, BASIS introduces all-new IDE plug-ins to one of the most popular and powerful IDEs available, Eclipse. This major step forward meets our ongoing goal to make BBj project development life easier and more productive. Regardless of the development platform, Eclipse offers a host of existing plug-ins and configurability options to optimize and streamline the development cycle.

Includes: AppBuilder, CodeEditor, and WindowBuilder.

NetBeans IDE

BASIS is gradually replacing this IDE with the modern Eclipse IDE plug-ins, listed above.

Includes: AppBuilder, FormBuilder, and the Data Dictionary module.

Barista Application Framework
BASIS takes a new productivity leap forward in GUI development with a rapid application development tool ‒ the Barista® Application Framework. Barista is BASIS' GUI-only data dictionary-driven development framework and runtime engine. Barista facilitates the following:

  • New GUI application development
  • Conversion of CUI applications to GUI
  • Modernization of existing GUI applications

Barista is database independent and works with both modern SQL RDBMS as well as legacy BASIS file types. Barista imports a third party RDBMS or a BASIS data dictionary and, with little development effort, delivers a functional GUI application running on multiple platforms with a modern GUI look-and-feel, standardized keyboard and mouse navigation, and a built-in SQL-based inquiry engine. Barista delivers enormous productivity gains on both initial product development and, more importantly, on future application maintenance and enhancement tasks.
