NEW YORK, NY
— ( December 14th, 2004) — jProductivity, a leading provider
of Java-based software development tools that enhance productivity and
protect intellectual property, today announced the release of
Productivity! Version 2.5, the latest update to jProductivity's popular
IDE (Integrated Development Environment) enhancement for Borland
With Productivity! 2.5,
users now have complete interoperability with JBuilder 2005, Borland's
industry-leading development environment for Java applications.
Productivity! 2.5 also includes numerous improvements that increase
speed, convenience and accuracy for Java software developers, including
a new spell check feature for source code that emphasizes Java-specific
committed to providing the most efficient development environment for
Java programmers. That commitment includes constantly updating
Productivity! to take advantage of the latest industry developments,"
said Gregory Ledenev, chief technical officer of jProductivity.
"Version 2.5 of Productivity! is another valuable step in that process,
allowing our many users to utilize the benefits of JBuilder 2005 while
also enjoying the rich toolset Productivity! provides."
Since its introduction in
2001, Productivity! has become a favorite IDE enhancement for Java
developers due to its wide range of features that reduce repetitive
tasks and increase accuracy. Statistics have shown that
Productivity! increases coding output anywhere from 30% to 50%
depending on the project complexity, tasks and customer knowledge,
giving the product one of the best ROI in the software industry.
Among a wide range of other usability enhancements,
the new spell check tool in Productivity! 2.5 adds to programming
quality and speed by letting developers quickly check source code,
comments and strings for accuracy. The feature's "Java-smart"
capability allows users to check common Java terms, ensure accuracy of
identifiers' names by correctly finding key words in each name, and
scan JavaDoc comments while skipping HTML tags. What's
more, Productivity! 2.5's spell check also effectively preserves the
consistency of source code by refactoring identifiers during name
Productivity! has been created based on the
experiences and feedback of hundreds of Java developers, enabling
programmers to write clean, highly modular, easily expandable and well
maintained code. With Productivity!, users can concentrate on
system design that employs favorite design patterns and code quality,
rather than on routine code operations.
Productivity! 2.5 includes a host of tools and shortcuts to improve
efficiency. For example, favorite code fragments can be reused,
super interfaces can be added, and super classes changed in several
simple steps. Productivity! instantly makes coders aware of any
errors, then provides immediate assistance in resolving them.
Productivity! is also the only IDE enhancement in the market with a
unique "auto-fix" facility that makes fixing certain types of errors
fast and easy.
Productivity! automatically avoids annoying dialogs
and wizards that impede the coding process, while enabling users to
navigate freely through classes, methods and fields. Help on
classes and methods is quickly available where needed. Methods
and constructors can be overridden with just a couple of mouse clicks,
and access methods can be added to fields quickly.
To shorten learning time for legacy or third-party
code, Productivity! provides rich navigation and information
capabilities, including convenient hyperlinks, to learn and understand
code as the user types. Imports can be added to programs
automatically without typing. Even source code documentation is
easier to make, thanks to the documentation design feature that
includes rich formatting capabilities to improve the look and feel of
text. Finally, Productivity! helps developers plan and execute
their projects with a built-in Task List.
Whether the user is a programming manager who wants
to significantly increase the productivity of his or her team, or a
lone programmer who wants to cut through the overhead and annoyances of
developing Java applications, Productivity! 2.5 and can powerfully
increase application development efficiency. Companies can
further increase output with jProductivity's Productivity! Pro, a
premium version that includes additional code generation tools,
powerful IDE improvements, editor enhancements and options, and
navigation tools. To learn more about Productivity! Pro, visit
