Symantec last week began shipping version 3.0 of the popular Java development tool Visual Cafe.
There are three variants of the package: the Database, Professional and Standard editions.Users can plug in any version (after 1.1) of Sun's Java Development Kit. It also features a new set of Java Open APIs which make it easier to integrate with a wide range of development tools.
Full support has been added for the new JFC/Swing classes, including direct support for the Swing data model.
Symantec has also made improvements to Visual Cafe's user interface.
These include a system for diagramming interactions or connections between objects, and a simplified method of editing those interactions.
A Servlet Wizard has been added to allow developers to more easily produce server-side applets. The new version also allows developers to debug server-side applets on remote Web servers.
Pricing starts at #79 for the standard edition and the product is also available in fully localised versions for Japanese, German and French users.
