Sun's Sunsoft unit has posted version 2.0 of its Java Workshop development environment on its Web site.
The offering, which costs $99, includes a wizard for automatically generating Java Beans components, associated Bean Info files containing Bean metadata, and Customizer class files.
The tool's graphical user interface builder enables developers to import third party Beans into folders so they appear as part of the palette, while the original browser interface has been dropped in favour of a traditional front end as a result of user requests.
A freshly tuned virtual machine is now claimed to have addressed Workshop's sluggish performance along with a rewritten version of the Java compiler, which is said to be between 10 and 15 times faster.
Long term, Workshop is expected to be integrated with Sunsoft's other development tools, the Javaplan modelling tool and Javastudio Beans component assembly environment, to create a common, multilingual development environment. Database connectivity will also be added in later releases.
