SunSoft Inc has delayed plans to release its Java Studio drag and drop development software so it can carry out additional testing. The ‘Java for the rest of us’ tool had been scheduled for release in mid-June, enabling non-developers to use reusable JavaBean components to create Java systems visually without having to write a line of code. According to SunSoft, it is precisely Java Studio’s ease of use that has caused the delay. With the product aimed at the non-technical market, SunSoft wants to be absolutely sure it gets the user-interaction and interface right before the product hits the shelves, although this does suggest that it hasn’t got it right so far. When it does finally arrive in September, Java Studio will be an authoring environment for the rapid development of interactive Java content into new or existing Web pages, which includes a Visual Java assembly tool, an HTML authoring tool and a full set of JavaBean components. Meanwhile SunSoft also seems to have hit problems with Ice-T, its Java-to-C/C++ middleware for connecting Java clients, applets and objects to legacy applications across the Net. Ice-T was at one time slated for release with Java Studio, but now it has been pushed back until later in the year. It seems a little re-jigging is going on here, with SunSoft saying work’s being done to see how Ice-T fits in with the Corba and Java approach.
