BASIS offers the Business BASIC Development Tools (BDT) collection of plug-ins for the Eclipse IDE. These plug-ins help you write, run, and maintain your BBj programs as efficiently as possible.
Includes: AppBuilder, CodeEditor, and WindowBuilder.
Barista Application Framework
BASIS offers 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:
Provides a number of tools to help developers rapidly develop robust business applications.
Assists developers in converting legacy character-based user interfaces (CUI) to beautiful, eye-popping GUI interfaces.
Modernize CUI and GUI applications and deploy them as desktop, browser-based (BUI and DWC), and mobile applications all from a single code base.
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.
