Compuware Rolls Out Tools for Entire Development Team with OptimalJ 3

7/23/2003 - Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ: CPWR) announced the availability of Compuware OptimalJ 3.0, the latest version of its enterprise application development environment that helps organizations adopting J2EE standards increase both developer productivity and Java application quality. With version 3.0, Compuware OptimalJ now includes tools for the entire application development team, as well as expanded plug-ins to industry-leading Integrated Development Environments (IDE). In addition, Compuware extended OptimalJ’s integration capabilities to address the needs of application development projects that involve legacy integration.

“Some 75 percent of most large-scale Java projects fail by missing both time and budget projections, which means there is a clear business need for increasing developer productivity, flexibility and consistency,” said Mark Driver, Vice President and Research Director, Gartner, Inc. “Tools that abstract and simplify the foundations of J2EE while providing consistent quality through models and design patterns will be critical to the success of larger Java projects.”

Compuware OptimalJ accelerates the development, integration and maintenance of enterprise Java applications--enabling organizations to rapidly respond to business change. It is a model-driven, pattern-based development environment that dramatically reduces the time, cost, risk and complexity associated with delivering and maintaining Java applications. OptimalJ also implements the Object Management Group’s (OMG) Model Driven Architecture (MDA) in its entirety, which enables IT departments to design software more quickly while also improving the quality and reusability of the code.

“Compuware OptimalJ is an innovative solution for Java development teams seeking to reduce development cost, risk and complexity,” said Dan Schoenbaum, Vice President, Strategy, Compuware. “Compuware’s extensive experience with mainframe and legacy applications will continue to benefit our customers.”
