Tight Integration of Java Modelling Environment Helps Speed Time to Market for eBusiness Applications

Princeton Softech today announced the integration of Select Enterprise with Borland® JBuilder 4, making it the first company to offer an award-winning Java application design/model synchronisation tool that is compatible with Inprise Corporation's (NASDAQ: INPR), herein referred to as Borland, market leading Java development environment. Customers using these two award-winning Java development environments have already realised a considerable return on their investment in CBD development efforts, as a result of productivity gains and quality improvements. Princeton Softech is a subsidiary of Computer Horizons Corporation (NASDAQ: CHRZ) that provides enabling software for developing and deploying high-performance eBusiness solutions.

Computer Sciences Corporation (NYSE: CSC), one of the world's leading consulting and IT services firms, has benefited greatly from the integration of the two products. According to David Moran, development manager, CSC: "By using Princeton Softech's Select Enterprise with Borland JBuilder, we've not only saved time but gained a much better understanding of the CBD development process, which has shortened our time-to-market and enabled us to deliver eBusiness applications that are in line with CSC's business objectives. The combination is a practical solution for designers and developers alike. By using Select Enterprise with Borland JBuilder 4, we can automatically generate framework Borland JBuilder code based on Select Enterprise designs. Most importantly, Princeton Softech understands that real life modelling and development is not simply round-trip engineering. Select Enterprise allows us to keep the application design and model synchronised with ongoing development, maintenance, enhancement and integration tasks."

"Our customers need best-of-breed development platforms to build today's complex eBusiness applications," states Tony de la Lama, vice president and general manager of Borland's Java business unit. "We're pleased that Princeton Softech supports Borland JBuilder 4, because as time-to-market pressures grow, Select Enterprise's unique synchronisation capability makes it an ideal companion for Borland JBuilder 4. The pairing of the two products allows IT organisations to speed Java development and ensure high quality results."

"By using Princeton Softech's tools, we can create higher quality applications, because we have a complete and traceable set of design work products that can easily be reviewed by others who are not connected to the toolset," adds David Moran. "One of the most significant benefits is the shared repository, which is essential for large projects, where you need to share consistent views of objects and other items with the rest of the team. We perform a great deal of bespoke software design completely within a single, consistent shared repository, with the certainty that this design is reflected in the final system implementation."

"Princeton Softech continues its history of innovation by being the first to support Borland JBuilder 4," notes Hedley Apperly, senior product marketing manager, Princeton Softech. "The real value to our clients is that Select Enterprise allows them to work, in parallel, on the model and the Borland JBuilder Java code, with simultaneous changes reconciled through synchronisation. Thus, business requirements are always synchronised with Java code."
