Servoy 4.0

Servoy Inc. has introduced Servoy 4.0 -- one code base for desktop AND Web applications. Servoy 4.0 -- now an Eclipse plug-in -- is a major upgrade from all previous versions of Servoy, enabling Servoy developers to produce enterprise-level applications using a standards-based IDE (Integrated Development Environment). Servoy consists of a GUI designer, is fully event-driven and scriptable through JavaScript. As a plug-in for Eclipse -- an open source, free, extensible development framework -- Servoy 4.0 can inherit a form from another parent form within a solution -- eliminating the need to duplicate forms with similar functionality.

Servoy 4.0 form variables enable developers to define a variable in the context of a form, rather than having to define multiple application-wide "global variables". Additionally, Servoy 4.0 within the Eclipse framework enables developers to set custom preferences when creating/editing Servoy methods, such as: auto-commenting; auto-indenting of code; automatically adding a semi-colon at the end of each line of code; developer-defined code coloring; enhanced auto-completion of code; conditional/persistent breakpoints in debugging; and more.

Servoy 4.0 also offers full support for CVS (Concurrent Versions System) and SVN (Subversion), the more flexible revision control system and successor to CVS.
