Borland on Thursday will release a "migration" tool that allows Visual Caf? customers to easily switch to Borland's JBuilder Java developer tool. The migration tool allows a developer to transfer a software project from Visual Caf? to Borland's JBuilder format. Earlier this summer, Borland joined IBM, Sun Microsystems and Oracle in offering price discounts and training classes for their own tools tocustomers of WebGain, which went out of business earlier this summer. Start-up TogetherSoft recently the Visual Caf? tools and plans to update the product in the future.
Borland is once again targeting Java software developers orphaned by the demise of WebGain, maker of the popular Visual Caf? Java development tool.
