“Java Studio Enterprise 8 allows me to be more productive than any other IDE. Using the collaboration module, I am able to perform code reviews and collaborative development whether I am in the office or elsewhere. The UML module allows me to model complex business systems and seamlessly generate or synchronize code, saving me hours of time it would have taken to re-factor code and then update the model,” said David Freels, Digital Reasoning Systems
