TogetherSoft has launched Together WebSphere Studio Edition, extending IBM’s development platform with modeling and productivity features.

This latest technology will be offered as part of the TogetherSoft family of products, including Together ControlCenter.

Together WebSphere Studio Edition provides an end-to-end development platform by integrating the analysis, design, implementation, testing and deployment of complex enterprise applications.

Together WebSphere Studio Edition uses development capabilities of the original Together ControlCenter, including its round-trip engineering, maintaining real-time synchronization between models and code.

Additionally, Together WebSphere Studio Edition uses ControlCenter’s support for development methodologies, including the Unified Process and agile processes like Extreme Programming, Feature Driven Development and others.

Raleigh-based TogetherSoft, which was recently acquired by Borland for $185 million, also announced that it will participate in a number of newly launched BEA WebLogic Galleries, hosted by ComponentSource and designed to increase Java developer productivity worldwide.

Through these galleries, TogetherSoft will offer Together ControlCenter, along with its recently introduced Together ControlCenter Accelerator for BEA WebLogic Workshop.

The galleries were announced by BEA (Nasdaq: BEAS) and ComponentSource in conjunction with a strategic alliance between the two companies.

Through TogetherSoft’s participation in these new galleries, BEA developers can gain access to Together ControlCenter’s combined UML-based application modeling and full-featured IDE, along with the accelerator which integrates ControlCenter into BEA’s Web services development framework

Using TogetherSoft’s accelerator, developers can build Unified Modeling Language (UML) models for Web services in ControlCenter that are accessed via the server-side control framework in WebLogic Workshop. Developers can also deploy Java Web Service files directly to BEA WebLogic Server directly from within ControlCenter.
