Does anybody use Developer Studio and Forms designer in a development environment?

Call me old fashioned but, I develop in a green screen environment and I just can't get to grips with these newer tools.

What does everybody else think?

Studio is currently being used on over 30 active sites and
not just for GUI development. You should be looking to use this environment as it both gives you a heigher level of productivity and is a stepping stone to the next totaly desktop based development environment due out 1st qtr 2000.
Don't get left behind when these exiting developments occur.

p.s Yes I know I'm biased (I was the designer of studio) but
the future of Proiv development is in the hands of developers - send me your comments.

I was involved in the beta testing of Developer Studio and since then I have tracked it's progress everytime a new release is published. I have even trained developers in how to use it and sold it's virtues to the best of my ability. However, I still prefer the green screen type development environment regardless of if I'm writing a GUI or a green screen application.

I look forward to seeing the new development tool you mention. Any ideas what is going to be in it?

Do we really need another development tool?

We have Superlayer, which we were told was to be the future of development.

Then came developer studio, which once again, would be the future.

I have heard of a ProAide variant which will be the future.

Now you mention another 'New Development Tool'.

It seems that the future of ProIV development is a little fragmented. It would be nice if ProIV Ltd could channel ALL their energies into providing one reliable development tool.

Sorry to be so openly cynical BUT:

It would be nice if PRO-IV could channel all their energies into providing one reliable LANGUAGE, never mind the development tools.

'Another new tool' - I assume JADE - seems to have disappeared. The rumour mill suggests that marketing staff have been told to stop talking about it and that the whole project has in fact been canned.

PRO-IV are now selling PRO-AIDE again, certainly on mainframe!
