The XDEV Software Corporation, located in San Francisco and Silicon Valley, set its goal to radically simplify application development with Java.
Our vision was to create the first Java development environment, that functions like MS Access, FoxPro, Oracle Forms, Visual Basic, Delphi and others 4gl solutions.
Therefore every 4gl developer, who thinks Java programming is too complicated , laborious and time consuming with conventional editors like Eclipse and Netbeans, should finally be capable of switching over to Java quickly and without a great learning expense.
With XDEV 3 this vision finally becomes a reality.
From the start this project has been supported by Sun Microsystems, because it has potential to bring many Access, FoxPro, Oracle Forms, Visual Basic, Delphi and other 4gl developers to Java quickly and easily.
In 2006 we presented XDEV 1 for the first time at the CeBIT in Hannover, Germany.
In 2007 XDEV 2 followed with a lot of new features.
In 2008 we released the XDEV Application Framework as Open Source. on to the XDEV Community. The advancement however will still be coordinated and promoted by XDEV Software Corp.
In 2009 we started the development of XDEV 3.
In 2011 we launched XDEV 3.
In 2012 we launched the XDEV Component Suite.
