Introduction to Atelier
With the release of version 2016.2, InterSystems introduces Atelier, a new IDE based on the open-source Eclipse development environment. Atelier is in active development and will provide a full Caché development environment in the future. Studio remains available for customers with experience and investment in that technology.
Atelier is available as a separate download in addition to Caché or Ensemble. You can choose to install either a stand-alone Rich Client Platform (RCP) application, or a plug-in that can be added to an existing Eclipse installation. Users of the RCP application can add additional Eclipse plug-ins. Atelier uses the Eclipse auto-update mechanism to help users get the latest changes. For more information on Atelier, see http://www.intersystems.com/atelier, the Atelier home page, which has information on downloading and using Atelier. (The remaining chapters of this book describe Studio.)
