What is e*Tool ?

e*Tool Home

e*Tool Version 0.5.0 is released!

e*Tool is a developer tool for SeeBeyond's EAI product e*Gate. Its goal is to provide an integrated development environment just like classical development tools (i.e. Visual Studio from Microsoft) with a syntax highlighting text editor as well as e*Gate Enterprise Manager-like features (schema object editing, schema import/export with repository, running control brokers, registry file check-in / check-out etc.). It's written using e*Gate C API with VC++/MFC and some 3rd party libraries (open source and other non commercial). e*Gate's C API is entirely encapsulated in C++ classes.
