Increase productivity with an Enterprise Generation Language development platform

IBM® Rational® Business Developer is an Eclipse-based integrated development environment (IDE) that simplifies the development of service-oriented architecture (SOA) applications using the Enterprise Generation Language (EGL). Developers can now deliver web, Web 2.0 and mobile applications and services without having to master Java and SOA programming, allowing them to create, test and debug EGL applications while generating Java, Javascript or COBOL code for deployment. RPG and COBOL developers can transition to EGL easily, as it allows them to create portable applications with modern architectures and user interfaces, without having to learn concepts of object-oriented languages.

Rational Business Developer simplifies development, providing developers with a single language for:

EGL transformation

Simplified service creation

Multiplatform deployment

UML support

Extensible platform
