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, the Atelier home page, which has information on downloading and using Atelier. (The remaining chapters of this book describe Studio.)
