    Further Information:

    CoffeeShop is the Development Platform for Javatm and JavaBeanstm, which is completely implemented using the Java language. CoffeeShop lets you create applets, applications or JavaBeans components for the Javatm platform.

    CoffeeShop provides you with many tools for your development needs. Although CoffeeShop is targeted to professional developers, it is also easy to get rolling with. But SFS Software didn't clutter the software with unecessary wizards that provide irrelevant advice. Java is much more than some blinking or nervous text applets. CoffeeShop has many features that give you full transparency to your code and make it as scalable as possible.


    Powerful Source code editor The CoffeeShop Source code editor is very easy-to-use, comfortable and powerful. It contains a Source code colorizer, is able to open multiple files and projects within one fine-designed window.
    GUI builder Is it the best GUI builder available anywhere? See for yourself, CoffeeShop's visual programming interface three supports Layoutmanagers now: BorderLayout, FlowLayout, GridLayout. CoffeeShop supports the Java Foundation classes (Swing components).

    CoffeeShop's centerpiece is its Visual Programming Interface. With this interface you can write Applets, Applications or JavaBeans in an easy to use, intuitive visual environment. Select a Component or a Bean from the AWT or Swing bars and place it onto a visual form and change some properties in the Inspector. If you ever worked with development tools like Delphi, Visual Basic or Visual C++ then you can start right now.

    CoffeeShop lets you place AWT components, Swing components, JavaBeans components or any other component on visual forms. The "Shapes Window" lets you align and resize these components on the form via drag & drop and gives you the perfect tool to manage all components via a new zoom in / zoom out feature, which makes the management easy, (i.e. when you are working with multiple panels and containers)

    Debugger The CoffeeShop debugger is available to you in all types of projects you are creating. Simply place a breakpoint in your source code and start your applet, application or component. CoffeeShop will then open it's Watchlist, which will give you all required information about your variables, expression etc.

    PreProcessor This professional programmer tool is now included in CoffeeShop. That means you can use functions like #ifdef, #undef, #define, #endif, #include, #ifndef and many more in your source code now The preprocessor functions also enables you to create debug/release versions. Read more.
