Unisys ClearPath Visual IDE is a software product that extends the capabilities of Microsoft Visual Studio to enable you to use it to develop ClearPath applications.
Unisys ClearPath Visual IDE is a plug-in for Visual Studio that provides an integrated development environment you can use to create projects, edit ClearPath source files, and build solutions using the familiar Visual Studio interface you already use for C#, C++, ClearPath Forward ePortal, Agile Business Suite, and other languages.
Developers Become Productive Faster
There is a large community of developers who have experience using Microsoft Visual Studio to develop enterprise-class applications.
Unisys ClearPath Visual IDE enables these developers to leverage their Visual Studio experience and reduces the time required for them to become productive ClearPath application developers.
Reduce the Cost of Developing Distributed Applications
Unisys ClearPath Visual IDE, when combined with other Microsoft Visual Studio plug-ins, enables a developer to use a single tool – Microsoft Visual Studio – to develop distributed applications having components running in different environments such as ClearPath MCP, Agile Business Suite, ClearPath Forward ePortal, Microsoft Windows, and others. Using a single tool makes developers more productive and can help to reduce software licensing and support costs.
