Sun's Forte for Java is based on an Integrated Development Environment
(IDE) called NetBeans. The folks using this tool are open source code
developers, a key target audience of an OHS.

As you can see there is active development of the feature set. Clicking
on "modules" from will show you the categories of
add-in tools available. Jack and I are already using this environment
for Nexist.

Take care,
