The SDE Framework is designed for
building integrated development environments (IDEs) .SDE (Sand Development
Environment) is a kind of universal tool platform - an open extensible IDE for
anything and nothing in particular. In this website you can find a general introduction to the
SDE Framework Platform .It is entirely
written in C#, and supports various project types in multiple programming
Understanding SDE Framework.
So what is SDE itself? Although
SDE can act as an IDE for many different languages it comes with C# and VB.net
support built-in. They are provided as a sample of what can be done (and how)
with this framework .
SDE refers to itself as a
universal tool platform, capable of handling IDEs for many different languages.
It simply defines the basic structure of an IDE.
It's important to realize that
although SDE is written in managed code (C#), it's intended to be
language-neutral. To develop in any programming language, all you need is the
corresponding package for this programming language.
The real value of
the SDE Framework comes from the many plug-ins and packages that each "teach"
SDE how to work with things (source code, OO models, Web content, XML, graphics,
workflow processes, video) almost anything you can imagine. SDE packages
plug-ins interact with the platform and other packages or plugins. This can
provide users with a seamless work experience. In fact, a user may not even
realize where one tool starts and another begins.
SDE is under active development, we're seeking people who have experience
with .Net (C#/VB.Net) who would like to contribute to the project.
