Developer Workflow for Oracle Solaris Studio

Oracle Solaris Studio provides tools to help developers create applications that run on Oracle Solaris. The tools can support developers who want a graphical IDE to manage many development tasks for them, and developers who want to control all aspects of their software development using their own methods.

You do not need to make a commitment to using the IDE or the command line because the tools are designed to be used in any combination. You can create a project in the IDE and still build the source of the project with dmake or make from the command line if you want. You can use the Performance Analyzer or DLight on the binary of a project you created in the IDE. The IDE keeps its project files separate from the source files so there is no dependency.

If you are a devoted Emacs or vi user, you can continue to use your accustomed environment and ignore the IDE, but adopt the Oracle Solaris Studio compilers and performance tools to make your application run optimally in Oracle Solaris on Oracle Sun hardware.

The following diagram shows the developer workflow for the Oracle Solaris Studio tools when developing with or without the graphical IDE.
