Developer dependencies

Pushing the envelope: favourite things

It's interesting to find out what other folks are using to get the job done and to write down what you're dependent on. Fwiw the tools I touch the most in work, and would affect my ability to do my job, if they weren't available or as good (or some as bad) are:

  • Ant
  • 'Perl style' regexes
  • WinCVS
  • Putty
  • VSS
  • Tomcat
  • JBoss
  • Cygwin
  • Python
  • JUnit
  • JPad Pro
  • IDEA
  • Emacs
  • TextPad
  • Mozilla
  • Trillian
  • WinZip
  • OpenOffice
  • SmartFTP

Oddly, I don't seem to be reliant on operating systems, at least no more than I am a particular PC maker; I'll take that as a blessing.

Things I'll be seeing more of this year:

  • PropelX Studio
  • Relax NG
  • JIRA
  • Jython
  • JDepend
  • Axis
  • C#
  • NUnit
  • VB6
  • BizTalk 2002
  • Somebody's AOP system

And finally, things fading from memory:

  • make
  • gcc
  • Antlr
  • Outlook
  • IE
  • XMLSpy
