JIDEAL (Java IDE Abstraction Layer) provides a common interface to the most important API parts of IDEs like Together, JBuilder, Forte, etc. Besides support for menus, projects and so on, it contains an abstract Java syntax tree, which allows access to source code and creating source code. The layer consists of the interfaces and abstract classes for IDE add-ons on one side and plugins for supporting each IDE on the other side. Thus developers need only to develop for JIDEAL one time instead of customizing their tools for every IDE they want to support. There is also a reference plugin allowing parsing and generating Java classes without IDE based on a javacc-generated parser.
