TogetherSofts ControlCenter is a mature design and modeling tool that gains significant code editing, Web service and re-factoring features in this release. For those organizing large Java projects, ControlCenter is a top pick. For .Net efforts, its not really ready yet.

SHORT-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // A much-improved code editor with outlining, syntax error highlighting and better code completion that will provide immediate productivity gains for developers.

LONG-TERM BUSINESS IMPACT // ControlCenters large set of design patterns, coupled with its re-factoring features, allows organizations to maintain code bases at less cost.

PROS // Productive, powerful code modeling environment; new editing features make mistakes easier to catch; many new re-factoring commands allow code to be reorganized; Web services support.

CONS // Code completion and syntax error highlighting only works for Java code; cant compile or debug .Net projects from the IDE.
