Studio for kdb+ has been developed since October 2002, and the source was released to the kdb+ community in September 2008 as the primary developer wanted to allow the community to develop the application further.
Studio is written 100% in Java. The primary motivation for its development was to be able to comfortably access remote kdb+ processes. In time, it has become clear that it is not an IDE as such, but is better described as a rapid execution environment. One can edit text in the "scratch" window, highlight a selection and execute it against a remote kdb+ process via tcp/ip, with the results displayed as a grid or as in the classic kdb+ console.
