iizi IDE

Developers who are familiar with Eclipse will find that much of the same workspace functionality exists in the iizi Workbench. Any options that are not user-facing, can be accessed by right-clicking and double clicking menu items. As with all Eclipse-based development environments, the iiziGo IDE presents a collection of Views and Editors. The editors that are visible in Eclipse at any given time are context sensitive, and depend on which Tab is selected or which item in a tree view is selected.

The iizi Explorer

The Eclipse Project Explorer is replaced by the iizi Explorer and contains four views: your iiziModule Project Explorer, the Outline View, the iizi Server Configuration View and a Data Source Explorer.

The main workspace

The main workspace is determined by whichever Editor Tab is selected at top. Tabs can represent Panels editor, Text tables editor, the Virtualspace editor, the Image Definitions editor and, of course, the Eclipse Java code editor.

Open Editor Tabs

All menu bars and toolbars are context sensitive to the selected Tab. When you start the iizi Workspace, a Panel Editor is already open for each main Panel, along with a Text table Editor open for a Text table, and a Virtualspace Editor open for a virtualspace; all these are created when starting with iiziGo Quickstart.

The bottom section of the main workspace holds the Problems View, the iizi Console, and a Session View which are configurable and familiar Eclipse debug views.

Setup requirements and updates

Setup requirements and updates

iiziGo is based on Eclipse and comes in 3 installation types for Windows:

  • Win64 iiziGo setup executable including Java SE 8 JDK.
  • Win64 iiziGo setup executable without Java.
  • Jar file containing an image of iiziGo using. To start iiziGo, launch the iizigo.exe executable.

For the two latter installations, you must have a 64-bit Java Development Kit (JDK) Java SE 8 update 151 or better.

For macOS, a Disk Image (.dmg file) installs iiziGo without Java JDK. You must install e.g. Oracle JDK 8 or AdoptOpenJDK 8 with Hotspot or better.

Minimum Setup Requirements

The iiziGo is released for Windows and macOS. The following minimum specifications are required to work with iiziGo:

  • You must have access to admin privileges on your system.
  • A large screen (typically 27” or better) with a high resolution, minimum size in “Full HD” (1920×1080) but higher is strongly recommended (typically 2560×1600 or better).
  • 8 GB of RAM or greater (16 GB recommended).
  • Windows 7 64-bit version or better or macOS Sierra or better.
  • Optionally Chrome (Canary) for developers.
  • 64-bit Java Development Kit (JDK) SE 8 update 151 or better. This does not apply if you choose to install the Win64 iiziGo setup that includes Java.

The iiziGo Eclipse Java process is by default configured to 2 GB Heap Size in iiziGo.ini located in the installation directory.

Versions and updates

Easily update iiziGo as you would any Eclipse plugin; go to Help > Check for updates, or click on the update prompt when update notifications appear in your iiziGo IDE.
