One of the most powerful aspects of the IRI Workbench GUI is that it is built on Eclipse™.

The Eclipse Integrated Development Environment (IDE) gives IRI CoSort, IRI Fast Extract (FACT), IRI FieldShield, IRI RowGen, and IRI NextForm users:

  • A familiar, common GUI, and a shared metadata, job, and workflow management system
  • The power to combine products in purpose-driven ways (e.g., the offline reorg wizard)
  • Direct browsing and data movement for local and remote source files and on-line RDBs
  • Ergonomic features like perspective control and text search (e.g., for metadata impact analysis)
  • Plug-in interactions for BI/analytics (e.g., BIRT), metadata asset control (e.g. EGit), data modeling, etc.
  • Access to Hadoop (HDFS), mainframe, semi-structured, and unstructured data sources
  • The opportunity to use Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) modules from providers like W2O2

For example, the Eclipse data tools platform (DTP) plug-in gives IRI Software users the ability to browse and edit their source and target databases as they:

  • unload in bulk with FACT, and select/filter in CoSort/SortCL or in SQL
  • load in bulk with pre-CoSorted data, and insert/update in CoSort/SortCL or SQL
  • manipulate and protect table contents with FieldShield (or CoSort/SortCL)
  • migrate tables with NextForm (or CoSort/SortCL)
  • generate test tables with RowGen (or CoSort/SortCL)

In the same GUI, the results of CoSort/SortCL, FieldShield and other IRI software operations can feed advanced data visualization plug-ins like BIRT:

There are many other third-party plug-ins for Eclipse, both free and commercial, which you can use in the IRI Workbench. To consider additional functionality you can load into this IDE, explore:
