About the Topic

The generic term "development tool" refers to software applications or helper programs that provide comprehensive or specific facilities to computer programmers for software development. In the context of Intershop software, the development tools include

Intershop Studio

Intershop Studio is the main development tool for Intershop products and services like Intershop 7 and Intershop Commerce Management. It is an integrated development environment based on IBM's Eclipse platform (see http://www.eclipse.org), which helps developers to create, modify, debug, build, and test cartridges or individual programming artifacts.

Development Cartridges

Intershop provides several development tools packaged in cartridges. Once integrated into the development environment, these development cartridges allow to:

  • dev_organizationinfo: explore the organization structure of an Intershop 7/Intershop Commerce Management installation
  • dev_basketinfo: view all available basket calculation data that is created by a checkout process of a single session
  • dev_lilith: view log messages from different sources in a single UI and apply filters to search for log events that match certain criteria
  • dev_apiinfo: view all available basket and order calculation data accessible via the new payment API; extendable for custom API implementations
