Komodo IDE makes creating robust web apps fast and easy, with a rich feature set for client-side Ajax technologies such as CSS, HTML, JavaScript and XML, coupled with advanced support for dynamic languages such as Perl, PHP, Python, Ruby and Tcl.

"Over a year of development and quality assurance effort went into version 4.0 of Komodo, which added features that enable developers to create entire web applications—server, browser, and the HTTP conversation that connects them—within a single unified workspace," said Shane Caraveo, Komodo Dev Team Lead. "It's great to have our team's work on Komodo IDE 4.0 recognized by the eWEEK editors and the senior IT reader advisers to eWEEK."

The eWEEK Excellence Awards program provides enterprise professionals with a comprehensive benchmark for assessing a wide range of technology products and services. Evaluating the entries is a panel of experts including eWEEK Labs analysts and eWEEK Corporate Partners—senior enterprise IT professionals who act as reader representatives.

"We were very impressed by the quality of the entries we received this year, as well as by the number of entries—more than 800," said eWEEK Editorial Director Eric Lundquist. "It was a real challenge to choose the finalists because all of the entries reflect the tremendous effort the industry is making to respond to the increasing demands businesses are placing on technology."

Winners will be announced on June 11 at eWEEK.com, and will be published in a special report in the June 25th edition of eWEEK.
