JIEM 4.0 – developed through funding from the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is being released in Fall 2007. It is an evolution of the current web-based tool which has proven to be a popular and effective requirements-gathering resource. The release has been driven by consistent user feedback that has demonstrated the need for functionality that will soon be available in the new Eclipse-based JIEM tool. This functionality:
- Improves the Tools usability and efficiency
- Supports more rapid and inexpensive addition of new features in the future
- Requires no connection to the Internet, running locally on the users workstation
- Allows for easier sharing of exchange models with other users
- Provides more robust support for XML and integration with other modeling and development tools
- Allows considerable user customization of the tools look and feel
- Employs many "rich client" features that users experience in other modeling tools.
