development environment

In computer program and software product development, the development environment is the set of processes and programming tools used to create the program or software product.

In computer program and software product development, the development environment is the set of processes and programming tools used to create the program or software product. The term may sometimes also imply the physical environment. An integrated development environment is one in which the processes and tools are coordinated to provide developers an orderly interface to and convenient view of the development process (or at least the processes of writing code, testing it, and packaging it for use). An example of an IDE product is Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET. The term computer-assisted software environment (CASE) is generally used to describe a set of tools and practices that facilitate management of a software development project.
