IBM Visual Age for Java Enterprise Edition.

Purchased the original version 1 for $3000.00
Later as as  Program Choice member received version 3.02

This was a Java 1.1 platform development system written fully in Small Talk with an "internal" java.
Parts of 1.3 were included but new updated as Windows and Linux were.

Replaced with WebSphere which later had parts included in Eclipse.

NONE are as good as Visual Age for Java.

I still program with Visual Age and have found ways to use it for current development.

While it was already released as a binary for free, I'd love it if the source code to Innoval's Post Road Mailer were released.

I recently contacted the people of CadWare about open sourcing BlueCad for OS/2.

They told me that there is not interest on open source it, not even changing its brand name. (Reply by Alberto Barbadoro).

But he told me that BlueCad 1.0 for OS/2 is available for free download on their site (Italian) with a free online registration:
http://www.bluecad.eu/dnnsite/it-it/download/prodottigratuiti.aspx

I just checked and it is available for download version 1.008 with an extra 1.010 patch in English, German and Italian.

Sorry if it is old news, but at least BlueCAD is freeware.

If you can find the parties involved it may be possible... Apparently the source code was offered but noone was interested, by the time I had found out about it years later I wasn't able to track anyone down, though I admit I was not as persistent as I could have been.
