Xsemble lets you keep the design artifacts and code in your local file system and processes them locally. For this reason, the Xsemble product suite is made up of three desktop applications. They use the services of Xsemble cloud in the background. These desktop applications are created with Java technology, and work on a wide range of platforms that support Java (such as Windows, Linux, MacOS and others).

Developer's Workbench
Assembler's Workbench
Monitoring Workbench

to monitor deployed applications visually

All your code and supporting artefacts are stored within your file system, and may be version controlled using a version control system such as git. They are processed locally by the Xsemble desktop applications.

The below table describes how these tools are used in the various phases of the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC).

To learn more, use the documentation that comes bundled with Xsemble:

  1. User Guide – contains easy-to-follow tutorials to gain the understanding
  2. Reference Manual – contains detailed description of each concept and UI item

To access the documentation, open any of the three workbenches and press F1.

You will need to download and install Xsemble before that. Click here to do that.
