Development tools

The tools needed to implement solutions depend on the implementation language. In either case you will need an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that suits the requirements of the specific language, e.g. VS Code for TypeScript development or Eclipse for Java development.


We recommend using the latest version of the tools unless specified otherwise. Additionally, we do not recommend using GitBash on Windows since it doesn't mask the password that is entered by the user.

Currently, only Node.js 20 from version 20.11.1 is supported to install Solution CLI and execute npm commands.
