As an application developer, InterSystems gives you multiple options. You can
Develop using a number of external languages supported by InterSystems IRIS®. Code written in an external language interacts with the InterSystems IRIS kernel using a driver in an InterSystems IRIS software development kit (SDK).
Develop using several embedded languages that are part of the InterSystems IRIS kernel. Code written in an embedded language executes as an InterSystems IRIS process.
Connect your code to InterSystems IRIS databases using several different technologies.
InterSystems SQL Gateway
Develop code on InterSystems IRIS using the IDE of your choice.
For an overview of all IDEs that can be used with InterSystems IRIS and instructions for connecting each to an InterSystems IRIS instance, see InterSystems IRIS Basics: Connecting an IDE.
