Traditional techniques for multi-platform development have either relied on platform abstraction (for example, through the use of virtual machines), or employing translation tools once the application or component has been created for one platform. In some cases platform abstraction is not practical, and the use of batch-style translation has its own drawbacks. This article describes the use of projects in an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) which are capable of support development to multiple platforms simultaneously.
