VisualAge for Java was the IBM Java development platform that was available for Windows and OS/2, the original version was based around the same Smalltalk based development environment as the rest of the development tools in the VisualAge family but by version 3 it had become mostly native Java code. Released in several languages like English, Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish.

Large portions of VisualAge for Java were open sourced by IBM and live on as the Eclipse project.
