Title: Sharable development environment bookmarks for functional/data flow

Abstract: An embodiment of the invention provides relative bookmarks that are sharable between developers engaged in product development utilizing integrated design environment applications. The relative bookmarks are sharable in that they can be exported, imported, activated and deactivated. The relative bookmarks are relative in that they do not rely on the original code line and contain at least function and/or data flow information, facilitating quick identification of relevant lines of code that have been previously bookmarked. The relative bookmarks can also be utilized to insert breakpoints.
