Borland Brings Application Life Cycle & J2EE Interoperability to .NET

Borland Brings Application Life Cycle & J2EE Interoperability to .NET

(May 6, 2003) - Hoping to provide an alternative for C# developers to Microsoft's own Visual Studio .NET and Visual Studio .NET 2003 products, Borland has announced the mid-summer availability of their new C#Builder IDE and the future availability of their Janeva J2EE interoperability product. .NETDJ recently got the details on these new products in an interview with Michael Swindell, director of Developer Products and Technology for Borland and Jamie Sison, director of Business Development and Product Marketing in Borland's Enterprise Business unit.

The IDE will support the creation of all the major .NET project types, with an extra focus on application lifecycle management, via tight integration with Borland's other products, such as Together. It is expected to be available mid-summer and will ship in four versions: Personal ($69), Professional ($999), Enterprise ($1799), and Architect ($2499).

All product versions will ship with the Borland Data Provider for ADO.NET - a managed provider that allows access to multiple data sources (Oracle, SQL Server, etc.) via a common object model. Furthermore, the Enterprise and Architect versions of the IDE will ship with Borland's Enterprise Core Object libraries, which extend the .NET Framework to provide additional features such as automatic object versioning, persistence, etc.

Janeva is a design-time tool and run-time library designed to allow .NET applications to seamlessly interoperate with systems exposing back-end, server-based component functionality over IIOP. One example of this might be a Windows desktop client written in C# that serves as a front-end to a suite of C++ business objects running on another machine in a CORBA-based application server. Another example might be an ASP.NET application using Enterprise Java Beans (EJBs) running under WebLogic, WebSphere, or some other Java Application Server.

Pricing and availability for Janeva have not yet been announced. It is expected, however, that there will be both a one-time developer fee for use of the design-time tools, as well as a run-time royalty for each copy of the IIOP library that is redistributed.

In addition, Borland has licensed ComponentOne Studio Enterprise (.NET and ASP.NET) to be included in Borland® C#Builder™. Customers who purchase Borland C#Builder for the Microsoft® .NET Framework will receive a special integrated edition of ComponentOne Studio Enterprise that includes development and deployment licenses for all ComponentOne Studio Enterprise .NET (WinForms) and ASP.NET (WebForms) components. Registered users will have access to bonus software, which includes a complementary quarter of updates, ComponentOne Studio for ActiveX® and ComponentOne Doc-To-Help®.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
