Page 1 of 1
Sybase, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of its distributed Web development tools--PowerBuilder 6.5, the leading enterprise development tool, and PowerJ 2.5, a Java-based enterprise development tool.
These new releases are key components of the Enterprise Application Studio, an integrated product set and new Sybase offering. Sybase Enterprise Application Server--also introduced today--is a new scalable deployment platform that will be part of the Enterprise Application Studio.
A component of PowerBuilder 6.5, Sybase said the Web Deployment Kit is a new "turnkey solution" that enables immediate deployment of PowerBuilder applications to the Web without requiring re-coding or re-development. The Web Deployment Kit for PowerBuilder reduces total cost of deployment and management of applications by enabling server-based, centralized distribution and administration, according to Sybase.
The tool makes it possible to run unmodified Windows applications from any computer with a Java Virtual Machine. Applications running on a Windows NT server can be deployed across networks, including the Internet and company intranets, to a number of different client operating systems.
For Java developers, PowerJ 2.5 is an enterprise development tool for building distributed, Web applications. New features of PowerJ 2.5 include:
- WYSIWYG HTML editing
- Web site management
- Web application generation
- Physical data modeling
- Support for Java Development Kit (JDK) 1.1.6 and easy JDK switching
- Integrated support for Java Foundation classes (JFC), including Swing components
