Borland plans suite of .net development tools

Borland Software has announced it will offer a complete suite of .net application development tools.

Borland Software has announced it will offer a complete suite of .net application development tools.

Borland also renamed Sidewinder, its .net IDE (intergrated development environment). It is now called Borland C#Builder, and is on track for a mid-year worldwide release, said Michael Swindell, Borland's director of product development for RAD (rapid application development) tools.

C#Builder is the core of Borland's .net portfolio, but it will be complemented by several other tools tailored for other phases of the development cycle, comprising a complete application lifecycle management lineup.

Several of those complementary products are already available, such as Borland's Optimizeit Profiler for the Microsoft .net Framework, a performance tuning tool released in February.

Also available now are Borland's .net-supporting CaliberRM requirements-management software and StarTeam collaboration and change management system.

Both products were picked up in Borland's January acquisition of Starbase.

Borland's Together line of design tools is another component of its planned .net portfolio. A tailored .net edition of Together will be released around the time C#Builder launches.

Borland aims to offer a suite of its .net tools, including its design, development, collaboration and optimisation products, by the end of the year.

Borland will fully support Windows Server 2003 as the deployment platform for .net applications, Swindell said. Borland's InterBase embedded database is Windows Server 2003-ready.

Pricing details on C#Builder will be available nearer to the product's launch.
