AD/Cycle continues to grow and will soon spawn a sub-framework to cover redevelopment. Son of AD/Cycle will also be born as IBM Corp launches a separate but linked development environment specifically for AIX. These strategies were revealed by Bob Libutti, IBM Corp’s PRGS director of market strategy for worldwide marketing. Speaking at Sapiens third international user conference held in Brighton this week, Libutti said that IBM is building an architecture for redevelopment that is intended to define and determine proper semantics for the maintenance of applications. This architecture will form a sub-framework within AD/Cycle, explaining how to implement the maintenance box within the AD/Cycle diagram. It will be an evolving sub-framework and will involve new business partners. Its aim will be to help users forward and reverse engineer their code. As well as addressing the technical problems, it will also tackle the management issues involved. Libutti also explained that IBM is architecting its own software engineering environment for AIX Unix. This environment will have functional commonality with AD/Cycle via the Information Model, Repository and database. IBM is investing internally to build the database and repository for AIX. There will be some common tools supporting both the AIX and the AD/Cycle environments. When asked if IBM needed to provide a AD/Cycle II for AIX, which is ostensibly an open system, Libutti replied that the AD/Cycle paradigm put a direction in place to organise and work around, the same thing is needed in Unix.
