IBM Corp’s Compagnie General d’Informatique SA has killed off future development of its PAC/CS object-oriented application development tool, and will instead link its PACBase client-server development environment to its parent’s VisualAge tool set. The firm said continued development of its own graphical tools is unnecessary given the expansion of IBM’s object tool program. IBM will migrate the PAC/CS information model and some communications techniques to VisualAge. It is set to integrate VisualAge with the VisualGen class libraries this summer. PAC/CS was introduced last September as the final element in CGI’s client-server development program and includes a PAC/Repository for re-using object components. It is currently working to enable IBM TeamConnection and PACbase developers to share data, objects and code, between PAC/Repository and the TeamConnection repository as a prelude to migrating users off PAC/Repository in the long term. IBM bought CGI in 1993 for $333m.
