The LBMS Inc Houston-based arm of Learmonth & Burchett Management Systems Plc has joined forces with Powersoft Corp, Burlington, Massachusetts to launch PowerProcess, an automated application development methodology tailored specifically for users of Powersoft’s PowerBuilder Enterprise client-server application development tool series. The announcement was made at Powersoft’s third annual international user meeting and training conference, which was held in Orlando, Florida. Extending the client-server development methodology provided by the Process Engineer product family, PowerProcess is designed to enhance the ability of development teams using PowerBuilder Enterprise to create and deploy enterprise-wide client-server applications. It is also claimed to promote cost-effective and consistent implementation of continuous process improvements by providing a fully integrated flexible approach for defining, deploying and measuring PowerBuilder Enterprise application development processes. It also automates PowerBuilder Enterprise graphical user interface building procedures by providing customisable structured techniques with mapped tool guidelines, task descriptions and dependency charting. It will include an automated testing facility via a joint development and marketing agreement between Learmonth and Powersoft partner SQA Inc, a provider of graphical interface automated test tools. Implemented through Process Engineer, SQA TeamTest for PowerBuilder is designed to guide PowerBuilder Enterprise users through the design and implementation of an automated testing strategy for client-server applications. PowerProcess provides on-line access to all PowerBuilder Enterprise methodology reference materials via an integrated hypertext help file, facilitating significant improvements in ease-of-use and accessibility, Learmonth says, with methodology references to the company’s client-server Systems Engineer software engineering product, delivering a complete enterprise-wide client-server development system. PowerProcess 1.0 is out next quarter, when pricing will be announced. Compatible with any network operating system that runs Windows 3.1 or MS-DOS 3.1 or greater, it needs a 25MHz 80386 with 4Mb and 6Mb hard disk space.
