POWERBUILDER IS NOW UP UNDER SOLARIS, AND POWERSOFT OFFERS S-DESIGNER MODELLING TOOL

By CBR Staff Writer

Powersoft Corp, based in Concord, Massachusetts, has done an implementation of its PowerBuilder client-server development tool for Unix and released it intially for SunSoft Inc’s Solaris. Powersoft and Sun will co-market PowerBuilder for Unix through joint sales and marketing. It will also be sold through 300 third-party vendors and resellers. PowerBuilder for Solaris costs from $3,300 and is shipping now. Meanwhile, Powersoft is shipping S-Designor for PowerBuilder version 4.2.1, a new data modelling tool taken from the company’s acquisition of SDP SA, Suresnes, France. PowerBuilder version 4.2.1 includes PB-Gen, a PowerBuilder application generator that enables users to generate PowerBuilder applications with windows, DataWindow objects and menus. Users can make customised templates that define how elements within S-Designor, such as tables and views, are used to generate PowerBuilder DataWindow objects, windows and menus. These templates can inherit objects from PowerBuilder class libraries. S-Designor is available immediately, and it costs $2,800 until December 30, when it will go up to $3,500. S/Designor for PowerBuilder will be sold by Powersoft; a stand-alone version will be sold by SDP.
