C++ development tools company Rogue Wave Software Inc has announced the release of a C++ visual development tool for cross- system, database-independent applications and revealed its intentions for the future. The Corvallis, Oregon-based company says Object Factory 4.0 is the first tool to give developers full control over the generation of source code. Object Factory is a combination of Rogue Wave’s zApp Factory and DB Factory, both of which will cease to have a separate existence, and it is said to enable developers to adhere to corporate standards and extend code generation styles more easily. It runs on Windows NT, Windows 95, most Unix systems and OS/2. Established as a two man operation in 1989, Rogue Wave now employs some 220 people and has recently started an expansion plan involving the acquisitions of small companies that Rogue Wave’s Chief Executive Officer and co- founder, Tom Keffer believes will enhance the business. In October 1995 the company purchased Mountain View, California- based Inmark Development Corp and its zApp products. This year Rogue Wave acquired Frankfurt company Precision Software GmbH (CI No 3,107) as a means to expand into Europe, the company having offices in London and Amsterdam, as well as in Germany. Keffer said the company would be looking more towards Java in the future, but would not be rushing into Java, believing customers prefer evolution, not revolution. To that end, the company will be looking first at C++ and Java interoperability, and will continue to acquire companies to aid expansion, with plans to move into Asia in the future. Object Factory 4.0, out in May, is priced at $1,500.
