Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Integrated Computer Solutions Inc is now shipping version 3.0 of its Builder Xcessory Motif graphical user interface development system. The C++ environment includes Motif 1.2 and internationalisation support. As expected, Sun Microsystems Inc’s distribution arm, SunExpress, will carry BX 3.0 for Solaris. Integrated Computer says BX 3.0 will enable developers to migrate DevGuide OpenLook applications to Motif, modifying the interface along the way if required. An Open Look migration kit that translates XView source code into Motif is being bundled free of charge with BX 3.0 for Solaris until the end of January 1994 – thereafter, it costs $2,500 per licence. BX 3.0 is $3,200 on Solaris for Sparc systems and $2,500 on Solaris x86, or $1,000 for the Intel Corp version until the end of February next. Meanwhile according to US sources, Sun satellite SunPro is developing an object-oriented application development tool, code-named Helix, which will provide both Open Look and Motif graphical user interface building functions and database connectivity. The product, which will apparently run only on Sparcstations, has been demonstrated at a number of internal marketing meetings.
