August 20, 1996


By CBR Staff Writer

As part of an ongoing strategy to move development off its proprietary systems and onto the desktop, Tandem Computers Inc has licensed Borland International Inc’s C++ development environment and will use it to create new integrated and standalone toolsets 1996 or early 1997. Currently, Tandem developers have few choices apart from tools which run on the company’s NonStop and Himalaya fault tolerant servers. The Cupertino, California-based firm’s Tandem Extensions for Borland C++ environment will allow developers to use Microsoft desktops. Asked why Tandem didn’t take development to the desktop a couple years ago, the firm said it was too busy concentrating on tools for Unix. The tools will ship first for Tandem’s Himalaya servers and later for its Microsoft Windows NT platforms. Tandem Extensions for Borland C++ roll out over nine months in three phases: first there will be extensions to Premia’s Codewright for Windows text editor and cross compilers for native C and C++ in October; second it’ll integrate the Visual Inspect debugger and PC Distributed Workbench Facility plus Intersolv’s PVCS source control manager in the second quarter of 1997; and third, it’ll add support for alternate source control managers, upgraded component tools and analysis and browsing tools in 1997 sometime.
