Texas Instruments Inc has released the third generation of Composer, its software engineering component tool set for building, deploying and re-using client-server business applications. Version 3.0 has added support for HP-UX workstations and client systems including an Ada graphical user interface, DB2 and OpenIngres support; a Unix transaction processing emulator for interfacing between Unix servers, and Windows and NT clients; and Internet access to clients. Version 3.0 has a client-server encyclopaedia application programming interface that enables users to read schema, and model and deploy data. This version also has expanded Version Control capabilities, enabling development workgroups to work in any combination of Unix, VMS, OS/2 and Windows NT environments. It features an enhanced graphical user interface with multimedia and sound support, customisable message dialogues, and direct access to operating system specific files. Previously it supported Solaris, AIX/6000, OS/2, and Windows NT, 3.1 and Windows95 workstations; now it has support for application development under HP-UX, Sinix, Solaris, most Unix versions of Oracle7, AIX, Tandem SQL, OpenVMS, MVS and OS/2 DB2. It also supports HP-UX, Solaris, AT&T, Digital Unix, RS/6000, Windows and Dynix.ptx client-servers. Composer 3.0 tags start at $14,000 to $24,000.
