TEXAS LICENSES ITS OWN REPOSITORY BACK FROM MICROSOFT

By CBR Staff Writer

Having just been sold off to Sterling Software Inc (CI No 3,145), Texas Instruments Software told the world at Tuesday’s Microsoft Corp scalability day that it will license the fabled, long- awaited Microsoft Repository, which Texas helped to design in the first place. Used in conjunction with Texas Instruments Software’s Composer enterprise, component-based development environments, the repository is said to enable developers to create and reuse interoperable components to build enterprise applications. Texas apparently had input into the Universal Modeling Language element of the Repository, but Microsoft maintained the rights for it, hence the licensing deal. The companies claim more than 30 vendors are taking advantage of the open repository interfaces to support component re-use, although one has to wonder whether the Repository will ever finally see the light of day.
