Provides Ideal way to Build Reusable, Business Critical Systems for Unix
Santa Barbara, California - (December 18, 2002) - Eiffel Software today announced the release of EiffelStudioTM 5.2 for Unix. EiffelStudio is the flagship product of the company that created the Eiffel Development FrameworkTM, a simple and powerful system for developing robust, scalable, reusable software applications.
Widely regarded as a thorough, well-planned programming language, the Eiffel language serves as the foundation for the EiffelStudio development environment. Because of the efficiency of the language and the powerful tools in the environment, EiffelStudio's users are demonstrating that they can produce 2 to as much as 10 times as much usable software in the same amount of time as can be achieved using other popular languages. Eiffel has thus gained specific prominence in recent years among developers and design team leaders in challenging enterprise environments, as well as among independent development teams who create high-quality reusable applications for smaller- to medium- sized companies.
"EiffelStudio 5.2 is a great leap forward for EiffelStudio, and multiplatform development in general" stated Chris Ambarian, Exec VP of Sales and Marketing for Eiffel Software. "The future of software development is leading us toward an open environment where developers need to write and run applications on multiple platforms and systems With EiffelStudio, developers and architects can today solve a myriad of challenging situations involving multiple languages and multiple platforms.
Because of its openness developing with EiffelStudio 5.2 is a great way to create robust, reusable objects and libraries that can run on a wide variety of platforms including Unix, Linux, VMS, Windows and embedded systems. Eiffel's Design by ContractTM feature makes it especially easy to create code that developers can safely, reliably use to create business-critical applications.
