DevSoft has released its Internet Commerce Kit (ICK) Version 1.0, a developer toolkit for secure access and manipulation of Internet data. The toolkit includes native Internet and intranet development components for development environments including Visual Basic and Visual C++. ICK includes HTTP components for transferring data and XML components for parsing and transformation of retrieved data. Standard FTP and HTTP controls are also included, as well as NetDial controls for managing dial-up connections. The controls use internally multithreading for all blocking calls, which DevSoft call avoids "freezing" during call waiting. The communication components use Microsoft's Win32 Internet library internally. All components have graphical interfaces, help files and sample applications. ICK is available immediately.
