Sybase?s PowerSoft unit will announce in March that its entire development tools family will be based on a common repository to facilitate object reuseability and interoperability.
This means that such tools as Powerbuilder, Optima++ and S-Designor will each incorporate a common repository for local development, but they will also be able to access a separate external repository for use at the corporate level.
The repositories will also come with an object browser so that programmers can locate in which repository a given object is stored, and where.
Peter Kumik, Sybase?s product marketing manager, said: ?This is a logical progression of where we are today. Sybase has been under a lot of pressure to add additional functionality to its products, driven largely by the Internet. The aim of the common repository is to enable users to share and reuse interoperable objects that are written to different standards.?
He added that the repository could store Java Beans, Active X, C++ and Corba-compliant objects, but that packaging and pricing had not yet been decided.
