Select Software Tools has launched the full version of Component Manager, which it claims is the only tool of its kind on the market to focus entirely on providing an industry standard approach to managing distributed component-based development.
Component Manager provides developers with a tool for storing, cataloguing, searching and retrieving components from multiple repositories.
It supports access from within an organisation and external access over the web.
The company claims that the new tool is designed to maximise reuse of existing components and manage the distribution of new and updated components.
Select also says that Component Manager can help reduce duplication of development efforts.
Select says that the most significant enhancement to the product is support for enterprise repositories. The previous version only supported the Microsoft repository which Paul Cunningham, director of product marketing at Select, said was "relatively immature technology".
Repository support has now been extended to include support for the SoftLab Enabler Repository and, through an agreement with UniSys, the UREP repository.
According to Select, this allows Component Manager to store heterogeneous components including DCOM, ActiveX, Corba and Java and JavaBeans components.
Component Manager is shipping now and is priced at #1,000 per developer seat.
