Rogue Wave has merged its zApp code generator and DBFactory database access software to create a new application development tool, Object Factory, which is due to ship in May.
The object utilities company acquired DBFactory when it bought Inmark 18 months ago, but will no longer sell it as a separate offering.
Mike Bundred, Rogue Wave?s sales director, said: ?With Object Factory, we are trying to unify our zApp presentation layer with the DBFactory database access layer into one environment. Developers need to use third party tools to develop the object actually stored in the database. But, we?re hoping to provide the glue that enables them to pull data in and out of the database and that manipulates the object. Ours is a database-centric view of the world.?
The product will initially generate C++ code, but will support Java in its next release, scheduled to ship later this year. It will cost #1,195 for a single developer's licence.
Rogue Wave is also considering whether to bundle Object Factory with its DBTools and Tools connectivity class libraries at a reduced price.
But the company will include serialize.h++ in its upgrade CD, due to ship in May. This can take Java-based serialisation technology, represent Java objects as byte streams and then recreate them in C++. Version 2.0 of Jtools will also enable users to take C++ code and recreate it in Java.
Communication and integration between the Java and C++ worlds is to be a major marketing theme for Rogue Wave over the next year.
