Metrowerks, maker of the Mac development environment Code Warrior, is to license Netmanage's Winsock software development kit for Mac OS. The SDK will be incorporated in Code Warrior, offering developers a platform to create Intranet applications that span PC and Mac desktops.
"Providing the Winsock SDK as part of the Code Warrior development package allows our cross-platform developers to eliminate the network application programming interface as an area of concern," said Greg Galanos, president of Metrowerks.
Netmanage's Winsock SDK has been licensed by a range of software developers to provide tools that span Mac and Windows TCP/IP. "We consider the Winsock SDK an important component supporting our Open Transport initiative," commented Ike Nassi, senior vice president at Apple.
Metrowerks has set up shop on the basis of making the Mac a key development environment for Internet applications. The Netmanage SDK is available now as part of its Code Warrior 10 product, or can be ordered separately from Netmanage for #250. The run time components for applications built using the SDK can be distributed royalty-free,
The Winsock SDK provides developers of MacOS Intranet applications a network application programming interface compliant with Winsock 1.1. This enables developers to create software concurrently for Mac and Windows.
