Sun And Apple Announce Alliance

Apple and Sun are joining together in a far-reaching strategic alliance. It is their common goal to provide powerful, flexible and media-rich Internet solutions that combine Sun’s and Apple’s expertise.

They will work together with Sun to leverage the traditional strengths of their respective companies - Sun’s leadership position in the enterprise Internet/intranet server area and their industry-leading Java technologies, and Apple’s legacy in ease of use and multimedia technologies, with QuickTime, the OpenDoc developer framework and Open Transport networking technology.

Sun and Apple will enhance their operating environments to provide a seamless bridge between Sun Solaris servers and Mac OS clients. This means customers will be able to tap into powerful Solaris-based environments from Macintosh clients, realizing the benefits of robust, high-performance networking with full connectivity, advanced network management and complete network security.

Apple will work together with Sun to develop cost-effective, cross-platform and customizable application solutions by enhancing the integration of OpenDoc and Java Beans, making compound document development easier. Sun will enhance JavaMedia to fully support QuickTime

Metrowerks Launches New CodeWarrior 10

New CodeWarrior IDE improves overall ease-of-use, offers Direct-to-SOM support and new visual support for Java. CodeWarrior Gold provides support for software development in four different programming languages (C/C++, Object Pascal and Java™), for five different operating systems (Mac™ OS, Windows® 95/NT, Be OS™, Magic Cap™ and PowerTV™ OS), and four different microprocessors (68K, PowerPC™, X86, MIPS®), all from one intuitive development environment.

Two new features have been added in Version 10 that make developing with Java considerably easier. A new release of Metrowerks Constructor now allows for visual development of graphical user interfaces, or GUIs, with Java. The applet viewer is now conveniently supported from within the IDE so users can run HTML files without opening a separate application.

Other new features in the Java tools include version 1.0.2 of the JDK from Sun Microsystems®, a new optimize option in the Java compiler, a new Java utility called CodeWrangler, which allows developers to view and alter the content of uncompressed Java zip files, disassembly support in the IDE, plus “thrill-seeker” (or alpha) versions of Metrowerks’ Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler and a new native Java compiler.

C/C+ compilers now offer support for Direct-To-SOM language extensions for OpenDoc development, and a stable debugger for Copland, Apple’s version 8 of the Mac OS, is also included. CodeWarrior Gold 10 is priced at $399 and is available through DevDepot (800) MACDEV-1 or from Metrowerks at (800) 377-5416.

Fantasm V4.10 and PowerFantasm V4.10

Lightsoft announces the release of both Fantasm and PowerFantasm versions 4.10. PowerFantasm and Fantasm are complete assembly language development systems for Macintosh™ computers.

Two versions are available. Fantasm and PowerFantasm. Fantasm will assemble 68k assembly language, and PowerFantasm assembles both 68k and PowerPC assembly language.

PowerFantasm assembles for all known 68k and PowerPC processors (including 64 bit instructions), and outputs standard Macintosh applications. The PowerPC assembler handles all 32 bit “extended” instructions as defined in the architecture.

PowerFantasm runs in two distinct modes. In Stand Alone mode, Fantasm can output code to RAM for testing, or can create a complete double clickable native application on disk. Build mode uses a linker.

Eddie is Lightsofts’ integrated editor designed specifically for programming. Eddie is written in 100% machine code (as is Fantasm) for exceptional speed and responsiveness. Eddie has been written from scratch and does not rely on third party code to break the 32k limit.

Fantasm V4.1 requires System 7, a Mac with at least an 020 processor and will run in a minimum of 1 Meg of RAM.

New SentinelWizard GUI

Rainbow Technologies, Inc. announced the SentinelWizard GUI (graphical user interface). The SentinelWizard, part of the latest software release for the SentinelSuperPro, guides developers in easily implementing and integrating advanced protection into their SentinelSuperPro key.

SentinelWizard makes implementing SentinelSuperPro software protection easy. SentinelWizard automatically programs their SentinelSuperPro key and generates pseudo code to complete the protection process.

WebSiphon Web-Based Scripting Tool

Purity Software, Inc. announced that it is shipping WebSiphon, its web-based scripting tool for Macintosh computers. WebSiphon is one of the most anticipated new CGI (Common Gateway Interface) products for Macintosh web masters delivering a complete authoring tool for revolutionary sites.

In addition, WebSiphon includes Purity’s database server, Verona, a low overhead, flat-file database server created specifically for use on the Internet. Verona is fully multi-threaded allowing multiple concurrent operations among many databases being served on the web. Unlike other current authoring solutions offered to Mac OS web masters, WebSiphon completely integrates the SiphonScript language within the HTML page giving the user the power of a fully featured language. SiphonScript supports variables, conditional statements, powerful looping statements, built-in functions, forms processing, and more. An extensive built-in library offers 79 functions users may choose from to aid in creating their site.

WebSiphon requires an Apple Macintosh computer running System 7.5 or higher, 1 MB RAM for WebSiphon, and a Macintosh web server that supports “sdoc” CGI AppleEvents. For database functionality, Verona requires an additional 1MB of RAM. WebSiphon has been tested and is fully compatible with the following web servers: Boulevard and Web For One by ResNova; WebSTAR by StarNine Technologies, a division of Quarterdeck; NetPresenz by Peter Lewis; WebCenter by Chris Hawk; and Sonic Systems’ forthcoming SonicWeb.

WebSiphon has a MSRP of $495, which includes the flat-file database server Verona (available separately for $195).
