"Java developers are currently limited in their choice of development
platforms," said Bob Flury, Visix Senior Vice President of Worldwide Sales,
Marketing and Services. "Visix recognizes that people who develop on
Macintosh, OS/2 and UNIX need Java development solutions too. With the
addition of these new platforms, we address the needs of this community
that other vendors often ignore."
Vibe Enterprise enables Java developers to build powerful database
applications. Vibe Enterprise leverages Vibe DE, an Integrated Development
Environment (IDE) with a collection of powerful classes used to build and
deploy Java-based business solutions ranging from standalone departmental
applications to sophisticated distributed applications. Since March, over
100,000 copies of Vibe have been distributed worldwide.
The Vibe IDE includes an intuitive user interface, a compiler, debugger,
editing tools, interface construction tools and extensive runtime classes.
It enables developers to do rapid prototyping, immediate testing and
development of business-critical Java applications for deployment across
multiple desktop and server platforms. Vibe Enterprise adds additional
tools and classes for Forms and Fields, database connectivity and a
Graphical Query Builder.
Vibe is designed to maximize code reuse by leveraging Visix's mature
foundation classes, which also form the basis of Visix's flagship C/C++
product, the Galaxy Application Environment. To gain additional
productivity through reuse, Vibe enables organizations to incorporate their
investments in standard distributed object technologies through application
integration with ActiveX controls.
