Collection Version 1.2. Application Builder Collection (ABC) is the first

clickable URL field, and added many features requested by customers.”

think potential customers will really have some fun trying it out. It’ll
really show them how valuable ABC is, how easy it is to use, and how many

Application Builder Collection is a set of User Interface elements,
reusable objects, and development applications designed to reduce the time
required to build feature-rich Cocoa applications. By reducing the time
needed to put together the basic elements of software, ABC allows a
software development company to focus on the features and design elements
that set its application apart from the competition.

ABC is an extension to the Cocoa development tools and kits provided by
Apple Computer. The Cocoa development environment has a rich set of objects
for writing powerful applications and ABC builds on this solid foundation
by leveraging existing classes, naming conventions, and design patterns.
ABC is designed to take full advantage of Mac OS X, including the smooth
look of the Aqua interface. ABC is easy for the novice or experienced Cocoa
programmer to understand and use.

Pricing for ABC is $199.99 for a single machine development license. No
deployment license or royalties are required. Quantity discounts are
available through our on-line store at Visit the Jiiva web
