ActiveDeveloper v2.17 — IDE Released for MacOS X 10.3 and 10.2

May 2004 — Today InterACTIVE-Technology released ActiveDeveloper version
2.17 for MacOS X 10.3 and 10.2 – our Runtime Objective-C & C IDE, JIT
Compiler and Debugger — supporting Cocoa, WebKit and QuickTime.

With its “Develop & Continue” ActiveDeveloper takes an Object and
Development oriented approach to merging Objective-C Development and
Debugging into ONE single combined activity – as opposed to the more
Debugging and C stack level oriented approach taken in Xcode.

ActiveDeveloper does this by giving you new and LIVE Workspace Editor,
Class Editor and Object Browser and object level operations like Evaluate,
Display and Inspect known from IDE’s in the Smalltalk roots of the
Objective-C language.

ActiveDeveloper version 2.17 improves integration into the Xcode build
system, and allows you to work in concert with Xcode similar to how it has
worked in concert with Project Builder for the last couple of years.

ActiveDeveloper 2.17 works with “Fix & Continue” and “ZeroLink” options
turned both ON and OFF – just as you like. But since “ZeroLink” disables
you to spread Development builds in your working enviromnent, giving them
out to colleagues or beta testers – we tend to advice ActiveDeveloper users
against using “ZeroLink” – because ActiveDeveloper gives you the same
benefits – without the downsides …

The ActiveDeveloper IDE cuts your API learning curve and scales to
Development of any size Project. With ActiveDeveloper you get an
Incremental Objective-C IDE that brings you a lot closer to the Objects you
work with …

All this makes ActiveDeveloper version 2.17 the best version ever to
evaluate the product.

– Build and re-build your Apps – with incremental JIT

– Edit-compile-debug cycles in 1-2 seconds
