Original Press Release:
REAL Software Announces REALbasic 2008 Release 1; Will Support Introspection
Development language will support introspection; Delivering on the most requested enhancement from users
AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 15 /- REAL Software, maker of REALbasic, a cross-platform development environment for Windows, Mac and Linux developers, will announce REALbasic 2008 Release 1 at the Macworld Expo in San Francisco. The latest version will include introspection, which has been the most highly requested feature from the user community in recent years.
"Adding introspection to our object-oriented language provides developers with a powerful tool," stated Geoff Perlman, President and CEO of REAL Software. "With this new capability our users will be more productive and their applications will be more dynamic and adaptable."
In computer programming, introspection refers to the ability to examine something (an object) to determine what it is, what it knows, and what it is capable of doing. Introspection gives programmers a great deal of flexibility and control. This technology enables the development of powerful dynamic programming features like serialization of object storing, remote method invocation for data sharing and data binding for consistency when data values change.
"Long requested by developers, introspection is a powerful addition to the REALbasic language," commented Charles Yeomans, a software developer and REALbasic user. "I write a lot of database-related code, and introspection is going to make my job easier."
The release will also contain 39 minor improvements and two additional language features.
REALbasic 2008 Release 1 will be available for download in February at www.realsoftware.com/download.
