|Embarcadero Developer Tools Drive Windows 8 Style Tablet UIs and Retina-ready OS X Applications from One Codebase|
Delphi® XE3 and C++Builder® XE3 improve productivity up to 5x delivering latest Windows and Mac standards on PCs, Macs, Slates, and Surface Pro devices
Maidenhead, U.K. – Sept. 4, 2012 —Embarcadero Technologies today announced a suite of major new releases empowering developers to rapidly build, migrate and maintain single codebase native applications for Windows 8 and Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Embarcadero’s new developer tools, Delphi® XE3, C++Builder® XE3, and RAD Studio XE3, help enterprises support the rapidly growing heterogeneous client environment.
With buyers increasingly choosing Win/Mac applications over Windows only products, Embarcadero’s new tools also create an opportunity for ISVs to sell to new users in a growing market as well as being more competitive in the Windows packaged software space. Delphi XE3 and C++Builder XE3, both included in RAD Studio XE3, enable developers to build native PC and Slate/Surface Pro tablet applications with the Windows 8 UI style widely known as “Metro” as well as Retina-ready native OS X Mountain Lion applications for Apple’s Mac hardware line.
“Today’s mixed Windows and Mac environment poses unparalleled opportunities for ISVs and enterprises,” said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and product management at Embarcadero. “Time pressure and R&D costs are the real barriers to reaping the Win/Mac benefits. Delphi XE3 and C++Builder XE3 enable development teams to code a project once, and deliver true native user experiences across multiple Mac and Windows OS versions and form factors.”
Fastest Path to Windows
The new “Metropolis UI” toolset enables developers to easily build new applications or migrate existing applications to the Windows 8 UI style with integrated support for touch, Live Tiles and tablet device sensors. The tools enable easy migration of legacy Windows apps and applications with the new Windows 8 UI style that can be deployed across Windows versions from XP to Windows 8, including x86 based Surface Pro and Slate tablets.
Multiple Platforms From a Single Codebase
Visually Connect to Any Data
Delphi, C++Builder, and RAD Studio
C++Builder is a rapid C/C++ development solution that enables Delphi-like productivity, with standards based C/C++ coding for both Windows and Mac OS X. Time consuming and repetitive code such as UI and data access are encapsulated into visual components, so developers can focus on coding the business value in standards based C/C++ leveraging existing ANSI/ISO C/C++ source code and libraries.
