BLOOMFIELD, NJ – September 9, 2010 – Surround Technologies announces two new versions of Accelerator Development solutions; Accelerator for .Net Version 2.0; Accelerator for Visual LANSA Version 8.0. The Surround Accelerator™ Development Solutions provide developers with a more productive development environment that produces high-quality, open applications, while accelerating the adoption of new technologies for both the developers and the organization. General Availability for the new versions will be September of 2010.
Accelerator for .Net, Version 2.0
“Accelerator for .Net has made remarkable strides these last two years, and we have been aggressively implementing our roadmap to be in synchronization with the Microsoft roadmap for Cloud Computing.” says Lee Paul, CEO of Surround Technologies. “Version 2.0 is even more flexible than versions 1.x which could be used in a pure Microsoft environment; in conjunction with Accelerator for Visual LANSA; and as part of the Look Software re:new product. Version 2.0 also has Azure capabilities or can be used in a mixed technology environment including technologies reliant on Microsoft, Linux, IBM Power and Oracle.”
Version 2.0 of Accelerator for .Net has full support for .Net 4.0, Visual Studio 2010, Silverlight 4.0. Other features include increased support for Windows Communication Foundation; and Windows Azure. Currently the Data Access Layer has support for the databases SQL Server, DB2 for i.
Accelerator for LANSA Version 8.0
"Our Client base has rewarded us with loyalty that I think that comes from consistently delivering to their expectations” Lee Paul, CEO of Surround Technologies, offers, “ But what’s more, the IBM System i world loves extending the useful life of applications and the positive ROI impact that has for their organizations. We continue to focus on the future and support the legacy. To that end, this release has features supporting more and more integration, improved use of SQL in IBM “i”, and memory utilization.”
Version 8.0 of Accelerator for Visual LANSA is a capstone release following on the heels of the significant releases of the last two years, notably 7.6 and 7.8. Accelerator has been tested and certified to work with Visual LANSA Version 12 (as of Version 7.8.) Continued integration with the powerful NewLook SOArchitect integration allows flexible integration with your modernized green screens anywhere in tour application processes. Business Object XML integration has had successful deployments in eCommerce sites, and it also been proven in n-tier integration installations. Additional improvements to Microsoft Office integration continue to be one of the most popular and most used features.
Because Accelerator for Visual LANSA generates and supports n-tier, SOA patterns, it also works with Accelerator for .Net. As a result many of the Version 2.0 Accelerator for .Net features can be used with Version 8.0 Accelerator for Visual LANSA.
