BW: ActiveState Selects Mozilla Platform for Komodo; Will Develop Multi-Language Cross-Platform IDE

May 24, 2000, 21:36 (1 Talkback[s])

"ActiveState, a leading supplier of products and services supporting open source software, announced today that the company will use Mozilla as a cross platform development framework for Komodo, its Perl and Python integrated development environment (IDE)."

"Komodo is a full-featured, cross-platform, and open-sourced professional development environment with characteristics not traditionally available with current scripting languages. Its timesaving features include online help (giving programmers quick access to definitions, discussions, and examples) and an interactive debugger (allowing programmers to see the program, even if it is running on a remote server, to facilitate remote debugging.)"

"We view Mozilla as a very exciting platform as it offers an open, modern component framework for cross-platform application development," stated Dr. David Ascher, Senior Developer and Mozilla Product Leader, ActiveState. "Our contributions to the Mozilla open source effort will start with adding Python and Perl bindings to XPCOM, Mozilla's component architecture. This change will open the Mozilla architecture and eventually make it available to Perl and Python programmers."
