BOOTH #1538
MARCH 1, 1999 Eiffel 4.3 for Linux Unveiled at LinuxWorld
Conference & Expo ISE Announces Object-Oriented Linux Product
for Component-baseddevelopment

SAN JOSE, CA – Designed for Linux software developers, ISE
Eiffel version 4.3 is now available from Interactive Software
Engineering Inc. (ISE), the company announced today at the
LinuxWorld Conference & Expo in San Jose.

Designed specifically for object-oriented component-based
development on Linux, the seamless Eiffel 4.3 environment has a
completely redesigned user interface, compilation speed increased
by a factor of 3 to 5, and language innovations including
iterators, tuples, active objects, creation expressions, generic
conformance, and creation of generics. Powerful garbage collection
and automatic error checking enable bug-free software development.
A new “DLL tool” enables developers to write an object-oriented
system and generate the result in the form of Dynamic Linked
Libraries.

Like all Eiffel products, version 4.3 offers cross-development
across all major platforms including Linux, Windows variants,
commercial Unix variants including Solaris, Cray, Silicon Graphics
, HP and Cray, as well as VMS. It interfaces seamlessly with
external code for C, C++, and Java. Also in Eiffel 4.3, EiffelCOM
now builds ActiveX controls. About Eiffel Eiffel is a method,
language and environment for enterprise applications emphasizing
quality and productivity. Based on the unique concept of Design by
Contract( developed by ISE, Eiffel enables the production of highly
reliable, bug-free systems through the inclusion of built-in
specifications, or “contracts”; contracts apply throughout the
software lifecycle as tools for analysis, design, documentation,
quality assurance, debugging and testing. ISE Eiffel is available
on Windows, Unix, Linux, and VMS, with full source-code
portability, providing a complete software development environment
with thousands of reusable components.
