“Additionally, ADC’s migration solution, Sabertooth, will become part of
the Composer product family and provide a comprehensive and native
conversion of Team Developer and SQLWindows applications to the .NET
framework for customers with a corporate mandate to move to Microsoft.
...
Mark Bygraves, Managing Director EMEA added, “... . I am confident that
this strategy will re-establish Team Developers position as the market
leading development tool of choice.””

Yeah, right Mark. Hmmm, migrate folks off of Team Developer and onto
.Net ( C#, etc ). Can someone exactly explain how anyone could believe
that this will “re-establish Team Developers position as the market
leading development tool of choice.”? Seems like the migration to a
.Net language will do nothing but put the final stake in TD's backside.
Of course, I am willing to listen to any rational argument as how the
migration off of TD will improve its position in the market place. I
just don't know how that would work............

Signed,

Confused

LOL. I believe the tool will be so good that people will (instead of
writing code directly in .Net) want to develop first in TD and then use the
tool to migrate their code into C# (.Net) etc.

Well a complete code migration to .Net will of course not be free,
albeit it will be quite expensive. This will probably only make sense
for a few large customers that have decided to do .Net and nothing else.

But the technology of Active Data Corporation will help us to provide a
Team Developer version on .Net which in turn will help many Team
Developer users to bring their applications to run on top of the .Net
framework without migrating code to a Microsoft language first.

So the approach is two pronged, those that are thinking of a code
conversion to .Net should talk to us and see what we can do for them and
compare that to other offers they might have. Those that want to have
their Team Developer code and applications running on .Net will get a
Team Developer .Net version and they will be able to continue to
leverage their investements into Team Developer code on the .Net platfrom.

Come to see us at the devcons we are doing all over the world this year.
We will explain the Team Developer roadmap in great detail there.

United States, Sacramento, CA, September 11 to 12, 2007
Brazil, date to follow
Germany, Munich, October 15 to 17, 2007
Sweden, Stockholm, October 11, 2007
France, Paris, October 19, 1007

Best regards,
Martin

I'm really looking forward to having something in my hands (and not only
roadmaps to read) !

Are we going to recive our 'late-summer' brand new version (5 or 5.1 or...
6) before the Devcon ?

Why do I fear that you will release the new version only after the devcon ?

And BTW what about people having their GLS expiring in August (or July) ?
Will they get the "Late-Summer" Version considering the fact that we did not
get any version 5 (neither in Q4.2006 nor Q1.2007 as promissed ~lol~) ?

See you in Munich maybe
Mirko

PS Isn't the oktoberfest finished the 15th of October ?

I will try to make a pretty dumb question:
Forget the migration.
Will it be able to use only TD code and create an ASP page that runs under
IIS?
Please, don't kill the messenger!

Yes, Sir that is the plan to support ASP.NET 2.0 that use TD code. Can't
give you more details yet. At devcon we will disclose more detailed
information.
