Dear Gupta customer,
Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 is now ready for BETA testing
GUPTA included many new features requested by customers in the latest release of Team DeveloperTM. Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 delivers big improvements in XML support and Report Builder features.
Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 XML Support
Team Developer 2005.1 allows one to develop XML applications natively. An industry-standard, high speed built-in validating XML Parser is included to give an application the ability to read and write XML data. One can now parse, generate, manipulate and validate XML documents. The parser provides high performance, modularity, and scalability.
XML support is by way of an included library that exposes functionality through Functional Classes. This makes XML development using Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 very intuitive, as the same object-oriented techniques apply.
One can generate an XML document and schema from a SQL select statement, by making just one function call. This works against any database, mapping the column data types to the appropriate XML data types.
Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 supports XML Serialization & Deserialization. This is important when business applications need to save state information. This may be accomplished by choosing the UDV instance variables that need to be saved to XML format. One has the flexibility to even map SAL primitive data types to XML data types directly in the Outline.
Other Team DeveloperTM 2005.1 Enhancements
4 Ability to dynamically create Table Window columns of specific data type
4 The Find & Replace is available in the Outline context menu and as an IDE toolbar
