What's up with CTD2.1

Hi all (and specifically, people at Gupta),

On the Centura User Group (CUG) UK Web Site I found a link to a page
titled "What is new in Centura Team Developer 2.1". There's nothing to be
found on the guptaworldwide site about CTD2.1. Do the Brits know
something the rest of the world doesn't?

This is what we know:

CTD 2.1 to be released some time next month. The main enhancement is
performance increases, at the CUG meeting Centura claimed its 3 times faster
than CTD2000. I guess we'll just have to see....

I did participate in the closed beta program of CTD 2.1 and I can tell you
the following:

1. It had been released to manufacturing this week so it should start
shipping in a couple of weeks.

2. It definitely is three times faster than CTD2000 generally. On some real
life code (for example doing intensive database operations against Oracle) I
measured five times improvement against CTD2000 - so based on my tests and
experience with real life code its very close to the speed of CTD1.5.1.
Running the CTDPerformanceTester from the newsgroups shows the same results
(few percentage slower than 1.5.1). However I have to say that some code
only sees two times performances increase compared to CTD2000.

3. It seems to be stable - we are using it for internal development on
medium sized code running against Oracle and did't see any problems yet!
Code which is running well on CTD2000PTF3PR3 is running well on CTD 2.1 with
much better performance!

Lets see what usage on broad basis shows but it seems to be a big step in
the right direction.

BTW: Live debugging of COM+ objects (even used from ASP) also is part of
CTD2.1.

We found a HUGE performance gain in PTF3PR3. You are saying that 2.1 is
faster still?? That would be great news.
Another any other new features?

Thanks

My numbers (2-3 times performance gain) are compared between CTD2000PTF3PR3
and CTD2.1.

PTF3PR3 fixed performance issues regarding UDV arrays AFAIK. CTD2.1 fixes
the general performance issues.

Hello Martin,

Thats very good news . Whatever is done on improving the technical part of
CTD, I really feel there is no improvement in the documentation part. Gupta
people should come with good documentation and real time samples atleast for
advanced concepts. For a person to start with COM in CTD is really painful
task. One cannot really do 50% programming by looking at documentation and
samples provided.

Seshu.
