Compuware Launches DevPartner Studio 7.1 Professional Edition

  • 25 September, 2003 10:22

<p>Latest Release of Developer Suite supports Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and includes new features for faster, error free developement</p>
<p>Sydney--September 25, 2003--Compuware Asia Pacific today announced the general availability of DevPartner Studio 7.1 Professional Edition. The comprehensive developer suite helps developers build more reliable, high-performance applications and components for the Microsoft .NET Framework and for native Windows, across physically distributed systems.
DevPartner Studio 7.1 now offers integration with Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Windows Server 2003 platforms, enabling developers using the latest Microsoft releases to build robust applications to meet critical business requirements.
“DevPartner Studio enables developers to work within Visual Studio .NET to assist in creating better applications,” said Prashant Sridharan, senior product manager of the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft. “This is the result of a longstanding technical relationship between Microsoft and Compuware that offers significant benefits to all Microsoft developers.”</p>
<p>New features available with DevPartner Studio 7.1 include memory analysis, functionality to apply security rules to code, automated runtime error analysis and integrated code call graphics.</p>
<p>•Memory analysis
Memory analysis incorporates intuitive graphs and data tables that show objects that are in memory, how much memory objects consume, references that keep objects in memory and methods that allocate objects. This creates an accurate profile of an application’s memory usage, which lets developers improve runtime performance and resource utilisation. Without it, developers would have to locate and address inefficient code through guesswork.</p>
<p>•Static code analysis with security rule functionality
With developers becoming increasingly focused on writing secure applications, DevPartner Studio static source code analysis now provides the functionality to apply security rules to code.</p>
<p>Static code analysis automatically finds common programming problems, and provides information on why the issue exists and how it can be resolved. Users can then select which security rules they would like to enforce, and tailor the review to their local preferences. The result is that the developers can identify and correct problems early in the development process, saving time and money.</p>
<p>•Integrated code call graphics
Developers can now visualize the execution of their applications through the use of call graphs. This enables them to quickly visualize the execution of their application, drill down to identify details, and immediately go to the source code to address the problem. With DevPartner performance analysis, developers can accurately measure the time it took for each line of code to execute and how many times each line of code was executed. The data can be viewed in a variety of ways, including interactive module lists, source code displays and visual call graphs. Developers can then quickly locate the slowest areas of the code that might be performance bottlenecks and focus their time addressing improvements to those specific sections of the code.</p>
<p>•Automated runtime error detection
Automated runtime error detection lets developers locate actual and potential deadlocks by providing a detailed analysis and history of why a deadlock occurred. It also shows where and how a deadlock might occur. Developers can use this information to quickly identify and resolve observed and potential threading deadlock issues.
“The earlier that problems are located and corrected in the development process, the less expensive it is to correct the error,” said Peter Pritchard, Regional Marketing Director, Compuware Asia Pacific. “DevPartner Studio enables developers to find errors early, diagnose them thoroughly and fix them fast, getting them back developing code and building and testing their applications as quickly as possible.”
DevPartner Studio 7.1 Professional Edition is currently available at a price of $2,900 per seat. Along with the general availability of DevPartner Studio 7.1 Professional Edition, DevPartner for Visual Basic 7.1, DevPartner for Visual C++ 7.1, BoundsChecker 7.1 and DevPartner Studio 7.1 Enterprise Edition are also generally available. Volume discounts are available.</p>
