Bristol announces Wind/U 5.0, its Windows and Unix cross-platform software.
Bristol Technology Inc. on Thursday announced Wind/U 5.0, its Windows and Unix cross-platform software.
Wind/U 5.0 features tight integration with Tributary, a companion product from Bristol that enables developers to develop for both Windows and Unix platforms using Microsoft Visual Studio
, officials of the Danbury, Conn., company said.
Bristol officials said Tributary extends the Visual Studio development environment, which has a large following, by leveraging existing tools knowledge and investment, to develop or modify applications for non-Windows platforms.
In essence, Wind/U enables software developers to use a single source code base for porting Windows applications to Unix. The new version includes updates to current versions of the Hewlett-Packard Co.s HP-UX, IBMs AIX, Sun Microsystems Inc.s Solaris and the Red Hat Linux operating systems and compilers, as well as the Motif 2.1 environment, the company said.
