Embarcadero to Ship Native Tools for Windows 8 and Mac


Embarcadero has announced that more than 10,000 components and tools now support its RAD Studio application development suite.

The firm is aiming to produce a combined offering of its own multiple platform technologies (spanning Windows, Mac, mobile, and cloud) with partner intelligence to provide both integrated and standalone developer tools, visual and non-visual components, libraries, source code, books, videos, database drivers, multi-tier architectures, reporting, and PDF components and generators.

A Developer Force Multiplier

The new RAD Studio XE3 (including Delphi XE3, C++Builder XE3, Embarcadero Prism, and HTML5 Builder) acts as what the company has billed as a "developer force multiplier", to ease the shift to Windows 8 as well as Mac code generation and multi-platform mobile development with HTML5.

"A vibrant technology partner ecosystem helps our customers be more successful," said Michael Swindell, Embarcadero senior vice president of marketing and product management. "This is especially important as developers face the growing challenge of multi-platform support."

NOTE: Three application development expert authors (Marco Cantu, Bob Swart, and Cary Jensen) are writing books that will provide instruction and deeper understanding of languages and developing solutions using RAD Studio XE3, including Delphi and C++Builder.
