Riverton Riverton is the name of several places:
Publicly accessible computer network connecting many smaller networks from around the world. It grew out of a U.S. Defense Department program called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network), established in 1969 with connections between computers at the business applications, today introduced HOW 3.0. Added support for language cartridges
"HOW 3.0 completes our original vision for this product," said Bob Gleason, president and chief executive officer of Riverton Software. "By supporting new development in Java, Visual Basic or PowerBuilder, and enabling easy migration from legacy client/server applications to Internet application, Riverton puts the development of component-based Web applications within easy reach of business application developers."
HOW 3.0: Migrating legacy client/server systems to the Web
HOW 3.0 has been redesigned to recognize and work with objects and components in Java, Visual Basic and PowerBuilder, and to generate components to any or all of these platforms for which a licensed language cartridge (1) See phono cartridge.
(2) A removable storage module that contains magnetic disks, optical discs, magnetic tape or memory chips. Cartridges are inserted into slots in the drive, printer or computer. is installed. These two capabilities make it possible for developers to model application components once, and then generate them to any HOW-supported platform. Alternatively, developers are enabled to import components from legacy or HOW-generated applications, re-engineer them and regenerate re·gen·er·ate

HOW 3.0 support in the Team Repository for both concurrent access The ability to gain admittance to a system or component by more than one user or process. For example, concurrent access to a computer means multiple users are interacting with the system simultaneously. and exclusive access strengthens team development. Concurrent access enables simultaneous use for all Team Repository users with control over access down to the individual component level. Exclusive access lets an administrator perform tasks on the repository while no other user is logged on. Configuration Management tool support in the Team Repository, including interfaces to Microsoft Visual SourceSafe Microsoft Visual SourceSafe (VSS) is a source control software package oriented towards smaller software development projects. Overview
SourceSafe was created by a company called One Tree Software. The first version known was 3. , Sybase ObjectCycle, and Intersolv PVCS, provides versioning and other functionality to Team Repository users.
