Computer Associates Announces Free Beta of CA-Visual Objects 2.0; Offers Unparalleled Functionality And Flexibility In A 32-Bit Development System.

ISLANDIA, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 14, 1996--Computer Associates will ship free beta copies of CA-Visual Objects 2.0 to the first 4,500 people who respond to this special offer.

Copies can be ordered immediately via the Internet at Shipments will begin August 25 during CA-World '96 in New Orleans.

CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is a fully object-oriented development tool that allows developers to quickly create 32-bit native-code applications for Windows.

"This public beta offer is driven by the extremely positive reaction we received from developers who were testing CA-Visual Objects 2.0," said Ralf Saboroski, CA-Visual Objects product owner. "CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is a dynamic development tool that exploits the full capabilities of 32-bit Windows. We want to give developers the opportunity to begin working with it as soon as possible."

CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is compatible with most legacy Xbase code and employs replaceable database driver (RDD) technology, allowing applications direct access to file formats, including CA-Clipper, Borland's dBase and Microsoft's FoxPro, through a common language interface. It also provides OLE 2.0 and SQL support, and an active multi-tiered repository.

Developers Are Praising CA-Visual Objects 2.0

Ross Chappell, president, Electric People International, Inc., Markham, Ontario, Canada: "CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is one of the most exciting and dynamic development tools available today for Microsoft Windows. This new release offers a world class development environment for creating mission-critical applications in less than half the time it would take in other languages."

Ginny Caughey, vice president, Carolina Software, Inc., Wilmington, NC: "CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is the only tool I've ever used that allows me to re-use fully tested and proven CA-Clipper code in my 32-bit Windows applications, and to extend that investment with ActiveX and OCX controls and other tools that are not available for DOS."

David Rive, president, CPAS Systems, Inc., Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "The fact that CA-Visual Objects 2.0 is built on a 32-bit platform is particularly significant and strategically important to CPAS' business, which is developing software to support pension administration systems. Other products like Delphi may be good in modest development environments, but large, heavy-duty financial applications like ours require an industrial strength platform which CA-Visual Objects 2.0 delivers."

Larry Dysert, project estimator, Eastman Kodak, Honoye Falls, NY: "CA-Visual Objects 2.0 combines the ease of Xbase, the flexibility of Windows, and the power of object-oriented programming into an impressive application development environment, all of which speed the development process and increase productivity."
