Rogue Wave Software Releases SourcePro 12.0, Complete Enterprise C++ Development Platform

BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - Nov 2, 2011) - Rogue Wave Software, the largest independent provider of cross-platform software development tools and embedded components for the next generation of HPC/High Performance Computing applications, today announced the release of SourcePro® 12.0. With this release, SourcePro continues its long tradition of continual but unobtrusive improvement in performance, precision, reliability and portability.

Developers that have built their applications on top of SourcePro get ready access to enhancements such as:

  • Faster string manipulation -- makes our implementation faster on average than the standard library implementation
  • Compressed streams -- reduces transmission times by up to 50% depending on the speed of the network and compressibility of the data
  • Ability to handle big data -- handles database queries that fetch more data than can fit in memory
  • New floating-point calculations -- includes new representations for infinity and NaN (Not a Number)
  • ScopeGuard implementation -- provides a convenience class to help with managing resources in situations where exceptions may occur

Modifying existing applications to take advantage of advances in computer science typically requires significant development time and resources. SourcePro eliminates this barrier, enabling upgrading with a minimum of design and code changes. In addition, SourcePro provides organizations with the flexibility of easily porting or migrating applications to new operating systems and databases, insulating them from unfavorable choices made by their platform vendors.

"Our customers appreciate the increase in developer productivity they get with SourcePro," said Ben Gomez, SourcePro Product Manager at Rogue Wave. "But what they really applaud is how SourcePro helps them build enduring applications. Because it's easy for organizations to move to different operating systems and databases, they can readily prolong the life of their applications. For example, their software doesn't have to be rewritten simply because their platform vendors have deprecated an older version. Our customers simply choose another platform, recompile, and they're 99% of the way there."

For decades, SourcePro has been the choice of organizations wishing to build high-performance, highly-reliable, portable applications with C++. It includes libraries and components that increase developer productivity, while still providing fine-grained control over critical aspects of their designs. SourcePro's base features include constructs for strings, date/time, streaming, internationalization, and threading. Options include a database add-on that provides a high-level, portable C++ interface to several leading relational databases; a networking add-on with abstractions of socket programming and internet protocols; and a business analysis add-on that provides components for wide-variety of mathematical and currency calculations.
