Compuware Previews New Technologies for Microsoft Developers

  • 25 July, 2003 15:41

<p>.NET Memory Analysis, Deadlock Detection, Performance Comparisons Highlight Compelling New Features for Accelerating Application Development</p>
<p>Compuware Asia-Pacific will demonstrate, at Tech.Ed 2003, a wide range of new technologies in DevPartner Studio Professional Edition. These technologies add support for the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Windows Server 2003 platforms and will enable developers to deliver better applications, faster.</p>
<p>New DevPartner Studio technologies include expanded support for both .NET and native Windows applications. As developers continue to integrate existing business logic into new .NET applications, the need to detect and diagnose errors early in the development process, profile code and analyse distributed application components, remain challenges to building high-quality and efficient applications.</p>
<p>“Compuware is committed to providing industry-leading capabilities for those that rely on Visual Studio as their integrated development environment,” said Shari Zedeck, Product Manager for the Compuware DevPartner and DriverStudio product families. “As developers continue to integrate existing business logic into new .NET applications, the need to detect and diagnose errors early in the development process, profile code and analyse distributed application components, remain challenges to building high-quality and efficient applications”.</p>
<p>DevPartner memory analysis provides live views of how .NET applications use memory during execution, graphically showing developers the application working set, memory footprint, temporary objects and object leaks. Developers can use this information to write applications that use memory better and exhibit higher performance and more stability. Memory analysis works in conjunction with new dynamic call graphs that provide detailed information on what methods use memory and how they are called during execution.</p>
<p>Nick Abbott, Group Manager for Microsoft .NET Developer Tools in Australia said: “DevPartner Studio is a great example of a partner taking advantage of the extensibility features of Visual Studio .NET by delivering a product that enhances cross-team interaction and improves time-to-market. DevPartner enables development team members - architects, developers, testers and project managers to deliver higher-quality applications in shorter timeframes.”</p>
<p>New DevPartner Studio capabilities also include the ability to compare iterative performance runs using the product’s industry-leading performance profiler, enabling developers to make code changes and immediately determine their performance impact. For native Windows applications, DevPartner Studio will also identify deadlocks among threads and even indicate when a deadlock is likely to occur.</p>
<p>Compuware continues to set the standard for developer tools that improve application reliability and performance. We were the first ISV to deliver developer tools for the .NET platform. We encourage developers to visit the Compuware stand to find out how they can get a free 14-day trial of DevPartner Studio.</p>
