Sybase Extends Functionality of Microsoft Visual Studio 2005

Enables Increased Developer Productivity

Sybase has announced its continued and expanded commitment and support for the Microsoft .NET environment. Sybase, a premier partner in the Microsoft Visual Studio Industry Partner (VSIP) program, offers development and modeling products that either support or are integrated into the .NET environment, including DataWindow .NET 2.0, PocketBuilder, PowerBuilder, PowerDesigner and SQL Anywhere. In addition, Sybase is expanding its support for other .NET Framework-based technologies, including Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) 15.0 enterprise-class database, Afaria management and security for mobile platforms and RFID Anywhere middleware platform.

Sybase customers benefit from being able to utilize the services available in the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 resulting in increased developer productivity and easier deployment of data-driven applications. In addition, Visual Studio 2005 customers can easily leverage the power of patented Sybase technology through the DataWindow .NET product. Visual Studio 2005 and the .NET Framework 2.0 introduce features and technologies to support application developers from modeling, to development, and through deployment. These advances further both Sybase’s and Microsoft’s commitment to deliver a complete set of development tools to satisfy every kind of developer.

“Sybase’s continued and expanded support for the .NET Framework will help our customers by making it easier for them to access and leverage the services and classes in the framework,” said Kathleen Schaub, vice president, Information Technology Solutions Group, Sybase, Inc. “This relationship also enables Microsoft to expand its customer base by encouraging more Sybase developers to adopt its tools and develop for the .NET environment.”

“Microsoft is pleased to have Sybase as a premier member of the VSIP program,” said Nick Abbott, group manager in the .NET Developer Product Marketing Group at Microsoft Corp. “The integration of its development and modeling products into the .NET environment will allow our mutual customers to benefit from this extensive toolkit.”

Sybase DataWindow .NET 2.0, a component that boosts the performance of .NET Framework-based development environments, will support the .NET Framework 2.0 with support for Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, ASP.NET 2.0, and ADO.NET 2.0. DataWindow .NET 2.0 beta was announced earlier this year and is currently scheduled for general availability by Q1 2006.
