Embarcadero RAD Studio XE Sneak Preview

Coding and Productivity Enhancements for New Development Suite

SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of multi-platform database tools and developer software, today announced the first of three Embarcadero® RAD Studio XE sneak previews leading up to the launch of the new application development suite in early September. The upcoming “2011” release will be named RAD Studio XE and will include Delphi® XE, C++Builder® XE, Delphi Prism™ XE and RadPHP™ XE.

This first sneak preview showcases developer and team productivity enhancements that will be made possible with the new release, along with enhancements to the IDE and new tool chain, modeling and debugging capabilities. These new core productivity enhancements will enable developers to better manage their source code and, ultimately, streamline the development process.

New RAD Studio XE features revealed in this first preview include:

* Subversion version control integration to help manage source code revisions in the Delphi, C++Builder and Delphi Prism IDEs
* Rapid PHP web development added to RAD Studio with RadPHP XE
* New debugging features for Delphi, C++Builder and RadPHP XE
* Modeling enhancements in Delphi XE, including enhanced code generation from the modeler for higher quality code, as well as the ability to generate sequence diagrams from methods

“Developers are constantly challenged to keep productivity high, yet they’re also required to manage source code revisions for themselves and within their team,” said Michael Swindell, senior vice president of marketing and product management for Embarcadero Technologies. “These new capabilities offer very specific benefits that will enable developers to save time on coding, increase productivity and focus on developing quality applications faster.”

The RAD Studio XE release also marks the extension of the new XE brand and capability set to Embarcadero’s application development line, including RAD Studio and each standalone tool in the suite. XE products are distinguished by three key components: support for multiple database types and deployment environments; Embarcadero® ToolCloud technology for centralized license management and on-demand tool access; and an easy upgrade path to Embarcadero® All-Access™ XE.

As with all Embarcadero tools, the RAD Studio XE suite of products will also be available via the Embarcadero All-Access toolbox.

Throughout August, Embarcadero will be showcasing sneak previews to show what’s in store for RAD Studio XE with its new versions of Delphi XE, C++Builder XE, Delphi Prism XE and, now, RadPHP XE.
