REALbasic for Linux

Create software faster, enjoy increased productivity

REALbasic is a rapid application development (RAD) environment that provides developers a marked increase in productivity over other cross-platform development tools. REALbasic includes drag-and-drop capability to enable you to quickly create a user interface design, then incorporate the code behind it to add power and functionality. Migrate Visual Basic applications to Linux and Mac OS X

REALbasic is highly compatible with Visual Basic, so Visual Basic developers are productive very quickly with REALbasic. REALbasic also comes with a utility to help convert Visual Basic projects to REALbasic where they can be compiled for Windows, Mac, even Linux -- with the click of a checkbox. Create native cross-platform software

REALbasic 2007 runs on and creates software for Windows 98, NT, ME, 2000 and XP, Mac OS X and Linux, all from a single set of source code. REALbasic incorporates platform-specific intelligence, like user interface widgets, so software created with REALbasic looks and feels native, regardless of the development platform you created it on. Create powerful database applications

Build powerful database applications with REALbasic's built-in REAL SQL Database, based on the SQLite public domain database engine. Connect to external multi-user database engines using REALbasic Professional Edition. Create graphics for multimedia applications or games

Use REALbasic's support for standard image formats for vector graphics, (such as those commonly created with Adobe Illustrator). Use REALbasic's Real-time 3D Engine to add interactive real-time rendered three-dimensional graphics with built-in tools. Also, use REALbasic's Sprite Animation Engine to develop interactive sprite surfaces with collision detection already built-in.

Revolution Studio

Design Rich Media and Applications

Revolution Studio provides you with all the tools to build fantastic looking solutions in no time at all - it includes a pre-built application shell or project environment, plus all the graphical interface elements you need to create and deploy native solutions on four operating systems!

Start by laying out your presentation layer, add some code, then instantly test without long compilation times! Revolution Studio also supports major video, graphics, and audio formats so you can easily integrate it into your production workflow.

Revolution the Way You Think

Intuitive, screen-based Revolution utilizes a natural, English like command language also called Revolution, a compiled language with a vast library of commands and functions. You don't have to have a programming degree to start writing in Revolution. Drop code straight into objects that trigger them, or anywhere along pre-set message paths.

With Revolution debugging and tracing tools, you can see exactly what happens when your code executes, and, coupled with the ability to switch instantly from coding to testing, ensure that your development process is rapid and bug resistant.

Self Extensible Environment and Features

Revolution is one of the most flexible tools available: you can easily create and extend the Revolution workflow environment using Revolution. Create highly customized, automated Revolution add-ons. You can also extend the reach of your applications with third party Revolution plugins built with the free Revolution SDK. Runtime Revolution's RevSelect Online Store carries several popular plugins and add-on tools.

Solutions for a Connected Business

Build solutions based on the technologies you expect and require: Unicode, XML, SOAP and more. You can even build complete CGI solutions! Revolution allows you to create projects that self update over the Internet, a powerful feature for deploying across a wired or wireless network. Revolution also integrates well with your existing data sources, with out-of-the-box connectivity to the most popular multiplatform-platform databases: mySQL, ODBC, PostGre and Valentina.

Code Once: Deploy Everywhere

With Revolution Studio, create standalone applications (or optionally smaller projects with Revolution Player) for all major operating systems from one operating system and one code base - Windows, Linux (RedHat, Mandriva, Linspire, Novell SuSE), MacOS X and Sun Solaris - No other high level cross-platform tool supports as many operating systems! Before you deploy, Revolution allows you to preview what your solution will look like on a target platform.

This isn't lowest common denominator development either when it comes to features. You can support many operating specific features, too! When you deliver, you don't incur additional license or royalty fees - maximising your revenue and pricing flexibility, while minimising your administration.

Develop on All Platforms

Do you need the added flexibility of debugging Revolution solutions on every platform IDE? Upgrade now to Revolution Enterprise! Revolution Enterprise includes one of every operating system IDE available for Revolution.
