Product Key Customer Benefits
|A single tool to build CAA V5 application
Developers are provided with a consistent and integrated environment in which to compile, link-edit and build a V5 application, using the same methods and tools that Dassault Systemes uses to create its V5 products.
Same commands and method under both Windows and UNIX
Fully supported on Windows NT, Windows 2000 and UNIX operating system, CAA - Multi-Workspace Application Builder Product (MAB) provides command line access through DOS on Windows and SHELL on UNIX. Consistent interfaces and processes are used, independent of the target platform. Under Windows platforms, CAA - Multi-Workspace Application Builder Product capabilities and command access can be embedded within the CAA - C++ Interactive Dashboard Product, creating a single integrated environment to write, compile and build applications.
Multiple workspace compilation, link and run time creation
Native compilers are hidden to simplify user's tasks. Its ability to handle multiple workspace compilation, link and run time creation provides a most efficient way to manage dependencies between separate workspaces. CAA - Multi-Workspace Application Builder Product is able to detect modifications in source code, display and track these modifications through the entire build time view, along with other prerequisites workspaces. This provides significant build performance improvement by allowing the user to build only what has been modified.
Access to C, C++ and Java compilers
C, C++, and Java programming languages can be used in program development.
The TIE Compiler is fully integrated through the build process, providing a means to transparently link code interfaces with code implementation interfaces along with providing automatic code generation to ensure there are no multiple derivations.
An EXPRESS Compiler ensures compatibility with the STEP programming standard.
IDL Compiler...The IDL Compiler offers an easy way to provide for a customer program the necessary typelibs for automation. These typelibs can then be used with appropriate scripting, to allow the coding interface to be viewed using VisualBasic Access on Windows. Specific setting of the IDL compiler enables to select which method will be viewed by Intellisense forward typing when operating within Microsoft VBA.
