Intel UNIX System Leader Delivers Powerful "Network Computing" Development
Environment and New Developer Programs
UnixWare 7 Launch, Santa Cruz, CA (March 10, 1998) - Supporting today's
release of UnixWare 7, SCO (NASDAQ:SCOC) today announced that it will also
begin shipping a powerful new UNIX development system and introduce new
developer programs. The new development kit and programs are designed to
support UNIX System consolidation, the move to network computing based
business solutions, and a smooth migration to forthcoming 64-bit Intel
The new developer kit, named The UnixWare and OpenServer Development Kit,
or UDK, provides the ability to create a single binary that will run on any
of SCO's three main server platforms, UnixWare 7, SCO OpenServer Release 5,
or SCO UnixWare 2.1. This powerful environment enables developers to create
an application that runs on all of SCO's mainstream offerings, allowing
them to target a broad market without the effort of maintaining multiple
applications. The UDK features an integrated development environment for
Java technology, enabling developers to product a new generation of
client-independent, Webtop-based solutions. 
"The delivery of SCO's UnixWare 7, and the new UDK, thrusts SCO into one of
our main target markets, the enterprise developer," said Mark Pittman, Vice
President of Marketing for TakeFive Software. "We are excited to work with
SCO to deliver our leading-edge code comprehension and development tool,
SNiFF+, on the volume Intel UNIX platform. Our customers will now benefit
from the combination of great hardware price/performance and the superb
performance, scalability and reliability of UnixWare 7. We are proud to
support SNiFF+ for UnixWare 7."
The UDK features enhanced C and C++ compilation systems, a powerful new
debugger that works both in Graphical and character mode, new performance
profiling and optimization tools, extensive APIs and tools for TCP/IP,
networking, and graphics, and an extensive set of HTML-based documentation.
The UDK also provides a starting point for 64-bit applications, by
providing support for 64-bit "long-long" data types, and compile time
switching between 32- and 64-bit applications.
Continuing on the forefront of the network computing revolution, SCO's UDK
also includes leading Java development tools. Featured are 1) the Java
Development Kit 1.1.3, including a JVM, compilers, debugger, JDBC, and
other classes 2) SCO Edition of Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s Java Workshop 2.0
and SCO Edition of Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s Java Studio 1.0. The SCO
Edition of Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s Java Workshop is a full-featured visual
development kit for writing Java applications. It includes a GUI builder,
advanced multi-threaded debugging, a code profiling tool, a fast Java
compiler and support for JavaBeans components (portable, reusable program
modules). The SCO Edition of Sun Microsystems, Inc.'s Java Studio allows
users to create Java applications and applets without writing any code or
having to know Java. Together, these two tools provide powerful Java
development capabilities for building powerful business critical
applications as well as exciting Internet and World Wide Web applications.
To support the new development emphasis on Intel processor-based UNIX
environments, SCO is also in the process of introducing new developer
programs. The new programs will bolster information flow to developers,
support, a wide variety of free and discounted product for developers, new
developer education services, and an array of Go-To-Market services to make
SCO developers successful. The base level of the program is FREE, and
developers who sign up today at will receive
notice shortly about the new program and how to participate.
Special developer pricing for UnixWare 7 and the UDK is now available to
members of the developer program.
