REAL Software, creator of object-oriented, cross-platform software development tools for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux, today announced the general availability of REAL Studio Web Edition, the first web application development tool designed for both ordinary people and traditional software programmers. REAL Studio Web Edition allows users to easily create rich, web 3.0 applications up to 50 times faster than traditional web development tools by using a single programming language rather than several Web technologies. Because of its unique interface, almost any app built for the desktop can now be created for the web with ease without the need to learn five different web technologies.
Industry Issues / Statistics
· Traditional techniques to build web applications are time consuming and costly because they require hand coding and the mastery of multiple software languages such as HTML, JavaScript, CSS, AJAX and PHP.
· This coding complexity has prevented many developers as well as hobbyists from attempting to create innovative new web-based applications.
· Typically Web applications are made up of source files that can be easily accessed through a Web server, modified or defaced.
· According to a report published by Cenzic, Inc. in March 2010, 82 percent of the reported vulnerabilities in Q3 and Q4 of 2009 were in Web applications, the highest number since the company started compiling the data.
Value of REAL Studio Web Edition
· REAL Studio Web Edition uses a single, high-level, object-oriented language that is tightly integrated with the REAL Studio web framework. This allows developers to focus on what makes their application unique.
· Web Edition’s visual interface builder allows the user to create an interface via “drag and drop” rather than hand-coding it in HTML. Behind-the-scenes, the web framework translates the user interface on the fly into the appropriate web technologies required by the browser, thus eliminating the need for the user to know the above mentioned web languages and technologies.
· REAL Software applications are uniquely compiled to machine code for fast execution, allowing developers to sell their software with the knowledge that their intellectual property is safe and secure.
· REAL Studio is the only suite of web application development tools that compiles applications to binary code, making them extremely difficult to hack.
· The integrated debugger makes tracking down bugs far easier than traditional web development tools. Additionally, the interface controls are supported on all browsers, eliminating testing on each browser which is required with other techniques.
Supporting Quotes
· “More and more users want applications delivered via their browser, but the complexity of doing so made it out of the reach of most people. Now ordinary people and software programmers alike, who once thought the learning curve was too steep, can build web applications easily and quickly,” said Geoff Perlman, REAL Software founder and CEO. “We currently have a seven-year-old creating an application using this new tool and if a child can learn REAL Studio, anyone can.”
· “REAL Studio Web Edition allows me to quickly generate a web application like nothing I have seen before.  For example, I can build a web based form connected to a database in only a few minutes,” commented Gerald Bailey of Baileyware. “Its rapid application development (RAD) approach to building web-based applications is going to completely revolutionize the industry by no longer requiring someone to be an expert in many different languages such as HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, etc.”
· “With Real Studio Web Edition all the knowledge I’ve gained creating desktop apps for myself and clients over the years isn’t going to waste and can be reused quickly,” said Bob Keeney, founder of software development firm BKeeney Software. “There’s no need to learn a new language, IDE, and framework so I can now offer my clients web applications with ease, which allows me to retain more profits instead of hiring a sub-contractor.”
REAL Studio Web Edition is available today for $599. It is included in REAL Studio Enterprise Edition, which also allows developers to create high quality applications for Mac OS X, Windows and Linux.  REAL Studio Enterprise Edition is priced at $995. REAL Studio is available in a 30-day trial and also includes a 90-day money back guarantee.
