Telelogic Tau Logiscope 5.0 ensures best practices for C/C++/Java/Ada applications MALMÖ, Sweden, June 30th, 2000 - Telelogic AB (Stockholm Stock Exchange:TLOG), the leading supplier of software development tools for real-time and communications applications, today announced the availability of its latest, most powerful quality assessment environment to date - Telelogic Tau Logiscope 5.0. Logiscope 5.0 takes manual coding, using C/C++, Java or Ada applications, a giant step on its way to perfection. It enables large development organizations to share the best coding practices, thus cutting time-to- market, increasing product quality, and lowering the cost for eliminating errors. "With the release of Logiscope 5.0, we focused on improving speed and user-friendliness. The new user interface in combination with the high level of automation makes Logiscope an every-day development companion for software engineers," says Erwan Paccard, product marketing manager of Telelogic AB. "Logiscope is an excellent complement to our graphical tools, ensuring top quality where manual coding is used." Logiscope 5.0 provides five ways to reach zero errors in C/C++,Java and Ada development: @ It boosts the efficiency of programming resources by finding the bugs early in the development process. Error prone modules detection and code reviews are automated which makes software development faster and less expensive. @ It enables each organization to leverage on best practices. Logiscope 5.0 includes quality metrics and coding rules that improves the maintainability, testability and portability of software. It improves the software process by sharing and applying coding know-how throughout development organizations. @ It manages and controls the complexity of software. Logiscope 5.0 provides many means to give a graphical view of manually written code. With visual outputs, such as Call Graphs, Control Graphs and Inheritance Graphs, the developer gets a clear picture of the structure and behavior of the system and can then quickly identify and solve complex problems. @ It optimizes the test process. Efficient testing guarantees shorter time to market and better product. Logiscope 5.0 helps to identify inefficient or redundant test suites and non-covered source code. @ It distributes software development guidelines throughout development organizations. Logiscope 5.0 automatically detects programming rule violations and enables a homogeneous programming style within development projects. No matter how many development sites and subcontractors are involved, it ensures they all speak the same language and use the same coding style.
