LogicLibrary boosts .Net development

Software asset management tools vendor LogicLibrary will enable Microsoft Visual Studio .Net developers to search a central library of development assets for Microsoft's .Net Framework.

Through an agreement announced on Monday, LogicLibrary and Microsoft will build a resource to serve as a starting point for developers, business analysts, and architects as they undertake development on Windows, according to LogicLibrary. Users will be able to better manage the lifecycle of software assets.

LogicLibary'sLogidex .Net Library will be integrated with the .Net integrated development environment. Users will connect to the library hosted on the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN). The Logidex .Net Library will be an inventory of metadata about development assets and their relationships to each other. LogicLibary's Active Design system will enable developers to scan a list of .Net-based software assets and perform model-based searches of the library on MSDN.

Additionally, Logidex customers will have this library included in their implementation of Logidex to allow them to map their development assets, including applications, components, XML schemas, and documentation, to the .Net Framework.

The agreement enables Visual Studio customers to access the .Net Library from the Visual Studio .Net start page, said Greg Coticchia, CEO of LogicLibary, in Pittsburgh .

Logidex, Coticchia said, makes searchable all the assets in a software development environment. "It allows you to understand what software development assets you have and understand where they are and most importantly understand where they fit in," he said.

The integration is to be completed later this year. Visual Studio .Net developers will be eligible for a 60-day trial of the Logidex .Net Library.

Microsoft also has invested an undisclosed amount of research and development funds in LogicLibary.

The agreement between LogicLibrary and Microsoft extends an earlier arrangement through which Logidex was populated with the .Net libraries.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
