Compuware readies tools for Microsoft apps development

Compuware plans to enhance its suite of products for the Microsoft development platform, with tools to improve application performance, code quality, and security.

Debuting next year concurrently with Microsoft's Visual Studio 2005 toolset, the next major release of Compuware's DevPartner Studio will provide developers with actionable advice on changing code to boost application performance, Compuware product manager for DevPartner Studio, Peter Varhol, said. Compuware does not yet have a version number assigned to the product.

Compuware's planned security analysis product for Microsoft application developers, which is thus far unnamed, will provide static source code analysis for security holes. It also will perform attack simulations at run-time. "We'll throw attacks at (an application) to make sure that it handles them appropriately," Varhol said. The product will be intended for ASP .Net-based development.

A third product, also unnamed at this point, will simulate common error conditions such as lack of memory, low disk space, and network disconnections. "It enables developers and testers to re-create error conditions so that they can produce reliable error-handling code," Varhol said.

The security analysis product is expected out late in the year or early in 2005, with the error simulation offering due to follow two weeks afterward.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
