Written by members of the VisualAge for C++ development and services team, this manual describes how IBM's unique "construction-from-parts" visual development paradigm allows developers to build applications quickly. Examples demonstrate how to automatically generate C++ code with the Visual Builder Tool, build GUI applications without learning a complex class library, integrate with existing databases, and develop applications for Windows and OS/2 environments concurrently. Two CD-ROMs contain free 60-day timed versions of VisualAge for C++ and DB2. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
