Rogue Wave Donates Web Services Code to Apache

C++ Standard Library Is a Critical Component of Enterprise Apps

Rogue Wave Software's donation of its C++ Standard Library software to the Apache Software Foundation is expected to engender positive comments from the open-source community and entail new benefits for developers. The C++ Standard Library, which is a critical component of many enterprise applications, is available through the Apache Software Foundation's Incubator program under the project name stdcxx.

It can be found at http://incubator.apache.org/projects/stdcxx.html.

"Today's professional developer plays a crucial, yet potentially overlooked, role in the success of the 21st century enterprise," said Cory Isaacson (pictured), president, Rogue Wave Software division, Quovadx. "With the donation of the Rogue Wave Implementation of the C++ Standard Library, we hope to make a meaningful contribution to the open source community and the further development of new and innovative products by providing a highly reliable, cross-platform foundation library for professional C++ developers worldwide. The use of the Apache Implementation of C++ Standard Library can free-up valuable developer time, allowing them to a concentrate on building new application features rather than dwelling on the tedious task of cross-platform porting and testing."

By donating its popular C++ Standard Library to the Apache Incubator program in August of this year, Rogue Wave, a division of Quovadx, has enabled programmers to add to and enhance the C++ Standard Library, ensuring the further collaborative development of interoperable applications that keep-up with the fast pace of software development.

"We are happy to accept the C++ Standard Library as an Incubator project," said Greg Stein, chairman, Apache Software Foundation."A cross-platform compatible C++ Standard Library is increasingly important to developers creating applications for use across multiple operating systems and compilers. We look forward to developing additional functionality through the contributions of our community."

"We are very proud to donate this software to the Apache Software Foundation because of their strong track record in stewarding software to the open source community," added Isaacson. "It was very important to us that we donate this software to the community in the most complete and useful form possible, because, as professional developers, we know first hand how costly and time consuming it can be to port C++ applications to various platforms.

"With this contribution, we are demonstrating our commitment to the development community and lending our extensive experience with cross-platform development tools. To us, this is what the Open Source movement is about - empowering developers with the right foundational technology and expertise, allowing them to use these tools to tackle ever challenging application requirements."

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
While the focus and objectives of IoT initiatives are many and diverse, they all share a few common attributes, and one of those is the network. Commonly, that network includes the Internet, over which there isn't any real control for performance and availability. Or is there? The current state of the art for Big Data analytics, as applied to network telemetry, offers new opportunities for improving and assuring operational integrity. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jim Frey, Vice President of S...

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound e...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessio...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
