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."
