Synergex International Corp., provider of business software development solutions worldwide and a Microsoft Corp. Visual Studio Industry Program (VSIP) Partner, has released a new version of their Synergy/DE product suite that delivers seamless Synergy Language integration with Visual Studio 2010 and the Microsoft .NET Framework. In addition to Synergy Language, Synergy/DE provides a database system (a key-value store), support for Microsoft Entity Framework, and connectivity tools for software developers.
The new version, Synergy/DE 9.5, exposes Synergy application developers to the abundance of resources available with the .NET Framework. They can now use Visual Studio 2010 to develop and debug their applications, taking advantage of multi-thread/multi-core development methodologies. And they can utilize the .NET Framework and 3rd-party components, such as those from Infragistics and DevExpress, to continue delivering solid user experiences.
Synergy is an “object-oriented superset” of the DIBOL language, which was Digital's Business Oriented Language. Synergy Language supports both procedural and objected-oriented programming and is well-suited for Management Information Systems (MIS) software development. It has a syntax similar to FORTRAN and BASIC, along with BCD arithmetic. It shares the COBOL program structure of data and procedure divisions.
