Warwick, UK (Vocus) March 31, 2009
Rocket Software (http://www.rocketsoftware.com) today announced the availability of Rocket AS Version 6.3. Among the many enhancements included in V6.3 is the inclusion of Rocket. Ascent (http://www.rocketsoftware.com/products/application-system/ascent/), a new user interface built on Eclipse, which was developed by the Rocket development laboratory in Warwick, previously known as ASTRAC. Our customers now have the freedom to deploy AS applications via the traditional 3270 interface or the new Rocket.Ascent interface.
Rocket.Ascent is built on Eclipse, a popular Java-based development environment, and can be installed on any Windows desktop; Linux desktop support will be available later in 2009. According to Rocket Software’s George Smyth, “AS users have always recognized the power and benefits of AS. Our customers have built powerful AS applications that need to reach beyond 3270 to their business end user community. The beauty of Rocket.Ascent is that it satisfies all end users -- and without having to rewrite their AS applications. Just point Rocket.Ascent at your existing applications - it is really that simple.”
For those who create, update or test AS applications, Rocket.Ascent also offers significant productivity gains, including: a table explorer for browsing AS and DB2 data, multiple windows allowing simultaneous editing of several application components, a command editor that provides syntax coloring, scrolling, drag-drop support, and import/export dialogs.
