REALbasic is a rapid application development (RAD) environment that provides developers a marked increase in productivity over other cross-platform development tools. REALbasic includes drag-and-drop capability to enable you to quickly create a user interface design, then incorporate the code behind it to add power and functionality.
Migrate Visual Basic applications to Linux and Mac OS X
REALbasic is highly compatible with Visual Basic, so Visual Basic developers are productive very quickly with REALbasic. REALbasic also comes with a utility to help convert Visual Basic projects to REALbasic where they can be compiled for Windows, Mac, even Linux -- with the click of a checkbox.
Create native cross-platform software
REALbasic runs on and creates software for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, all from a single set of source code. REALbasic incorporates platform-specific intelligence, like user interface widgets, so software created with REALbasic looks and feels native, regardless of the development platform you created it on.
Create powerful database applications
Build powerful database applications with REALbasic's built-in REAL SQL Database, based on the SQLite public domain database engine. Connect to external multi-user database engines using REALbasic Professional Edition.
Create graphics for multimedia applications or games
Use REALbasic's support for standard image formats for vector graphics, (such as those commonly created with Adobe Illustrator).
What's new in this version:
- LLVM for RBScript: RBScripts now run up to 17 times faster than in previous releases. Using LLVM for RBScript is the first step towards the adoption of LLVM for building applications in REAL Studio.
- Cocoa (Beta): The option to build for Cocoa is now available, but is at the beta stage. There are some new features for Cocoa builds, such as Pushbutton now has a ButtonStyle property that gives access to nine new styles of pushbuttons.
