There is a rumour going around that ProIV LTD are going to write a new development tool (not written in ProIV) in the next 1-2 years that will replace VIP....

Anyone know how true this is?

Have you heard a rumour also or do you know it to be true?

I also heard a rumour that you were bringing out a function editor, but after waiting so long I don't think that one is true.

:lol:

I don't know about replacing VIP with something not in PROIV but they now write VIP with VIP according to PROIV. It would make sense to gen directly from VIP rather than via the existing bootstraps.

My thinking is that the next logical step would be to merge PROIV with Concerto to provide a much better web product.

FYI they have recently moved all the development from the States to galactic HQ (Hemel Hempstead).
So they now have both PROIV and Concerto development under the same roof.

Look at what is happening within Northgate's HRS division. The company has tripled in size by buying one of their major competitors. The strategic direction is to go with Resourcelink, which I think is a PROIV & concerto system. This could result in another 1/2/3000 PROIV sites??? Would this be good for PROIV, how do you think it will impact on the support???

regards

PROIV do not have at this current time any plans to develop another new
development tool for PROIV (or any other language) in any technology.

We are commited to VIP as our tool for development of PROIV
applications; our end of life strategy for Native, SuperLayer and Developer
Studio remains unchanged.

Please don't talk about the incident with the Arrow.

Mommy says it makes me angry.

Certainly, aft seeing ups & down in PROIV i really appriciate VIP and hope it stays for some time, before these people inventing something new. But even if they want to do so, they should make sure it is 100% reliable in working conditions.

Anyone know the end of life date for native? Do we need to begin moving applications to VIP right now? If so, can this be done progressively while in production? :lol:

Hi,

EOL for native was this September.

However, that doesnt mean you cant still develop in it.

I just means that ProIV LTD will not 'support' you using @MOD etc.

However, since VIP still writes to the Native Bootstraps and the kernel still runs off the Native boots, there should be no problem using Native.

As the poll on the front of this site suggests, not that many people have converted to VIP. Currently the poll says that there is only 24% of people on VIP.

Rob.
