Before Eclipse was called Eclipse, names that were considered included 'eBAF' (eBusiness Application Framework) and 'FrED'. I don't remember what 'ED' stood for anymore, but I am pretty sure that 'Fr' stood for Framework.
Have you booked your flight to eBAF2008 yet? :)
A Powerful Name
The new Eclipse-based product that I have been leading since I joined Embarcadero is set to be released the week of March 17 at EclipseCon2008. The beta was made available today.
PowerSQL is the name.
The Pert Plus Phenomenon
My favorite invention of the last 100 years is, by far, shampoo-and-conditioner 2-in-1. Forget the microwave. Forget the crantini.
PowerSQL follows the lead from Pert Plus. You will be able to do cross-platform database development (Oracle, DB2 LUW, Sybase, MS SQL, Generic JDBC) all in one IDE.
Off the Cutting Room Floor
My team of developers ventured in the area of marketing recently and attempted to come up with ads for PowerSQL. The production value is very high.
