HSC Uses REALbasic to Easily Develop and Deploy SpamX for Windows, Macintosh and Linux

Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) has successfully developed and deployed its spam tracing and reporting software to Windows, Macintosh and Linux using REALbasic. hsc’s experience is described in a new case study available from REAL Software.

AUSTIN, TX (PRWEB) December 9, 2004 -- Hendrickson Software Components (hsc) has successfully developed and deployed its spam tracing and reporting software to Windows, Macintosh and Linux using REALbasic.

hsc’s experience is described in a new case study available from REAL Software at http://www.realsoftware.com/spamx.

"REALbasic is the only solution that enables me to easily develop SpamX for Windows, Macintosh and Linux," stated Jeff Hendrickson, principal at hsc, provider of SpamX. "An added benefit is that REALbasic creates single-file executables, so it eliminates DLL problems. It also eliminates the need for installed frameworks or runtime environments required by other cross-platform development tools."

hsc provides a variety of software products, components and services, including SpamX. SpamX works by automatically tracing the source of spam and reporting offenders to their respective Internet Service Providers. SpamX users typically see their spam levels drop to nearly zero within four weeks.

When looking for the ideal development environment, hsc evaluated many products, yet found that only REALbasic met the company’s criteria for an easy-to-use, powerful development environment that provided simple software deployment for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. hsc discovered that REALbasic creates cross-platform software for Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, and XP and Mac OS X and Mac Classic, and Linux – each with the click of a radio button.

In addition, all of the Windows or Java-based environments they researched required libraries (DLLs), frameworks, or a virtual machine environment to be deployed along with the application software. This simply did not meet hsc’s needs for easy deployment for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. hsc wanted to protect SpamX customers from the additional hassle and technical issues of installing large frameworks or virtual machines. REALbasic, with its single-file executables, eliminates the need for DLLs, frameworks or virtual machines, making deployment simple and eliminating support issues for end users.
