What’s New in C++Builder 5 As with the staggered releases of new versions of Borland C++Builder and Borland Delphi in the past, C++Builder 5 introduces new features first seen in Delphi 5 and then adds some more. There are many new features and enhancements in the areas of Web programming, distributed application development, team development, application localization, debugging, database application development, and developer productivity, among others. Most of the new features and enhancements are covered in more detail throughout this book. C++Builder 5 is available in three versions: Standard (Std), Professional (Pro), and Enterprise (Ent). Standard has the fewest features but is still a powerful development environment for Windows programming and includes over 85 components for RAD programming, the awardwinning compiler, advanced debugger, and more. The Professional version has over 150 components and adds features including the new CodeGuard™ tool, multiprocess debugging, and standard database functionality. The Enterprise version has over 200 components, including Internet Express, CORBA development, Microsoft SQL Server 7 and Oracle 8i support, MIDAS development, a full suite of internationalization tools, TeamSource version control manager, and more. Missing from C++Builder 5 is Merant (formerly Intersolv) PVCS Version Control.
