Matisse Software Announces a new Open Source Eiffel-Matisse Interface.

Mountain View, CA - December 16, 2010 Matisse Software today announces the immediate availability of the new Eiffel interface to the Matisse database.

Eiffel is an object-oriented programming language designed for companies developing enterprise-class applications with very high standard of reliability. The Eiffel-Matisse interface integrates seamlessly with Eiffel Studio, which provides an integrated object-oriented solution for software developers, from analysis and design to code generation, maintenance and reverse engineering.

The tight integration between Eiffel and Matisse has proven to reduce application complexity with direct object-to-object mapping without compromising the Design by Contract principles that is central in the systematic approach to software quality of all Eiffel applications.

“This Eiffel interface leverages the capabilities of Matisse 8 to simplify and accelerate application development through the fusion of native object support and SQL” said Didier Cabannes, President and CEO of Matisse Software. “This truly extends the power of the Eiffel environment and facilitates the construction of reliable and scalable software.”

Matisse 8.4 supports the popular platforms with Windows, Linux, Java and .NET frameworks, SQL and XML standards, and a broad range of language bindings including Java, C++, C, C#, VB.NET, Python, Perl, PHP and Eiffel. Most language bindings are published as open source software.

Matisse 8.4 is immediately available. Pricing starts at $1,920 for the Standard Edition. Pricing for the Lite Edition starts at $125. A free developer version can be downloaded from
