Joy 2.2, AAA+ Software’s developer productivity and RAD tool is now available in an updated version for Mac OS X. Joy offers a path for developers to learn Cocoa, Apple’s (relatively) new object-oriented development environment.
Using Joy’s command window, you can call Carbon APIs (application programming interfaces) and Java methods interactively. The tool can also be used with Apple’s InterfaceBuilder to develop standalone Mac OS X applications in “record time,” according to the folks at AAA+.
Use of the software is free for evaluation purposes; you can
download Joy online. A free unlock code can be ordered by e-mail. Regular licenses are US$69 for users who develop only small scale applications, and $399 for unlimited use. Joy 2.2 is available for Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, Windows and OPENSTEP. All registered users of the product can upgrade to the new version for free.
