FMS Offers Five New Developer Products for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET

February 13, 2002
Vienna, VA

FMS, Inc. announces today five new developer products designed exclusively for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. These new FMS products offer a wide range of tools that simplify the development efforts of Microsoft .NET developers using Visual C# .NET and Visual Basic .NET, and increase the functionality of their applications.

Total .NET Analyzer

Total .NET Analyzer scans Microsoft .NET applications to detect over 50 potential errors and issues to find problems before the application is deployed. Total .NET Analyzer is great for developers using Microsoft Visual Studio .NET who want to adopt “Best Programming Practices.” With complete Visual Studio .NET integration, view errors as the code is written. Also provides extensive built-in report capabilities.

Total .NET Renamer

Make name changes in C# and Microsoft Visual Basic .NET code with complete confidence. Unlike text-based searches, Total .NET Renamer uses a parser-based Find and Replace engine to ensure that only exact objects are renamed. Ideal for changes to object-oriented code where the built-in Find and Replace tools don’t work efficiently. Designed for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, Total .NET Renamer is completely integrated with the Visual Studio .NET Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

Total .NET SourceBook

Total .NET SourceBook provides an extensive collection of ready-to-use source code with a wide range of C# and Microsoft Visual Basic .NET code, tips, tricks, and knowledge to build Microsoft .NET applications faster and with fewer bugs. Integrated with Visual Studio .NET IDE, developers can easily insert our code into their applications. Developers can also add their code, tips, and snippets into their repository. New techniques can also be acquired through our CodeBase web service. Multi-user ready, Total .NET SourceBook allows an entire development team to share their code and knowledge.

Total .NET XRef

Understanding how all the parts of a Microsoft .NET application relate to each other is a challenge. With Total .NET XRef, developers can instantly generate a complete cross-reference of their C# and Microsoft Visual Basic .NET code. Know how the code really works by finding all the uses of classes, variables, properties, methods, and more. Navigate through all references and debug with ease. Perform real-time impact analysis to see which objects a code change actually affects. Designed for Microsoft Visual Studio .NET, Total .NET XRef is completely integrated with the Visual Studio .NET IDE.

Total SQL Statistics

Integrate a broad range of advanced, statistical analysis into Microsoft .NET applications. Analyzing data from Microsoft SQL Server, Total SQL Statistics calculates percentiles, frequency distributions, t-Tests, confidence intervals, regressions, correlations, one and two-way ANOVA, Chi-Square, non-parametric analysis, probability functions, and much more. Handling an unlimited number of records in one pass, Total SQL Statistics analyzes data from Microsoft SQL Server tables, views, and stored procedures with all results in SQL Server tables. A powerful, interactive Statistics Wizard makes it easy to create and fine-tune the statistical analysis desired. Once completed, the code to add to a Microsoft Visual Studio.NET application is automatically generated. Total SQL Statistics is the only statistical program that includes a royalty-free, runtime distribution license.

"After years of effort investing and developing in Microsoft .NET, we are very pleased to provide a powerful set of tools to increase the productivity of developers using Visual Studio .NET,” said Luke Chung, FMS President and founder. “We’ve created commercial developer tools since 1987 and see the enormous potential of the new .NET platform. We are very excited to be an early adopter of .NET, as we are enabling developers to take their .NET applications to the next level."

"Microsoft, in combination with FMS is delivering an easy-to-use computing experience that will enable customers to take advantage of the next generation of the Web," said David Lazar, group product manager for the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp. "The FMS product line for Microsoft .NET will be an extremely valuable set of products for our mutual customers."
