04 Aug 2011 Three-fold Focus in Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 Beta Program [24422]
Improvements in Performance, Reliability, Developer Productivity

In its beta release of Oracle Solaris Studio 12.3 the focus is on enhancements to performance, reliability and developer productivity, Oracle announces. In the area of accelerating performance, improvements, compiler and library optimizations for the newest Oracle Sun Enterprise Servers; acceleration of SPARC-based systems (incl. SPARC T4) that speed up application performance up to 3x over gcc, with up to a 40% boost over Sun Studio 12; and improvements in application performance of up to 1.5x over gcc and up to 20% faster than Sun Studio 12 for x-86-based systems figure prominently. Application observability has been improved by adding a new code analyzer that identifies common coding and memory access errors and by enabling application concurrency graphs and multi-process application profiling. Enhancements in the area of developer productivity include the capability of remote access from a Windows desktop in development of Oracle Solaris applications; the inclusion of Oracle Pro*C & OCI/OCCI Database development in Solaris Studio IDE; updated support for key open source runtime libraries, including BOOST and Apache C++; and the ability to build applications up to 20% faster than Studio 12.2 and up to 20% reduction in debug information size.
