FairCom Corporation has introduced Universal binary support across its product range - including the c-tree Plus database SDK, c-treeSQL Server technology, and c-tree ISAM Server technology - for Mac OS X 10.4.

The company's director of business development, Randal Hoff, praised Apple's developer tools: "Using Apple's superb developer tools the effort required to create Universal versions of our products was much less than we originally anticipated."

He explained that these tools meant the team working on the c-tree port was able to accomplish its mission "in under a week; so start to finish, from receipt of the hardware to the completion of all of our quality control processes, was less than a month end to end. That's impressive."

FairCom Server technology is utilised by organisations such as McGraw-Hill, Federal Express and NASA.
