CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 24, 2001
Rivar Technologies is introducing CODE: NEO, web development
and application server software, designed to dramatically increase
website speed and performance. CODE: NEO integrates HTML web development
languages with C++, the language of operating systems, to deliver
ten-fold speed gains in website processing, according to Gene
Savar, Rivar chief executive officer and co-founder. CODE: NEO
will be demonstrated at COMDEX Fall 2001, Booth L4922 in Las Vegas,
"Speed of execution is the key factor in website users'
satisfaction," said Savar. "Yet users of data-rich,
dynamic content sites have had to accept trade-offs. Typically,
web servers are designed to accept a set number of simultaneous
users. Exceeding that number can prevent users from accessing
all or a portion of a site. That's what happens, for example,
when everyone logs on to buy just-released concert tickets."
CODE: NEO gives a single web server the processing power of ten.
It is designed so companies, web developers and programmers can
easily and cost-effectively eliminate bottlenecks -- both with
existing sites and new sites -- using software rather than expensive
CODE: NEO's speed derives from its ability to bring the power
of C++ to the web. Most websites handle the interaction between
visitors and databases with languages such as JAVA, PERL or ASP.
As web development languages, these lack the processing speed
required by today's data-intensive, interactive websites, Savar
CODE: NEO allows web pages to be embedded with C++ and compiled
into high-speed binary objects that are executed directly by servers
in response to user requests. Benchmarks indicate that compiled
binary objects can execute ten times faster than programs written
in PERL, JAVA or ASP. Users access information faster and more
users per web server are accommodated, reducing bottlenecks and
the potential for site crashes.
The speed gain allows for improved performance in demanding applications
such as interactive form generation, transaction processing, security
and authentication procedures, and access to complex databases.
CODE: NEO effectively increases processing power without requiring
middleware or additional hardware. It lowers the cost of adding
new features, scales efficiently, and smooths migration of legacy
programs to the web. As an online development tool, it gives developers
anytime, anywhere programming access, collaboration and real-time
webserver interaction, allowing for early diagnostics and easy
CODE: NEO also reduces the time and cost to bring new applications
to market. Companies can tap C++ programmers, the largest standardized
language pool of developers, rather than hiring specialized web
programmers, and can reuse the huge, readily available base of
