IP*Works! Version 8.0 Product Details

The latest evolution of the most comprehensive suite of Internet communications components for professional developers has arrived!

IP*Works! V8 represent a substantial leap forward in design, performance, and new functionality. Design features like native streams and object collections sit on top of a highly-evolved code base, updated and optimized for each individual supported development technology. In addition, enterprise features like IPv6 addressing and support for 64-bit architectures have been enabled to make your connectivity application compatible with current and future technologies.

This is a short list of some of the new and exciting component updates available in IP*Works! V8:

  • ATOM - New ATOM client component supporting ATOM feed retrieval and publishing.
  • REST - New component implements a standard REST client, facilitating access to REST style web services such as those from Amazon and eBay.
  • DNS - Naming Authority Pointer (NAPTR) support and support for Reverse DNS lookups.
  • FTP/TFTP - Upload/Download Files to/from memory without writing to disk. FTP clear data channel support (PROT C).
  • HTTP/WebUpload - Upload/Download Files to/from memory without writing to disk.
  • IPPort/IPDaemon - Facilitated file and data transfer through easy to use methods like 'SendFile' etc.
  • LDAP - Support for search result references. Easily move and copy DN's. Support for LDAP referrals.
  • Mime - Parse mime headers without decoding entire mime entities.
  • NetClock - Support for Simple Network Time Protocol providing greater time precision.
  • Ping - Send custom ping packet and change max datagram size.
  • RSS - RSS 2.0 extensions and OPML support. HTTP cookie handling and automatic HTTP redirect following. Load RSS from memory. Support for in memory RSS XML manipulation. If-modified-since handling.

  • XMPP - Support for Jabber extensions, additional contact parameters, and SASL authentication.
  • XMLp - Expanded Xpath navigation and support for easily retrieving xml sub-trees.

In addition to new components and new features, streams are a powerful addition to the new IP*Works! V8 release. Native input and output streams have been added to those IP*Works! components that would benefit from them. As a developer this gives you unprecedented flexibility and ease of use when integrating Internet communications features into your applications.

Collections have also been enabled across the entire suite of Version 8.0 components. Collections can be used to populate the IP*Works! components before calling methods, or more commonly, will be populated with results after calling a method or performing some action. While in many situations collections provide an easier way to access component features, the IP*Works! event model has been maintained and is still an integral part of the overall product architecture enabling better responsiveness and fine grained control when required.

In addition to the new features and performance enhancements, the new IP*Works! product packages have been simplified, packing more value into each edition than ever before. The new .NET Edition not only extends the previous version of IP*Works! .NET, but also includes support for ASP.NET and the .NET Compact Framework. Likewise, the new IP*Works! V8 Java Edition includes both Java desktop and J2EE components optimized for server side development. Further consolidation of IP*Works! will occur in the coming months with the beta of a new Win32 edition supporting ActiveX, COM, Delphi, C++ Builder, C++ etc.
