Announcing the release of Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4

Oracle announces the availability of Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4, the latest release of Oracle’s #1 C, C++ and Fortran development environment. Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 offers enhanced software analysis tools and support for the latest programming language standards, helping customers create higher performing, reliable and secure applications in record time.

Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 is included in Oracle's Software in Silicon Cloud and uses the Software in Silicon Application Data Integrity (ADI) feature to help the code analyzer work at near hardware speeds on this feature to allow developers (effectively speeding up what was simulated in software) to quickly find and fix memory errors with minimal overhead.


ISV Engineering has already started working closely with a number of our ISV partners on the latest new features from
Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 and some of them had some nice things to say:

  • "SAS delivers enterprise applications for high end business analytics and we require development and deployment platforms that are specifically optimized for business-critical applications," said Bob Huemmer, software development manager, UNIX Platform Delivery, SAS. "The Oracle Solaris Studio development tools are world class; we use the Performance Analyzer on Oracle Solaris to tune and optimize our applications which also typically yields performance benefits across all of our platforms. We've seen impressive long term and consistent innovation for both Oracle Solaris Studio and Oracle Solaris. Rock solid, worry free binary compatibility translates to lower development and support costs, higher productivity and affords our Solaris customers the confidence to readily upgrade their systems to enable innovative functionality such as Kernel Zones."

  • "AsiaInfo, an industry leading supplier of software solutions and services for telecommunications, has been an Oracle partner for many years and our SMS Gateway solution is supported on Oracle SPARC T5 and Oracle Solaris 11," said Mr. Fu Tingsheng, director of engineering, China Mobile Customer Data Business Division of AsiaInfo. "Oracle Solaris has proven to be a trusted platform for our applications, and the latest release of Oracle Solaris Studio delivers high-productivity features and tools that help improve our time to market. We used the Oracle Solaris Studio Code Analyzer for memory leak protection and it helped us be more proactive and improve our efficiency by 50 percent. Our developers were impressed with the ease of use and depth of data provided by the Oracle Solaris Studio analysis tool suite."

  • Capitek, one of the leading suppliers in wireless access software in China, has a long history of using Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Studio for its Authentication, Authorization, Accounting (AAA) solution. "We are excited about the latest innovations in Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Studio for developing, analyzing and running our mission-critical applications. The Oracle Solaris Studio compilers are highly optimized for the latest Oracle systems and advanced analysis tools, such as the Performance Analyzer, allow us to easily profile our technology solutions for optimal scalability. The combination of Oracle Solaris and Oracle Solaris Studio delivers a robust and reliable platform with high performance, high efficiency and high value," said Jerry Chen, senior manager, Telecom Software Product Department at Capitek.

Oracle Solaris Studio 12.4 is free to download from the Oracle Technology Network site.
