Data technology, the ComponentOne ASP.NET AJAX controls dramatically
reduce the amount of code that needs to be written to handle data
validation, data grid in-cell editing, and robust C.R.U.D. (Create,
Read, Update, Delete) data support.

Partner, has been a long-standing provider of development tools

and is today simultaneously shipping support for Visual Studio 2010,"
said Jason Zander, general manager of the Visual Studio Developer
Division at Microsoft Corp. "The continued success of its products
within the developer community stems from working closely with
Microsoft, delivering high-quality products, and tightly integrating
with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010."
