Cross-platform - Windows / Unix
Cross-platform is the ability of the program to run on different operating systems of computers and their versions. It is provided by using the top level programming language, the development and execution environment, which support conditional compilation, layout and code execution for various platforms.
Properties of cross-platform environment
- Easy to use, allows you to create a project in minutes and run it.
- Create a program for different operating systems and devices at the same time;
- Correcting errors during the debugging the program.
Using the Credits platform on Windows and Unix systems
Windows systems are Microsoft operating systems that use the graphical user interface for managing.
Unix systems are multitasking, multi-user, portable operating systems characterized by a modular design, in which each task is performed by a separate utility.
The Credits platform is cross-platform. Using the Java virtual machine, Credits runs on all modern Windows and Unix systems.
Advantages of a cross-platform development environment
- A minimum of resources for implementing the application for various operating systems and devices;
- Less time to develop. By using a single style of user interface common to all operating systems;
- Convenient update, the program is updated for all operating systems simultaneously.
- Use of a single logic. Logic embedded in the work of the application is equally executed on all platforms.
