Borland C++ DOS Windows OS2

Borland C++ targeted the professional application development market, while Turbo C++ targeted the home and hobbyist market. Borland C++ included additional tools, compiler code-optimization, and documentation to address the needs of commercial developers. In 1997 Borland C++ was replaced with Borland C++ Builder.

Borland C++ Builder Windows

First released in 1997, Borland C++ Builder is a Rapid Application Design environment that uses the C++ language, but includes the same GUI IDE as Borland Delphi. It includes the Delphi compiler and can make use of Delphi code in C++ projects. Borland C++ Builder replaces Borland C++ product. This product was targeted at business and enterprise customers. Current supported versions are sold by Embarcadero Technologies.

Borland dBase Compiler DOS

Borland dBase Compiler is a dBase add-on that enables developers to create standalone high speed compiled dBase application. Developed by Ashton-Tate, the creators of dBase, it guarantees 100% compatibility with existing dBase applications. Applications built with the dBase Compiler do not require that the dBase product be installed, nor does it require any distribution royalties. Compiled applications will run many times faster than in dBase's interpreted environment. It includes support for 386 systems.

Borland Delphi Windows

Borland Delphi is a Windows based Object Pascal development environment. It was based on the earlier Borland Pascal product and adds a GUI IDE geared towards Rapid Application Development. Some of its functionality was merged in to Borland C++ Builder but both continued to be sold alongside each other. Current supported versions are sold by Embarcadero Technologies.

Borland Enterprise Server Windows Unix

Borland Enterprise Server was Borland's Java EE Application Server. The product was developed in 1999 within the team of former Visigenic company that was acquired by Borland in 1997. Borland's Java Studio was supposed to have BES and JBuilder tightly integrated, but in reality this integration never happened. BES suffered compatibility problems even with Borland's own products (JDataStore, OptimizeIt). The appearance of free commercial grade (and more mature) application servers, like JBoss, made BES unattractive and unable to really compete with the former.
