Synergy DBL Integration for Visual Studio (SDI) is a Synergy/DE product that enables you to use Visual Studio to code, build, and debug both types of Synergy programs and libraries:
- Traditional Synergy programs and libraries run under the traditional Synergy runtime. When developed with Visual Studio, these programs and libraries can target Windows, Linux, or OpenVMS.
(See Developing a traditional Synergy application for information on limitations and requirements for Linux and OpenVMS development.)
- Synergy .NET assemblies (programs and libraries) run under the .NET Framework, have access to .NET Framework libraries and other .NET assemblies, and can target Windows (including UWP), Android, iOS, and 64-bit Linux.
1. You can use Visual Studio for traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET development.
Traditional Synergy projects in Visual Studio are used to create traditional Synergy applications and libraries, and Synergy .NET projects are used to create Synergy .NET executables and libraries.
The topics listed below document SDI basics: features and procedures that are common to both traditional Synergy and Synergy .NET.
