C++ Builder

Definition - What does C++ Builder mean?

C++ Builder is a rapid application development (RAD) environment which enables software developers to develop code with higher speed and productivity. The environment is packaged with a number of components that make software coding simpler and faster. C++ Builder is targeted at most modern platforms and operating systems such as Android, iOS, Windows and OS X.

Techopedia explains C++ Builder

C++ Builder is comprised of the IDE and Visual Component Library developed in Delphi and also provides a C++ compiler. It provides a "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) graphical user interface (GUI) developer which enables software developers to assemble code by dragging and dropping components as necessary. There is a lot of emphasis on visual or GUI features, as it reduces the effort required to write thousands of lines of code. C++ Builder shares many core libraries with Delphi so that software developers have available tools which they can reuse multiple times when developing software code.

C++ Builder was developed by Borland and acquired by Embarcadero Technologies in 2009. It is compatible with certain features written in Delphi. In fact, most of the components in Delphi can be used in C++ although the reverse does not apply. C++ Builder also offers visual components that make the work of software developers easier.
