Trolltech Introduces Qt Script for Applications, (QSA) Version 1.0
Provides tightly integrated scripting interface for the multiplatform
Qt application framework
07, 02 2003--Oslo, Norway--Trolltech, a leader in multiplatform software
development tools, today announced that Qt applications are now
scriptable with the release of Qt Script for Applications (QSA).
Leveraging the powerful Qt API, QSA takes static Qt/C++ applications,
and makes them dynamic.
"QSA was designed to tightly integrate with Qt, ensuring that developers
don't have to worry about binding layers or subset functionality," said
Eirik Eng, Trolltech president. "All developers need to do is add a few
lines of code to their Qt applications, and then the apps are enabled
for scripting and extending."
QSA enables developers to: Prototype changes in already-compiled
applications; write test scripts; customize applications to individual
customer's business requirements; script-enable applications so that
power-users can write sophisticated macros; and provide script-based
fixes for previously released applications.
The QSA toolkit includes the following components:
- QSA SDK, which allows Qt developers to make their applications
- Qt Script, an easy-to-learn, multiplatform interpreted scripting
language. Qt Script is based on the ECMAScript standard, as are
- QSA Workbench, a light-weight, simple to use scripting environment.
QSA Workbench provides the scripter with code formatting, syntax
highlighting, code completion and stack-trace output.
- Input Dialog Framework, a high-level GUI API that allows scripters to

Qt Script for Applications (QSA) is Trolltech's new scripting toolkit
for the Qt multiplatform C++ application framework. QSA enables
developers to make their static C++ application dynamic. Using QSA's
developers can extend and customize their application.
Qt is a multiplatform, object-oriented, easily extensible C++
application framework. Trolltech's flagship product, Qt is well known in
the open source world, and is a de facto standard on Linux. Qt supports
Microsoft Windows, Linux, all major Unix variants, Mac OS X and embedded
Linux. Qt includes Qt Designer, a rapid application development tool and
Qt Linguist, an internationalization tool.
Trolltech is a software company with two flagship products: Qt and
Qtopia. Qt is a multi-platform C++ application framework developers can
use to write single-source applications that run -- natively -- on
Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac OS X and embedded Linux. Qt has been used to
build thousands of successful commercial applications worldwide, and is
the basis of the open source KDE desktop environment. Qtopia is the
first comprehensive application environment built for embedded Linux,
and is used in Sharp's new Zaurus line of PDAs. Trolltech is
