14.5 SUSE Software Development Kit (SDK) 12 SP4

SUSE Software Development Kit 12 SP4 is an extension for SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 SP4. It is a complete tool kit for application development. In fact, to provide a comprehensive build system, SUSE Software Development Kit 12 SP4 includes all the open source tools that were used to build the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server product. It provides you as a developer, independent software vendor (ISV), or independent hardware vendor (IHV) with all the tools needed to port applications to all the platforms supported by SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop and SUSE Linux Enterprise Server.

The SUSE Software Development Kit does not require a registration key and is not covered by SUSE support agreements.

SUSE Software Development Kit also contains integrated development environments (IDEs), debuggers, code editors, and other related tools. It supports most major programming languages, including C, C++, Java, and most scripting languages. For your convenience, SUSE Software Development Kit includes multiple Perl packages that are not included in SUSE Linux Enterprise.

The SDK extension is available via an online channel from the SUSE Customer Center.
