Question: Who developed the first language compiler and when?
Answer: Rear Admiral Dr. Grace Murray Hopper, in 1949. The compiler, written in assembly language, converted symbolic mathematical code into machine code.
By 1949 programs contained mnemonics that were transformed into binary code instructions executable by the computer. Admiral Hopper and her team extended this improvement on binary code with the development of her first compiler, the A-O. The A-O series of compilers translated symbolic mathematical code into machine code, and allowed the specification of call numbers assigned to the collected programming routines stored on magnetic tape. One could then simply specify the call numbers of the desired routines and the computer would “find them on the tape, bring them over and do the additions. This was the first compiler,” she declared.

TeaLeaf's IntegriTea Web application management solution captures user sessions and alerts application failures in real time. It can recreate as well as correlate failures to a user instantly. This solution results in increased reliability, faster problem resolution, and ensured user satisfaction.
TeaLeaf's IntegriTea application is designed to capture all user interaction with a Web-based application. Every Web page displayed as well as every keystroke and mouse click is recorded, encrypted, and transferred to the IntegriTea server for processing and playback. Because of the volume of data that is captured, in some cases up to 20+ gigabytes per day, performance and scalability are central issues for the IntegriTea server.
After trying other enterprise-wide database servers, TeaLeaf turned to FairCom and the c-treeSQL Server. TeaLeaf engineers found the c-treeSQL Server provided better throughput than other servers. FairCom's smaller footprint, ease of use and cost savings make the c-treeSQL Server a powerful database solution for the IntegriTea Web application management solution.
