CodeGear was a software company from the United States. It was originally a subsidiary of Borland that took over Borland's development tools division. This was sold to Embarcadero Technologies on May 7, 2008 .
On February 8, 2006, Borland announced that it was looking for a buyer for the IDE division. Since no buyer could be found who was willing to pay an adequate sum for several months, the IDE division, previously called DevCo or DeveloperToolsGroup (DTG) , was spun off as a 100% subsidiary under the name CodeGear . Meanwhile, negotiations continued until CodeGear was finally sold to Embarcadero on May 7, 2008. As of July 1, 2008, CodeGear has been a product brand of Embarcadero. In the course of this, the name "DatabaseGear" was created for the previous Embarcadero products.
