I use Windows 7 x64 as my main machine so that’s not an issue. The x64 vst is so that I can do my composing work on my computer till I can get totally moved over to iOS over the next year of two.
I’m looking to use Cocotron, which is only available running on XCode, so that I have access to CoreData. I think their process does use GCC
So far the most difficult part of getting the project going is finding a good ORM for a SQLite database that is central to the app. I have not been able to find anything really decent for C++. Because my main concern is iOS I figure I can leverage the optimazations of Core Data there as long as the Windows vst version is able to get by.
I think the Cocotron project has thorough instructions to get the apps to compile, and I know they come with template xcode projects. From what I have read all of the feed back for Cocotron is unexpectedly positive. Is including JUCE into the process something that is going to break that process or is it just the process itself that you are wary of?
I have arrived at this approach after a long search for frameworks for Dependency Injection, ORM and and threading. Are some of these needs made unnecessary by JUCE itself?
