BlueFinity Integrates MultiValue with Leading Mobile Device Platforms

BlueFinity International is enhancing its leading mv.NET product to enable applications running on any flavor of MultiValue database to be deployed across any of the wide range of today's interface devices - workstations, tablets, browsers, handhelds, phones and other mobile devices. By building strong working relationships with the leading technology players in the mobile platform arena mv.NET developers can utilize the very best toolsets safe in the knowledge that they are mv.NET and MultiValue compatible. Using mv.NET, it is possible to maximize the return on the investment in an existing MultiValue application and take valuable business logic to new heights by creating powerful mobile solutions that address the evolving needs of users and customers in a timely, comprehensible and affordable manner. "Developers can literally go from design to deployment in a matter of hours," states David Cooper, Lead Developer at BlueFinity. "Because we provide all of the plumbing and framework to support your application creation process, you will save valuable time and money as well as reduce the inherent risks of developing your own framework in getting your application implemented and ready to launch. All of your mobile and .NET needs are embraced in one tool (mv.NET) so if you write an add- on application or generate a new GUI for your existing MultiValue application it's all utilizing a single technology for the key middle-tier." mv.NET allows developers to leverage strong code sharing capabilities against multiple mobile device platforms. Cooper explains, "a key feature that we have been keen to enable through our Mobile Technology partners is that of code sharing. This means the ability to share as much code as possible across the different implementations of the same application on various mobile platforms. This is true irrespective of whether you are developing software in C# or HTML/JavaScript." Native applications can be produced for iPhone/iPad/iPod or Android using a common C# based development environment. Alternatively, browser based applications can be created using ASP.NET, HTML5 that adapt themselves to the appearance of native platform. mv.NET provides the route to fulfil both of these requirements without learning multiple mobile platform skill sets. .NET developers don't even need MultiValue knowledge to produce applications. Organizations can utilize the massive resource pool of .NET developers to boost application development bandwidth and reduce development timescales. mv.NET also supports Windows Phone and Windows 8. "Think of it as Silverlight re-imagined," says Cooper. "Utilize all of your existing Silverlight development skills to create stunning mobile applications for Microsoft's superb new 'Metro' interface for mobile devices. Microsoft provides simply the most comprehensive and productive development environment for mobile application development. Get on board now before the train departs - with a bit of help from BlueFinity of course!"

About jBASE

What is jBASE?

jBASE is a database and a set of programs and libraries that allows normal MultiValue (MV) applications to become native Windows, Unix or Linux programs. All of the traditional MV features are supported, including BASIC, Proc, Paragraph, Query and Dictionaries (Pick and Prime style).

What are the benefits of jBASE?

Because existing MV apps are converted to native executables and shared objects, they run fast and take advantage of the latest compiler optimizations available for Windows, Unix and Linux platforms.

Flexible licensing models support cost-effective application deployment for traditional character-based applications and include models suited for efficient deployment of web and graphical-based applications.

A key differentiator is that jBASE architecture tends to make sense to technical hires who may not have prior MV experience. jBASE organizes itself much like other mainstream applications, with full support for pathing and threading. Because it is native, business objects created in jBASE, even those based on legacy code, can be wrapped with other languages. jBASE is a platform that respects the investments made in custom-built legacy apps while allowing non-MV programmers to build next-generation applications using the latest design tools and methods.

jBASE also has one of the lowest support and maintenance costs among enterprise-level MV databases.

Who actually controls jBASE?

In 2015, Zumasys purchased the jBASE intellectual property and development from Temenos, as well as jBASE sales and support from MPower1. Zumasys now controls and markets jBASE internationally with full time developers located in England and North America. jBASE interested us not just because of its worldwide install-base of loyal customers but also because it is a technology that will utilize the Zumasys Cloud to help those customers move to a SaaS business model. We can serve up MV applications running on a multi-tenanted database architecture with unrivaled price and performance and include unique features such as browser-based access.

What does the future hold for jBASE?

Being a native architecture, the future for jBASE is bright. Advancements in technology outside of jBASE tend to benefit jBASE simply because it has a native architecture. This leaves our engineers with time to focus on internal feature and functions and leave other work such as performance tuning and connectivity to vendors of operating systems.

Developers can continue to develop using traditional MV languages and data or choose to develop in new languages. They can choose whether data should be stored in traditional high-performance MV files or in virtually any other database, such as SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 or modern object data stores and noSQL databases.
