Raining Data Corp. has announced the launch of Omduit. Omduit a new component for Omnis Studio that will enable developers to add Palm OS connectivity to their Omnis Studio 3 applications.
Omnis Studio is a rapid application development tool which provides support for Mac OS, Windows and Linux platforms (Raining Data notes that Omduit is not yet available for Linux, however). Using Omnis Studio, developers can create client/server or Web-based applications that utilize data from SQL databases like Oracle, DB2, Sybase and Microsoft SQL Server. The data can then be viewed in a number of different environments.
Omduit allows you to transfer data from your Omnis application to a Palm OS-compatible PDA using the HotSync function. Data can then be altered, and uploaded back to the Omnis application database.
Raining Data Corp.’s VP of sales and marketing, Mario Barrenechea, said that the company hopes to see Omduit inspire new innovations from the Omnis Studio developer community.
“Omduit extends the existing capabilities of Omnis Studio to allow Palm device users to perform data management functions locally and then to later be synchronized when the user performs a Hot Sync,” said Barrenechea.
Omduit is available for US$249. For more details, visit Raining Data Corp.’s Web site
