MobiForms Mobile Application Development Tools
Mobile Development Tool
What Is MobiForms?
Rapid Application Development
is a revolutionary rapid application development tool for creating mobile applications for just about any wireless platform including Tablet PC, Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Smartphone, Symbian or Palm.
MobiForms is aimed at novice or expert users alike who do not want to spend hours writing complex code like Java or C++. MobiForms uses Java behind the scenes, but the Java layer is totally hidden. Instead, MobiForms offers an intuitive graphical drag and drop development environment. MobiForms can also be used to create standard Windows PC based applications.
One Complete Mobile Software Toolbox
MobiForms offers all the tools in one "box" for the creation and deployment of any type of mobile application. MobiForms includes the MobiForms Developer, the MobiForms Deployment Wizard, the MobiForms mobile runtime interpreter and a comprehensive manual.
MobiForms also includes the free open-source HSQLDB database enabling the creation of server, standalone or mobile database applications. HSQLDB is the database engine in OpenOffice.org 2.0, soon to appear on millions of desktops around the world.
The MobiForms Advanced edition includes the MobiForms Developer and the new MobiForms Sync Server. The
MobiForms Sync Server
(MSS) is a complementary tool to the MobiForms Developer offering a true offline store and forward capability with sophisticated online synchronisation, replication and offline data buffering.
The MSS can replicate data from any central database server running Oracle Server, Oracle Lite, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase SQL Anywhere Server, IBM DB2 Server, SQLite and Sun MySQL, over any wireless network, to any mobile device running a MobiForms client. Click
for more details.
Where remote database access is required MobiForms has been certified to run with Oracle Lite, Personal Oracle, Oracle Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase SQL Anywhere, IBM DB2 Server, SQLite (Windows Edition), Sun MySQL and HSQLDB. HSQLDB can be directly replaced with the HXSQL database.
Oracle, Sybase, MySQL and HSQLDB server certification enables a working server based solution to be achieved first before moving to a mobile database on a wireless device. Other server and mobile databases will be certified soon.
Alternatively, Mobiforms can read and write to any ASCII file which means you do not need to have a local database installed.
What Can MobiForms Do For You?
Much of the software development community is moving towards Java as the preferred application development tool, but many developers are used to using highly productive tools like Oracle Developer or PowerBuilder and do not want to use Java because it is seen as a low level language with hundreds of difficult commands and syntax.
With Java it can take days or even weeks to create usable applications. MobiForms solves this problem by doing the Java programming for you. You direct MobiForms with an intuitive graphical drag and drop interface using rapid application development principles. Applications can be developed in minutes instead of days. MobiForms creates and uses the simple Forms Mark-up Language (FML) files instead of complex JAR files.
MobiForms automates the development life cycle of mobile applications from design right through to deployment.
MobiForms costs no more than what you would pay for a couple of hours of a Java contractor. All the difficult database result set management and cursor control are managed by the MobiForms runtime interpreter.
