LinuxPR: Omnis Studio 2.4 makes learning 4GL and OO easier

Mar 31, 2000, 15:00 (0 Talkback[s])

"Omnis Software has announced the release of Omnis Studio 2.4, the latest version of their powerful and popular 4GL rapid application development program. This most recent release incorporates a number of new features specifically designed to aid the learning of 4GLs and object oriented programming."

"Omnis Studio includes an Application Builder which can build complete libraries from pre-installed and modifiable data sets in just a few minutes. These applications can either take advantage of the internal database or connect to external databases such as Oracle, DB2 or MySQL. In addition, the Application Builder allows you to take advantage of the unique Web ClientTM technology and incorporate web functionality into the program in moments. Once completed, the application has two real benefits for students. Firstly, it generates an html report detailing the various classes and methods used in building the application. Secondly, the resultant library is open source, so all of the components can be opened, studied and modified to find out how they are constructed."

"For experienced developers, the Application Builder can serve as a short cut to putting together the basics of a much more sophisticated business solution. Again, because it is open source, the developer can open the library and modify it to exactly reflect their needs."
