"Omnis Software, today confirmed some of the functionality to be available in the forthcoming release of their highly successful Rapid Application Development tool, Omnis Studio. A highlight is the incorporation of a powerful drag and drop WML (Wireless Markup Language) editor to simplify direct connectivity between server based data and remotely located WAP (Wireless Application Protocol) 'phones. WML is a markup language based on the Extensible Markup Language (XML) and was developed for specifying content and user interface for devices such as phones and pagers."

"The combination of Omnis Studio's Web Client technology for Internet based applications and the new GUI (Graphical User Interface) WAP service generator strengthens Omnis' position as a leader in out-of-the-office solutions. It allows designers to build Omnis applications that can be deployed via the Internet, on mobile phones, and on conventional thick client systems."

"Already proving extremely popular, WAP phones are driving a market which needs to supply and modify relevant information quickly and clearly. With the WAP generator and one of the many available WAP phone emulators, you can quickly build and test cards and decks that can interface with existing data sources, wherever they may be located."

"In addition to the WAP generator, Omnis Studio 3.0 will incorporate a number of other significant improvements, many of them designed to improve the integration of client/server and browser based data access. This has been specifically designed to allow as much flexibility as possible in choosing where and how data is stored, viewed and modified anywhere in the world. More details will be released shortly."
