Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Omnis Software today released the latest beta of Omnis Studio 3.0. The new version, due to be released later this year, will include more tools to seamlessly integrate legacy systems with the latest Web technologies. These include the previously announced drag and drop WAP development tool together with a number of enhancements to the unique Omnis Web Client technology."

"The new version of Web Client will allow multithreading to provide a better response to large numbers of simultaneous hits on a single data resource ideal for scalable ASPs. This has been done by rewriting the Data Access Modules (DAMs) which connect Omnis applications to databases such as Oracle, Sybase, DB2, Informix or via ODBC. In addition, the Application Programming Interface (API) has been opened up so that developers can write their own DAMs. This means that they should be able to connect their other SQL databases to an Omnis front end to take full advantage of Omnis Studio's extensive functionality."

"There is improved load sharing and balancing for Web server processing, and some code can now optionally be run at the client end to improve performance. New controls such as clock, progress bar and slider have been added to the client side of Web Client, and a number of other enhancements have been included aimed at improving web performance.
