"The new Paladin Component From Computer Dynamics, Inc.
Helps to Integrate Applications Into Omnis Studio Solutions Via
"Omnis Software (Nasdaq: OMNS)and Computer Dynamics, Inc. have
reached an agreement to include the Paladin component with the
latest release of Omnis Studio. The component, which enables
developers to use COM components to access Omnis solutions from
other applications, comes with a free single user license to enable
development and testing."
"Paladin is a technology that allows developers to create COM
components implemented entirely in Omnis. This means that they can
publish functionality of their new or existing Omnis code for use
by other applications, whether written in Omnis or not. Because of
the nature of COM, components can be grouped not only logically,
but physically as well. For example, all of the business logic and
actual data access can be located on one machine, or a series of
load balanced servers, and the display and interface logic can be
located on each client machine. This can be done because, not only
does Paladin allow the developer to create COM objects in Omnis,
but the Windows operating system allows those objects to be
instantiated and used from whatever computer the objects are
located on (Distributed Component Object Model - DCOM)."
