"The new Paladin Component From Computer Dynamics, Inc. Helps to Integrate Applications Into Omnis Studio Solutions Via COM/DCOM."

"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)."
