Developing for Windows Mobile Pocket PC with Sybase PocketBuilder
Posted on 20-Apr-2005 20:40 by M Freitas. | Tags Filed under: Articles.

Sybase PocketBuilder is a new RAD tool for creating mobile and wireless enterprise applications for the Windows Mobile Pocket PC platform. Based on the PowerBuilder product, PocketBuilder has a good foundation for extending enterprise application development out to Pocket PC devices.

Pocket PC developers can quickly create robust applications with the PocketBuilder environment, which includes a 4GL IDE for mobile development and extends the Sybase DataWindow to mobile environments, enabling dynamic data access with display formatting and data manipulation capabilities.

PocketBuilder integrates with SQL Anywhere Studio, a mobile database and enterprise synchronization solution. The generated application supports Microsoft INK Controls to add signature verification, handwritten recognition on text fields or images to existing applications. It also supports SMS, Smartphone, GPS, digital cameras, bar codes, and biometric scanners.

The software includes source code control, available within the PocketBuilder environment through the industry standard SCC API. And with ORCA Script comes the ability to build your application in a batch processing way, ideal for overnight builds.

The download document provided by Sybase to our readers is the Reviewer’s Guide, and provides an introduction to PocketBuilder, its features, examples of live PocketBuilder applications, and some benchmark information between PocketBuilder and other mobile application development.
