DDH Software has released HanDBase Online Runtime Builder, their new database development tool that enables users to create freestanding Windows Desktop PC companions for handheld runtime solutions.
For nearly three years, DDH Software has been selling its runtime builder solution for Palm OS devices. Early last year, the company added support for Windows Mobile Pocket PC applications as well. With the HanDBase Runtime Builder customers can design freestanding relational database runtime applications. Without having to learn any programming languages, users can create stand-alone applications based on the HanDBase databases they design.
The desktop companion offers full support for editing databases, filtering, searching, and browsing, as well as flexible features for importing and exporting data to other file formats. Additionally, customers can interface with DDH Software's many flexible synchronization conduits to provide bi-directional data synchronization between handheld and desktop, and a myriad of desktop database management systems. These additional conduits are available in individual and unlimited licensing arrangements and are sold separately.
DDH Software says the online Runtime Builder was designed to be fast and easy to use, and many applications can be developed in minutes. Customers interested in trying the solution before purchasing can go online and build a one-day evaluation version of any application with all features available to them.
Licensing for either the 121286 Windows Mobile Pocket PC or 121283 Palm OS version of HanDBase Online Runtime Builder is US$599.99, which includes unlimited, royalty-free distribution of applications created using the program. 150854 Windows desktop solutions can be created for an additional US$299.00.
