Paladin Enhances COM Power for Omnis Studio 3.0

The new Paladin Component From Computer Dynamics, Inc. Helps to Integrate Applications Into Omnis Studio Solutions Via COM/DCOM.
SAN CARLOS, Calif., Nov. 9 /PRNewswire/ — Omnis Software 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).
Gwyneth Gibbs, President of Omnis Software said, “It made perfect sense to include the Paladin component with the latest version of Omnis Studio. We are always emphasizing the agnostic nature of Omnis: cross platform, cross database and a wide range of client access options. The extension of COM connectivity means developers can integrate leading-edge Omnis functionality with their existing business solutions.”
Sebastian Ernest, President of Computer Dynamics, Inc., reinforced the view, “We originally created Paladin to allow us to extend the functionality of our customers’ legacy systems using Omnis, and without having to rewrite the entire application. We quickly realized that this was an opportunity that other developers would like to have as well. The result is a neat little tool that allows developers to quickly and simply integrate Omnis Studio solutions with any number of Windows based applications.”

About Omnis Studio

Omnis Technology’s flagship product, Omnis Studio is a high-performance visual RAD tool that provides a component-based environment for building GUI interfaces within e-commerce, database and client/server applications. When used with the company’s Web Client(TM) plug-in technology, Omnis Studio allows the development of client/server relationships over the Internet using popular web-browsers, giving fast, secure, scalable solutions in a minimum of development time. Development and deployment of Omnis Studio applications can occur simultaneously in Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments without changing the application code. This portability is achieved because Omnis utilises a highly optimised interpreter engine to execute the object-oriented application at runtime. Omnis Studio applications support native data access to Oracle, Sybase, DB2/UDB, Informix and ODBC-compliant data sources including MySQL. The Omnis Web Client allows the developer to create client interfaces that either utilise forms or a highly secure plug-in. Using Omnis Studio cuts application development time by as much as 75% compared to 3GL environments (C++, Java), while allowing the developer to use objects developed in 3GL environments as components in Omnis applications.
