OPENBASE RADSTUDIO ANNOUNCED
FRANCESTOWN, NEW HAMPSHIRE December 31, 1999 OpenBase International,
Ltd. today announces RADstudio, a rapid application development (RAD)
environment for building Java-enabled database applications. OpenBase will
show RADstudio in Developer Central booth 3059 at MacWorld SF ‘2000
OpenBase RADstudio database development tools empower people who understand
business problems, but have little time for software implementation. It
makes the process of building database applications easy through intuitive
tools which unlock the power of relational databases. No programming
“OpenBase RADstudio allows mere mortals to exploit the power of relational
databases,” says Scott Keith, Director of Software Engineering, “It has a
unique method for organizing database screens so users can get more
specific information without being lost.”
Kent Myhre, CEO of Database Design Works, says, “During the RADstudio beta
program we built several prototype databases including one with over 300
tables. We found that RADstudio is extremely easy to use and the database
engine performance is outstanding! We are switching all of our current
projects to OpenBase SQL and RADstudio.”
Special developer pricing is available for January 2000. See
http://www.openbase.com for details. Runtime licenses start at $179.
All licenses include OpenBase SQL Server.

100% WEBOBJECTS COMPATIBILITY
One of the most challenging parts of building dynamic websites is building
the backend administrative tools to manage it. This is especially true when
data structures have complex relationships to be maintained along with
website content. RADstudio speeds up your development by providing tools to
build GUI screens for managing website content in a fraction of the time.
If you use WebObjects to build your website, use RADstudio to build
POWERFUL SQL DATABASE ENGINE INCLUDED
OpenBase RADstudio comes standard with OpenBase SQL database, a
high-performance data storage and retrieval engine for demanding multi-user
applications. It is an ideal SQL-standard database choice for organizations
who want a future-safe environment that lets them take advantage of the
latest object technologies and web tools.
While OpenBase RADstudio currently supports OpenBase SQL, we will also be
supporting Oracle, Sybase and other databases that support JDBC.
FLEXIBLE 4GL FOR DATABASES
While you can build full-featured database applications without writing
code, RADstudio provides a powerful 4GL in case you would like to do
something special. OpenScript 4GL offers a simple way to define business
and interface logic through an event-driven interface. It also supports
nested database queries and full transaction commit/rollback. OpenScript is
very easy to learn and is similar to other languages such as AppleScript,
4D, basic and hypercard.
CENTRAL DEPLOYMENT — POWERFUL RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT
RADbrowser and JRADbrowser (100% Java) runtime applications read RADstudio
applications from the database and launch them on your desktop. JRADbrowser
is also available as an applet so it can be launched from a web page. Since
RADstudio applications are stored centrally in a database, users always
launch the correct version.
BUSINESS SOLUTIONS PROVIDED
OpenBase RADstudio comes equipped with example order entry, contact
management and website store management applications. Each solution
provides a powerful starting point for customer solutions and vertical
market applications. See screen shots at
RADstudio Development: MacOS X Server, MacOS X (when available) and
RADbrowser Runtime: MacOS X Server, MacOS X (when available) and
JRADbrowser Runtime: MacOS 8/9, MacOS X, Windows, Linux, Solaris.
OpenBase RADstudio works with a variety of reporting packages that support
the JDBC and EOF database access standards. Contact OpenBase for details.
