SYWARE updates its mEnable mobile database software to v2
Boston, April 11, 2005 -- (MobileVillage) -- SYWARE has announced mEnable 2.0, which provides mobile device users with wireless access to enterprise data and run database applications on handhelds and connect to ODBC-enabled databases in real-time.
With mEnable's always-connected interface to corporate servers, users get real-time access to large amounts of centralized data that was formerly trapped at central facilities.
For those who cannot rely on a continuous connection to server data, SYWARE offers its mEnable Occasionally Connected software. When the network is available, users read from and write to the enterprise server. When coverage is lost, they work locally. When coverage is restored, the local and server databases are synchronized and users resume working against the server.
mEnable compliments the company's Visual CE software product line that lets users rapidly create database applications, without programming, that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile device. The new version of mEnable also lets developers use VB .NET to create VB .NET applications instead of Java-built applications.
Support for TCP/IP allows mEnable to work on any LAN, WAN, or Internet connection using the TCP/IP protocol. The network can be based on local Ethernet, Internet protocol, 802.11 wireless LAN, GPRSM, or Bluetooth.
mEnable runs on handheld units to tablets to laptops, including Windows XP-powered Tablet PCs, Windows Mobile Pocket PCs, and all devices running Windows CE, Windows 9x, Windows 2000, Windows NT, and Windows XP. The software is priced at US $499 for the mEnable SDK plus 10 run-time licenses. mEnable single user license: $99; owners of Visual CE Personal Edition can get mEnable for $69. The mEnable SDK packaged with 100 run-times is $1999.
