SYWARE's Visual CE® Software Adds Rapid Mobile Forms Development to SQL Server CE Databases

Cambridge, MA (February 26, 2004) - SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced that the company's award-winning rapid application development environment, Visual CE®, now allows creation of fast, flexible forms using data from Microsoft® SQL Server CE databases. Working in conjunction with sqlceEnable™, an add-on software tool from SYWARE, Visual CE can use data from any SQL Server CE database to create mobile forms for a variety of applications, from patient tracking to inventory management. Together, Visual CE and SQL Server CE allow developers to quickly design and deploy mobile applications in exactly the format required, whether the task is monitoring property transactions across multiple realtors, or building a mobile inspection system for the police or fire department.

Powerful Development Functions
Visual CE provides a powerful array of mobile development tools, all within an easy-to-use, 'no programming required' environment. Intuitive forms design, a flexible interface, and support for an unlimited number of controls means developers are up and running quickly.

Visual CE also supports GPS devices and bar code scanners, as well as the ability to send SMS messages directly from within a database application. The software also works in conjunction with Report CE®, the world's only report writing tool for Windows CE and Pocket PC handhelds.
