Revelation Software Announce the Release of OpenInsight 9.3

Our connection technology has truly made OpenInsight a versatile front-end graphical database development environment

London, UK - 19th December 2011, Revelation Software are pleased to announce the release of OpenInsight Application Development Suite (OI) 9.3.

This latest release of the company's MultiValue application development toolkit includes the following new components:

Data Encryption at Rest (RTIDER)

OpenInsight version 9.3 incorporates a brand new encryption service that system administrators can deploy to encrypt (on a field by field level) data in OpenInsight. The data will be 'encrypted at rest' using industry standard encryption routines. Clients and the encryption service use the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to communicate, this allows the data to be encrypted in transit. Through the use of an Encryption Server (normally, but not necessarily, the same machine as the Universal Driver server), each OpenInsight workstation seamlessly and securely encrypts data for storage when written into an encrypted volume.

OpenInsight for Web (O4W v1.2)

This version of O4W includes many enhancements to the API's, form, Report, Dashboard and Menu wizards. O4W v1.2 also provides additional support for mobile devices, such as tablets and smartphones. Support for these mobile devices have been implemented as a series of additional API's that can be used in building O4W stored procedures. Using jQuery Mobile, the companion library to O4W's jQuery, web pages can be built that follow the design styling that is now becoming the standard on portable devices.

Banded Report Writer

The original Banded Report Writer (BRW) has been replaced using technology based on the C1Report tool from ComponentOne. The OI BRW supports powerful and easy to use banded reports that are compatible with Microsoft Access and Crystal Reports models.

Extended Math Functions

OpenInsight 9.3 includes new extended math functions: _addx, _subx, _mulx and _divx. These new functions allow developers to perform math operations using full precision or a specified precision.

OpenInsight for D3/mvBase Connector

The OpenInsight for D3 connector provides the ability to connect with both the D3 and mvBase databases from TigerLogic Corporation.

"Our connection technology has truly made OpenInsight a versatile front-end graphical database development environment", said Mike Ruane, President/CEO Revelation Software, "Whether your back-end database is Linear Hash, U2 (Universe or Unidata), D3, mvBase, OpenQM, NoSQL or SQL, our toolset leverages MultiValue skills with modern technology."
