About Omnis Studio

Omnis Studio is a high-performance visual Rapid Application Development (RAD) tool that provides a component-based environment for building Enterprise, Web, and Mobile applications - all from one code base. Omnis Studio's Web and Mobile Client plug-in technology allows server-based applications to be accessed over the internet using a Web browser or many types of mobile devices, providing fast, secure, and scalable solutions with minimal development time. With complete scalability, Omnis applications can be developed on any one supported platform and deployed on any other platform without modification. Supported platforms include Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, all with full Unicode compatibility for your data and application interface. Omnis directly supports traditional SQL databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Sybase, and DB2, as well as TigerLogic's D3 multidimensional database via the mvDesigner product. Most other databases may be accessed via JDBC or ODBC. Omnis Studio dramatically cuts application development time compared to 3GL environments (C++, Java), while allowing the developer to use objects developed in 3GL environments as components in Omnis applications.
