Dallas, Texas, April 30, 2007 - Droplets, Inc. has been invited to attend
the Micro Focus World 2007 to be held in Orlando, Florida. Droplets will be
demonstrating its upcoming Droplets 3.0 release that allows COBOL developers to
access Rich Internet Application functionality from COBOL. Using Droplets 3.0,
developers can incrementally shift from Accept/Display (ADIS) screens into rich,
graphical, user interfaces. The events are to be held from April 30-May2, 2007.
Registration information may be obtained at the Micro Focus web site at
Droplets 3.0 makes updating Accept/Display (ADIS) green screens quick and easy.
Using the Adapter tool in Droplets 3.0, existing Micro Focus COBOL applications
can be upgraded to GUIs by simply re-linking the ADIS library. This initial
upgrade requires no coding changes. Additional state of the art graphical
components may then be added using the Droplets GUI Syntax, as desired. A
Droplets Eclipse Plug-in provides screen layout capability. And all of this
features a rich thin-client deployment model that keeps 100% of the application
business logic on the server.
The Droplets approach fits well with Micro Focus approach. Irving Abraham, Field
Solutions Director at Micro Focus, had the following to say about Droplets:
“Droplets has created an Accept/Display (ADIS) adapter using its Rich Internet
Application (RIA) technology that fully complements Micro Focus's goal of
providing powerful, feature-rich GUIs for COBOL. The adapter is easy to plug in
and allows you to immediately deploy existing applications with a new
look-and-feel -- all without having to re-architect or rewrite those
The Droplets technology enables software developers to create network
applications that have the rich interaction and usability of native desktop
software combined with the administrative ease, universal accessibility, and
high security of server-based Web applications. Droplets applications use only
approximately 10% of the network bandwidth of typical Web applications, thereby
lowering enterprise costs and dramatically improving the responsiveness of
applications for dial-up users and mobile wireless users. Droplets applications
are cross-platform and can be accessed within Web pages or directly from PC
desktops or mobile devices. The Droplets technology is able to offer these
advantages because it leaves 100% of the application program code on the server
and interacts with the user through generic rich-thin client software that then
interacts with the desktop operating system or the Web browser. This
server-based architecture also affords Droplets applications military-grade
security. Droplets applications can also be written in standard Java and C++.
