Droplets Inc. introduces Droplets 3.0 Beta for Micro Focus COBOL

Company shows the “COBOL Way to Rich Internet Applications” TM at Micro Focus World 2007

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 http://www.microfocus.com.

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 applications."

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++.
