New York, NY, September 9, 2003 - Droplets, Inc., an active member of Oracle PartnerNetwork, today announced that the Droplets User Interface Server will support Oracle® Application Server 10g, the latest edition of Oracle’s middleware product that offers enhanced integration and Web services capabilities. With this joint solution, application developers can more easily build grid-enabled applications with user interfaces superior to those traditionally found in thin-client environments that maintain the ease-of-administration typical of Web-based applications.
The Droplets framework enables the creation of rich, thin client applications that have all the usability and power of desktop software but run 100 percent of application business logic on servers that are both cost effective to manage and allow computing loads to be virtualized across a grid. By delivering Droplets technology with Oracle Application Server 10g and Oracle JDeveloper 10g, customers gain a complete end-to-end solution for creating and deploying rich client applications into Web browsers and onto PC desktops and mobile devices.
“Grid computing enables applications to reach greater numbers of users in a highly efficient way,” said Philip Brittan, chairman of Droplets, Inc. “With greater numbers of users, the challenge of making the user interface effective and high-performing becomes more important than ever. Our customers will be able to achieve these goals using Droplets User Interface Server on Oracle Application Server 10g.”
“For maximum flexibility in developing and deploying applications, customers can leverage both the grid computing support and enhanced Web services functionality in Oracle Application Server 10g,” said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Development, Oracle Application Server and Tools. “The combination of the Droplets framework with Oracle application server technology enables organizations to more easily deploy and manage secure, enterprise-class Web services for customers, employees and trading partners.”
