Dallas, Texas, July 25, 2005 - Droplets, Inc. today announced the availability of its Droplets platform on Solaris 10. Droplets provides programmers with a framework for creating rich thin client applications that feature the full GUI capabilities of fat client software, directly from the desktop or in a Web browser, while maintaining all
application code securely on the server. Programmers create Droplets applications using the Droplets SDK in Java or C++. "We are very pleased with
the assistance we have received from Sun Microsystems in moving to Solaris 10
and are excited about its prospects" said CTO Frank Rose.
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 be written in standard Java and C++.
