San Francisco, August 26, 2002 - Droplets, a leading provider of software infrastructure solutions for highly interactive, real-time Internet applications and a member partner of the Oracle® PartnerNetwork, today announced that its User Interface Server™ V2.2 is validated with Oracle9i Application Server.
The Droplets platform allows Oracle9i Application Server customers to deploy a direct user interface connection ("direct UI") to J2EE-based business logic, without the limited functionality or overhead of "fat browser" technologies, such as DHTML or Java applets, or the local client administration of desktop software.
"Oracle9i Application Server is the industry’s fastest J2EE application server for developing, deploying and managing enterprise applications," said Thomas Kurian, senior vice president, Oracle9i Application Server at Oracle. "By maintaining Java business logic on Oracle9i Application Server, Droplets customers can now quickly and efficiently extend and enhance the user experience for enterprise applications on both desktop workstations and wireless clients."
The Droplets platform enables superior user interface functionality and simplified deployment by enabling Java™ technology or C++ based applications to be administered from a central server, over thin bandwidth connections, and accessed from a desktop icon, wireless device or portal. Droplets-based applications feature the usability and productivity advantages of local software, while maintaining all application code centrally, and using 1/10th the bandwidth of HTML-based applications.
"Customers have asked us to support the leading technologies in the marketplace. That is why we have chosen to support Oracle9i Application Server," said Philip Brittan, president and CEO of Droplets, Inc. "We are confident that customers will value the reliability and performance Oracle9i Application Server provides, which complements the high usability and cross-platform capabilities of the Droplets platform."
Founded in March 2000 and headquartered in New York City, Droplets, Inc. provides an application platform and standards-based Java and C++ development tools for deploying highly interactive, real-time applications. The Droplets platform provides the full GUI capabilities of fat client software, directly from the desktop or through a Web browser, while maintaining all application code on your servers. Droplets provides significant bandwidth savings over Web-based applications, while increasing end-user productivity, customer intimacy and partner loyalty. Visit www.droplets.com.
