CHAPEL HILL, NC -- (PRWEB) September 22, 2004 -- Accelation Software, Inc. has released its BRIGHTUSER GUI application development system for HP OpenVMS on Itanium(r)-based Integrity servers. BRIGHTUSER is a graphical user interface software suite used for developing screen-based applications on OpenVMS.
BRIGHTUSER currently runs on OpenVMS across all HP systems. This means that all applications developed using Accelation Software tools are portable to all HP platforms.
Being cross-platform oriented makes BRIGHTUSER the most powerful offering in its class. Accelation is making available a special $499. "Introductory" offer as part of this announcement.
HP-FMS or EasyEntry users can now upgrade to a graphical application without a complete rewrite of the application, and HP-DECforms users can convert and develop cross platform applications for enterprise use. This minimizes the cost to migrate from legacy systems to the newest Itanium platforms, and practically eliminates retraining for users and developers, plus it maintains interface consistency throughout migration life cycles.
"Extending BRIGHTUSER to the HP Integrity server family of products provides to our customers an almost unlimited life for their applications" said John Wyatt, President, Accelation Software, Inc.
BRIGHTUSER is a complete suite, providing applications with not only the look and feel of a graphical user interface, but also a robust set of dialog management and validation functions to control the user interface at application execution time.
Developers can create user interfaces into database applications faster with BRIGHTUSER because the screen designer software that creates "portable libraries" that can be used on any computing platform. BRIGHTUSER's screen development language can be used on any computing platform to provide a consistent user interface across all computing platforms. This is accomplished by using a platform-independent Form Definition Language (FDL) that adapts the visual interface to each platform.
BRIGHTUSER provides a powerful run-time engine that includes data validation, computation, and database access. Users today are connected to RMS, SAS, Oracle as well as other database applications. In addition, BRIGHTUSER integrates well with external applications. For example, BRIGHTUSER can call programs written in FORTRAN, PL/1 and C, just to name a few. BRIGHTUSER can also be called from within complex external programs to provide access to a high-level user interface development tool.
All applications developed using BRIGHTUSER are portable to all HP platforms. This minimizes the cost to migrate from legacy systems to the newest Itanium platforms, and practically eliminates retraining for users and developers, plus it maintains user interface consistency throughout migration life cycles. This provides upgrade paths for companies using HP-DECforms, HP-FMS, or EasyEntry.
BRIGHTUSER provides database application developers with a number of advanced features not found on other development systems. As an example of the graphical ability of BRIGHTUSER, the run-time application can capture JPEG files or voice recordings from devices such as PDA's and cell phones, embed them within application records, and transmit that information to anywhere on the network.
"We have empowered users with our disruptive technology to communicate up and down the Network to any Device" said John Wyatt, President, Accelation Software, Inc.
BRIGHTUSER is available for the graphical operating environments Microsoft Windows, Motif, and the X Window System (also called 'X' or 'X11'). BRIGHTUSER is available for use on OpenVMS, Microsoft Windows; in testing are UNIX, Solaris, and Linux. It is also available for handheld devices running Palm-OS and soon Microsoft's Pocket PC environment.
