From Raining Data:
Omnis Studio is a high-performance visual RAD tool that provides a component-based environment for building GUI interfaces within e-commerce, database and client/server applications. When used with the company's Web ClientÃ?Â¢?Ã?Â¢ plug-in technology, Omnis Studio allows the development of client/server relationships over the Internet using popular web-browsers, giving fast, secure, scalable solutions in a minimum of development time. Development and deployment of Omnis Studio applications can occur simultaneously in Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments without changing the application code. This portability is achieved because Omnis utilises a highly optimised interpreter engine to execute the object-oriented application at runtime. Omnis Studio applications support native data access to Oracle, Sybase, DB2/UDB, Informix and ODBC-compliant data sources including MySQL. The Omnis Web Client allows the developer to create client interfaces that either utilise forms or a highly secure plug-in. Using Omnis Studio cuts application development time by as much as 75% compared to 3GL environments (C++, Java), while allowing the developer to use objects developed in 3GL environments as components in Omnis applications.
