What is MobiForms?
Rapid Application Development
The MobiForms Developer is a revolutionary rapid application development tool for creating Native or HTML5 mobile apps for just about any wireless platform including Tablet, Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Windows Phone, Smartphone, Blackberry, Android and Apple iPhone, iPad and iPod. Native apps are installed and run directly on the device. HTML5 apps are run via the device web browser and are stored inside the web browser sandbox. With MobiForms you can write once and deploy to multiple platforms.
One Complete Toolbox
MobiForms offers all the tools in one "box" for the creation and deployment of any type of mobile application including traditional Native mobile apps and now HTML5 offline apps. MobiForms includes the MobiForms Developer, the MobiForms Deployment Wizard, the MobiForms mobile runtime interpreter and a comprehensive set of manuals.
MobiForms also includes the free open-source HSQLDB database which can be embedded in server or standalone mobile database applications. HSQLDB is the database engine in OpenOffice.org 2.0 and above, and included in millions of desktops around the world. HSQLDB includes a feature that enables CSV files to be used as data sources. Alternatively, MobiForms now supports the creation of offline HTML5 apps exploiting the SQLite database engine embedded as Web SQL in most modern mobile web browsers.
The MobiForms Advanced Edition includes the MobiForms Developer and the new MobiForms Sync Server. The MobiForms Sync Server (MSS) is a complementary tool to the MobiForms Developer offering a true offline store and forward capability with sophisticated online synchronisation, replication and offline data buffering.
The MSS can replicate data from any central database server running Oracle Server, Oracle Lite, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase SQL Anywhere Server, IBM DB2 Server, SQLite, MySQL and Firebird, over any wireless network, to any mobile device running a traditional Native MobiForms client or HTML5 offline client.

Where remote database access is required MobiForms has been certified to run with Oracle Lite, Personal Oracle, Oracle Server, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, Sybase SQL Anywhere, IBM DB2 Server, SQLite, MySQL, Firebird and HSQLDB. HSQLDB can be directly replaced with the HXSQL database.
Oracle, Sybase, SQLite and HSQLDB server certification enables a working server based solution to be achieved first before moving to an equivalent mobile database on a wireless device. Other server and mobile databases will be certified soon.
Alternatively, Native MobiForms mobile clients can read and write to any ASCII file which means you do not need to have a local database installed.
Bar Code Scanning
MobiForms supports Android and Apple camera 1D and 2D bar code reader integration with one simple scan command. This feature is ideal for adding bar code scanning to logistics, field service and consumer mobile apps.
What Can MobiForms Do For You?
In the enterpise development community many developers are used to using highly productive tools such as Oracle Developer, PowerBuilder or even Visual Basic. Mobile developers have traditionally had no alternative but to learn low level programming languages such as Java, C, Objective-C, HTML or Javscript with hundreds of difficult commands and syntax.
With low level languages it can literally take days or even weeks to create usable applications. MobiForms solves this problem by doing the low level programming for you. You direct MobiForms with an intuitive graphical drag and drop interface using rapid application development principles. Applications can be developed in minutes instead of days. MobiForms creates and uses the simple Forms Mark-up Language (FML) or HTML files instead of complex JAR or APK files. For total control with HTML5 apps you can optionally change the look and feel by simply configuring the custom style sheet (CSS) properties.
MobiForms automates the development life cycle of mobile applications from design right through to deployment. With MobiForms you can write your app once, but deploy it to multiple mobile platforms.
MobiForms costs no more than what you would pay for a couple of hours of a contract programmer. All the difficult database result set management and cursor control are managed by the MobiForms runtime interpreter.
