Press Release Summary:
da Vinci database designer and code generation tool reduces time required for database development. After databases are designed, da Vinci generates required C code for creating and managing databases, and provides routines for saving data, deleting data, sorting, creating new data, duplicating data, and searching. Developers can use, modify, and extend code that da Vinci generates with CodeWarrior Development Tools for Palm OS, Version 8.
Original Press Release:
ETS Inc. Simplifies Database Development for Palm OS
Carlsbad, CA., July 1st, 2002 - - ETS, Inc., (http://www.exts.com) a premier provider of handheld products and services, today announced the upcoming release of their new product - da Vinci, The Data Architect for the Palm OS platform. da Vinci is a database designer and code generation tool, designed for use with Metrowerks CodeWarrior Development Tools for Palm OS, Version 8.
ETS recognizes Palm OS devices are being used increasingly for mobilizing corporate information and therefore the need for design and develop data-driven applications for Palm OS is increasing. da Vinci allows a development team to reduce the complexity and accelerate the completion of these data-driven applications by providing a interface for the design of Palm OS databases and generating code that a developer would otherwise need to write manually in a time consuming process.
Developers can use, modify and extend the code that da Vinci generates with CodeWarrior Development Tools for Palm OS, Version 8, the leading development tool for Palm OS devices. "da Vinci will allow CodeWarrior developers to produce powerful applications for the enterprise and do so in less time," said Gerardo A. Dada, Senior Product Marketing Manager for Metrowerks. "Metrowerks is pleased to see ETS bring innovative solutions that empower the Palm OS development community."
Once the required databases are designed, da Vinci generates the required C code for creating and managing the databases under Palm OS. This greatly reduces the time required to become proficient in database development, and the amount of time required to create database structures and the data management framework for a new project.
da Vinci also generates the C code for managing the data. Routines for saving data, deleting data, sorting, creating new data, duplicating data, searching, and much more are provided. These routines are created specifically for the designed data structures, this providing the most efficient and best performing code possible, leveraging the expertise that ETS, Inc has gained through years of professional development on mobile devices. Programming tasks that used to take hours, and even days, can now be reduced to minutes. And the option for generating commented code makes it easier for developers to become proficient at Palm OS database development.
da Vinci will be available in July, 2002, via the ETS, Inc. web site at, and through various on-line and channel distributors. A electronic download license is available for $149, and a CD-ROM version with printed Users Guide is available for $199 (plus shipping and handling). Screenshots and downloads of da Vinci will be available via the ETS web site. The unregistered version of da Vinci is fully functional except for code generation.
da Vinci, the Data Architect for Palm OS, is a product of ETS, Inc. Founded in 1998, ETS Inc. is a privately held corporation that provides professional software design and development services for custoifi and commercial PalmOS projects. CodeWarrior Development Tools for Palm OS, Version 8, is a
product of Metrowerks, a Motorola company.
