The development team at BlueFinity International today announced the release of a new version of its flagship product mv.NET, which combines the power and flexibility of proven MultiValue technology with the feature-rich Microsoft .NET environment. Its seamless integration with Visual Studio provides a rapid application development environment fine-tuned for the MultiValue developer.
mv.NET 4.2.3 continues the rollout of important enhancements designed to provide the MultiValue community with increased longevity by enabling an even greater range of choice in the development of dynamic, enterprise class, MultiValue-based user interfaces and applications.
"Today's increasingly competitive market makes it crucial for resellers and developers of MultiValue applications to keep up with rapidly evolving end user expectation and demand," explains BlueFinity's CEO, Pete Loveless. "End user clients who have invested extensive time and money into their trusted MultiValue business applications don't want to turn away from their investment in order to get the modern look and feel they require."
mv.NET allows the MultiValue reseller to modernize existing applications quickly and cost-efficiently, states Loveless. "They can deliver a modern, sophisticated look and feel to their existing customers while keeping all of the functionality and features of their proven solution. New name accounts can be approached with an application that provides a stylish, modern GUI interface and a solid, proven, MultiValue back end that rivals the competition in terms of features, functions, performance, stability and efficiency."
According to BlueFinity, mv.NET enables developers to create a highly cohesive business layer which is made up of .NET code modules in either C# or VB.NET, allowing non-MultiValue developers to access and utilize the platform in ways which they find familiar and comfortable. This allows developers to focus on the task of creating line-of-business solutions and not on the database ‘plumbing' at the back end. The business layer is built on the rich features of the existing business logic and MultiValue DataBASIC code. All entities can, when required, interact with this business functionality, giving a controlled and consistent business logic implementation. This results in much faster, more effective application development and reduced on-going support costs, especially when combined with the RAD tooling that mv.NET provides for the rapid creation of menus and forms, according to the company.
And since the business layer presents MultiValue data in a generic, widely consumable manner, says BlueFinity, it also allows the full range of third-party tools to be used to deliver cutting-edge, visually compelling GUI interfaces to MultiValue-based applications.
"The times of building it all yourself have gone for good," says Loveless. "A new pattern of using best-of-breed tools and services has emerged to allow sophisticated software to be created in acceptable timescales and budgets. It is in recognition of this reality that BlueFinity continues to lead the market in its provision of MultiValue centric tools for the most widely used and serviced application development environment on the planet - Microsoft .NET. And, in doing so, allowing MultiValue-based resellers and end users to utilize both the immense range of application development tools and the huge pool of .NET aware application developers in order to meet the significant challenges of this rapidly evolving application software development landscape."
