BlueFinity International, a member of the Mpower1 Group of Companies, has made enhancements to mv.NET, an extensive toolset designed for creating Microsoft .NET-based applications requiring access to MultiValue logic and databases.
The latest release, version 4.2, brings key additions to BlueFinity's flagship product, including support for Visual Studio 2010, support for Silverlight application development, and a new data-linked XAML Form Creation Tool.
"The coming-of-age of Microsoft's Silverlight technology opens up a huge door of opportunity for developers to create sophisticated, professional interfaces to their existing applications without the need to learn a hat-full of new languages and technologies," states David Cooper, lead developer at BlueFinity. "For MultiValue developers, the opportunity is just as large because mv.NET provides everything required to link your existing MultiValue data and programs to this fantastic Silverlight environment."
According to Cooper, "Silverlight allows us to create applications that look and feel like desktop or rich-client applications, except they run inside a Web browser (pretty much any browser - IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari to name a few). What's more, you create these Silverlight applications using a single programming language (C#, VB or whatever .NET language takes your fancy) and build it all in a single development environment - Visual Studio."
Visual Studio 2010 brings the much awaited enhancements to the Silverlight visual designer. It also brings an improved IDE interface, making heavy use of WPF. "It's a great development environment, used by millions of developers around the world. It's easy to learn and easy to use, so it's a breeze for developers with existing deep MultiValue application development experience to add a new string to their developer bow," Cooper explains.
"Gone are the days of having to use proprietary solutions to get the job done quickly," he observes. "We are now able to create state-of-the art interfaces to our tried and trusted MultiValue applications in cost-effective timeframes using easy-to-learn, easy-to-use, industry-standard tools."
mv.NET will be generally available in July 2010. For more information about BlueFinity or to find out how to attend a free online webinar, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
