DesignVision is an integrated development environment for database and
data management application development.
Because of its seamless interface with VORTEX accessware,
DesignVision and its components opens a whole new world to you,
the application developer.
Build high performance business applications
in a high productivity environment -- and run on virtually any platform,
against any commercial database, including an enterprise-wide application
where development is spread across multiple incompatible hardware and
Very much like the "visual" languages available today, DesignVision
simplifies the user interface design, letting you focus on the
functionality of an application or report instead of managing the details
of creating applications with a consistent "look and feel" and functionality.
Trifox tools, however, are optimized and designed specifically for
developing applications and reports that access databases.
DesignVision offers a seamless integration of reports and applications,
even in a heterogeoneous environment. You can design reports that
call and are called by DesignVision-authored applications.
Imagine letting your users call a form to query a database and
pass the relevant data to a report without any additional work on their part.
DesignVision runs in two modes. The first mode lets you run old TRIM
applications in a thin client or fat client windowing environment without
having to recompile them. It presents an ANSI terminal
look-alike. An NxM character (cell) object (widget) acts as a regular
character-based terminal. Internal functions such
as confirmation boxes, prompt dialogs, and list viewers all take advantage
of the target presentation's native functions and widgets.
The second mode offers the full array of windowing widgets that comprise
the DesignVision and TRIM library. You can run existing applications with
a simple recompile. Applications can run on MS Windows, any system with a JVM,
or any system with a browser.
Combining the best of 4GLs, 3GLs, and OOP, DesignVision makes
your job easier with:
The ability to take advantage of SQL extensions without sacrificing database
Screen painters for forms and reports.
An extended C-like procedural language, domain support and reusable code.
Tightly integrated data dictionary that simplifies localization and makes possible
multiple concurrent development streams.
... is an interactive application design system. Fields, lists, canvases,
checkboxes, buttons and other objects are placed in windows which make up
Applications can call other applications, reports, standalone TRIMpl scripts,
databases, and so on. DVapp uses a tightly integrated data dictionary to
both simplify and control application development. TRIMpl is used to determine
how the application runs.
... is an interactive report generator for simple and
complex reports. Design and lay out all your reports on a screen.
Save time by creating often-used procedures in TRIMpl, and using
them at many different stages of the report. You can even let your end-user
develop user-defined procedures that are accessible to all other
procedures in the report. You can call a DesignVision-authored
application from TRIMreport and share data, as well.
TRIMreport has interfaces to all output devices and supports
... is an end-user facility for developing applications and reports.
TRIMqmr supports both QBE (Query By Example) and SQL, as well
as QBE to SQL translation (a useful SQL learning tool). A full function
reportwriter is also included, as well as a simple scripting facility.
On-screen prompts and help screens take the user through all the
Users accustomed to IBM QMF or ORACLE SQL*QMX can easily be productive with TRIMqmr.
