[prMac.com] Hanover Park, Illinois - RemObjects Software, LLC has released Data Abstract for OS X, their new framework for Mac and iPhone developers. Data Abstract is a comprehensive framework that takes the burden out of data access and allows developers to concentrate on the core part of their application - data presentation and business logic, without having to worry about the intricate details of dealing with the underlying database.
Data Abstract for OS X is a 100% native Objective-C library and supports development for both Mac OS X desktop apps (Leopard and Snow Leopard) as well as iPhone/iPod touch. It was designed from the ground up to fit in nicely with the tools that Mac and iPhone developers already use, such as Xcode, Cocoa and Objective-C.
Available in three separate editions for .NET, Delphi and OS X, Data Abstract allows the creation of database applications on any of these individual development platforms, or to create platform-spanning solutions that run on a variety of client computers and devices. Data Abstract will communicate seamlessly with servers written using the other editions for .NET/Mono or Delphi, allowing developers to extend their existing project/solution with new clients for these new platforms.
* Mac OS X Version 10.5 Leopard or later (Snow Leopard compatible)
* Xcode 3.1 or later
* Supports iPhone SDK 3.0 and later
* 30 MB Hard Drive space
Fitting in with general Cocoa development paradigms, Data Abstract for OS X is fully designed for asynchronous (and optionally synchronous) data access, making it easy to write applications that keep a responsive user interface while data access and communication with the middle-tier server is under way. Data Abstract for OS X is wire compatible with its sister products as well, making it easy for developers to write applications for other platforms (such as Windows clients or Linux based servers), and have all platforms communicate seamlessly.
The availability of third party tools and components has gone a long way towards propagating software development on other platforms. RemObjects software is the first major component vendor to step into the Mac OS X and iPhone development tools market. And with Mac and iPhone gaining market and mind share, RemObjects software believes a vibrant third-party ecosystem will help drive application development for these platforms.
Pricing and Availability:
Data Abstract for OS X is available now, and pricing starts at $899 (USD) for new users. Attractively priced bundles including other platforms are available as well. Data Abstract for OS X includes RemObjects SDK for OS X.
