The Microsoft publicity is unmistakable that .NET is their clear and long term strategy for building and running the next generation of applications and XML Web services. The .NET Framework is designed to provide a consistent object-oriented programming environment whether object code is stored and executed locally, executed locally but Internet-distributed, or executed remotely. It also makes the developer experience consistent across widely varying types of applications, such as Windows-based applications and Web-based applications. Delivering this functionality on jBASE 5 is therefore vitally important and so several options are available to meet and match differing needs.
jRCS, jBASE Remote Connectivity Services, gives software developers the capability to build complete and modern graphical user interfaces for .NET based applications. While a new product called jRemote C# is a new client technology option for jBASE 5 which exposes jBC functions like subroutines, execute commands and enables the C# developer to make use of the rich functionality in existing application code. Both of these products are then complemented by the class leading mv.NET product which is designed to provide the jBASE developer with a comprehensive solution to the challenge of creating the most demanding .NET based applications.
