BlueFinity mv.NET 4.2.2 Enhancements

In accordance with the BlueFinity roadmap, the development team at BlueFinity International has released a new version its extensive toolset designed for creating Microsoft .NET- based applications requiring access to MultiValue logic and databases, mv.NET 4.2.2.

mv.NET enables software designers to combine the power and flexibility of proven MultiValue technology with the feature rich Microsoft .NET environment. Its seamless integration with Visual Studio provides a potent rapid application development environment fine-tuned for the MultiValue developer.

As BlueFinity continues to roll out groundbreaking enhancements to its flagship product, its developers are closely watching the market's future directions to bring the latest technologies to the MultiValue and .NET developer communities.

"The on-going development work on the mv.NET product range demonstrates BlueFinity's determination, commitment and ability to provide the MultiValue community with industry leading development tools for the Microsoft .NET environment," explains David Cooper, Lead Developer at BlueFinity.

"These tools allow the rapid creation of state-of-the-art, industry standard applications which can be deployed across any of the wide range any of today's interface devices - workstations, browsers, handhelds, phones and other mobile devices."

mv.NET 4.2.2, available now, includes the following enhancements:

D3 R9. Official support for D3 Release 9 and mvBASE Release 3 plus support for the new MVSP socket connectivity.

SSH-based connectivity support. Enhancement to support secure connectivity (SSH) over IP based connections for all databases supported by mv.NET.

Allow multiple EMR locations to be defined and listed within Entity Modelling in Data Manager. A convenience enhancement to allow multiple EMRs to be accessed within the Data Manager.

Support for the Silverlight AutoCompleteBox control. An enhancement to the XAML Wizard to allow it to generate code incorporating the standard Silverlight AutoCompleteBox control. This allows dynamic lists (representing data selections from the underlying MultiValue database) to be displayed in a control similar to that used in web browsers to capture the desired web URL address.

Plans for the March release of mv.NET 4.2.3 are well underway with the following advancements included:

Support for jBASE's jRemote connectivity option. Enhancement to the connectivity layer of mv.NET to allow it take advantage of the new secure sockets connectivity feature within jBASE Release 5. This provides increased connectivity performance for mv.NET applications running against jBASE 5.

C# code generation from Solution Objects. Full support for Solution Objects to generate C# code as an alternative to Visual Basic.

XAML Wizard chart designer. New functionality to the XAML Wizard to enable data visualization charts to be easily defined and incorporated into applications.

Auto-hide of data form controls based on security. Enhancement to the Silverlight run-time support to allow controls on a form to be automatically hidden/disabled based on user security privilege.

XAML Wizard multiple language translation support. Enhancement to the XAML Wizard to allow foreign language translations to be defined for all literal strings used within Navigation (menus) and data forms. This allows menus and forms to dynamically change their language based on the user's locale setting. Screen content is automatically resized to take into account string length differences across different language translations.

Allow sharing of entities across models. Enhancement to the Entity modeler in Solution Objects to allow an Entity defined in one model to be referenced and used in another.

Group entities together into logical collections within Entity Modelling and XAML Wizard. Enhancement to Solution Objects to allow grouping of Entities into logical collections within the Entity Modeler and the XAML Wizard.
