MVON# Netbuilder Runs Former SB+ Applications with a Browser

Release Date: Wednesday, March 29, 2017

MVON# Netbuilder from ONgroup Intl runs SB+ (System Builder) applications in .NET. In addition to running the applications in character mode (a.k.a. "green screen"), Netbuilder now also runs the applications in a BUI, a browser user interface.

"This has been a very complex project, taking existing applications and running them in a browser. Our architects and developers have pulled off a hat trick with MVON# tools for running MultiValue in .NET with SQL Server, MVON# Netbuilder for running former SB+ applications in .NET with SQL Server, and now adding a Netbuilder BUI for running those same applications with a browser user interface," said Dawn Wolthuis, Executive Vice President of ONgroup.

While this browser user interface is written for those with existing SB+ or Netbuilder applications, organizations that have written their own application development tools in MV BASIC can use MVON# to turn their tools into .NET with SQL Server development tools. Grant Hart, the Chief Software Architect for ONgroup, indicated that "in some cases, the same techniques we used to create a browser user interface for Netbuilder can be used to web-enable applications written with other MultiValue development tools."

Once a MultiValue application is running with .NET as the run machine and SQL Server as the MV DBMS, the full Microsoft developer toolset is also available for extending and integrating the application. MVON# turns MultiValue into a toolset used in conjunction with the Microsoft platform. MVON# Netbuilder facilitates moving SB+ applications to .NET with SQL Server at the back-end and now with a browser at the front-end.
