BlueFinity: Partner and Competitor

I just found out that BlueFinity International is hosting a webinar today at 3pm Eastern time to profile Solution Objects, which is an amazing new component of mv.NET. I’ll invite you to their session, but with tongue firmly in cheek I’ll ask you not to buy anything from them.

U2.NET – Where’s the value?

When IBM purchased a license for mv.NET to re-brand as U2.NET, I thought they were going to offer it as a free value-add benefit to their clients. OK, strip out the cross-platform capability, nail it to U2, and give people a development kit that’s a generation beyond UO.NET. That seemed like a good business move. [...]

XML to/from MV – Part 1

I’ve been doing a lot of work lately with XML data. I’m just importing from XML to MV right now but exporting MV to XML can be the same thing in reverse. Here is part 1 of a multipart discussion on the topic.

CodeSmith, .netTiers, code generation, etc

This is a quick request for a show of hands as to how many of you have done any work with code generation for clients to MV – or how many of you may be interested in rapid code generation for new MV user interfaces.

Using mv.NET with U2

As mentioned recently I upgraded my Universe and Unidata Personal Editions to the latest releases. Actually I just did trial runs earlier in the week but today I did the real thing. After upgrading UniAdmin, Uni SDK, Universe and Unidata, I checked telnet connectivity, then decided to check my mv.NET connectivity. I thought I’d share [...]
