mv.NET facilitates communications between MV / Pick DBMS environments and external products and components. mv.NET is used in the development of Web Services to and from MultiValue applications. It is used to extract and update data in an MV database using relational tools and SQL-like syntax. It’s used to create a thick-client Windows Form, and thin-client ASP.NET browser/mobile interfaces.
mv.NET supports MV platforms including Universe, Unidata, jBASE, D3, QM, Reality, Univision, mvBASE, mvEnterprise, and even legacy environments like Advanced Pick, Power95.
mv.NET is a suite of three libraries consisting of three major libraries, Core Objects, Binding Objects, and Adapter Objects.
mv.NET is integrated with Visual Studio 2005 for the .NET Framework 2.0. (Older VS2003/.NET 1.1 is available, .NET 3 is in development) In addition to making use of mv.NET with C#, VB.NET and other languages directly from the VS2005 IDE, developers can access the MV DBMS to edit BASIC code using a built-in code editor with colored-syntax. The Visual Studio environment can also be used to maintain file data and standard and extended dictionary definitions.
mv.NET is built upon a robust communications framework. .NET Remoting is used for communications from a client or web server to a Session Manager process. This handles all open connections to one or more MV databases. A middle-tier License Manager controls access from any client to any server. “Best-method” tools are used to access each different MV platform. For example, telnet is used as the communications protocol into D3 and jBASE, UO.NET is used as a simple pipe to access Universe and Unidata, and QMClient is used to access QM. With mv.NET managing its own platform-independent communications, business applications are much more easily written on one MV platform and then deployed on another.
Licenses are available for application Development and for end-user Runtime sessions. mv.NET includes a session pooling manager to maximize effective use of existing DBMS licenses.
Nebula Research and Development sells and supports mv.NET and provides development services and other services for integrating mv.NET into existing environments.
