MobiForms 4.05 mobile development tool recently added support for linking wireless PDAs to MySQL databases.

The update now adds MySQL to other popular enterprise databases, including Oracle, Sybase, IBM DB2, SQLite, and even Open Source HSQLDB Notably, MobiForms 4.05 bundles a free copy of HSQLDB for server, standalone or mobile database applications.

MobiForms offers all the tools in one "box" so users can create and deploy any mobile application from surveys to field service, from signature capture to bar coding.

MobilForms is a rapid application development tool for building mobile applications on wireless platforms like the Tablet PC, Pocket PC, Windows CE, Windows Mobile, Smartphone, Symbian and Palm, and eliminates the need to write complex code in Java or C++. Now users can create and deploy professional mobile applications in minutes using MobiForms' drag and drop interface, and the data will be seamlessly tied back to corporate systems, the company said.

Other MobilForms 4.05 upgrades include timers, SMTP email and commands that dynamically change object attributes like font colors and sizes at runtime. In addition, the Deployment Wizard now includes more device and operating environment combinations, and a tab for database deployment.

Early customer reaction is positive: "With MobiForms we quickly built a fully functional custom field service and bar coding module for SAP. MobiForms totally complements our IBM DB2 database and WebSphere middleware," said the project manager from a European SAP systems integrator, in a statement. "The MobiForms licensing model gives us free rein to deploy to any number or type of wireless units at no extra cost."
