jSyncManager.org announces first alpha release of the jSyncManager 3.0 Palm Hand-held Synchronization Core Application Set for Java, and the second beta release of the jSyncManager 3.0 API for Java.
TORONTO, CANADA, 9 June 2003 - The jSyncManager.org development team is pleased to announce the first alpha release of the jSyncManager v3.0 Core Application Set. This suite of applications, written for Sun Microsystem's Java Runtime Environment, allowing users to perform data synchronization tasks for PalmOS based hand-helds on a variety of computing platforms.
"We feel that the jSyncManager v3.0 Core Application Set is the sort of software corporations looking to manage hand held data within a heterogeneous environment have been looking for", said Brad Barclay, lead developer and project administrator for the jSyncManager.org Project. "It's easy to configure, stable, and highly scaleable. It will run on front office Windows-based systems to synchronize a single hand held, and on the back-office UNIX or OS/2 based systems synchronizing potentially hundreds of hand held systems simultaneously".
The jSyncManager v3.0 Core Application Set comprises two core applications: a graphical end-user application, and the MultiPort Server, which can be set-up to handle the synchronization of multiple hand-helds simultaneously.
Also announced today was the second beta release for the jSyncManager v3.0 API, which allows developers to create plug-ins for the Core Application Set, and to give them the ability to create their own synchronization applications based on the jSyncManager engine. "We got some good feedback on our first beta release from developers looking at what our code can do. That, along with our own internal testing uncovered some issues that we have been able to resolve", said Mr. Barclay.
