Streamezzo has unveiled a new version of mobile application development platform, which it claims to enable developers to create and run single source code application on any operating systems (OS), breaking the ‘1 source code for 1 OS’ paradigm.
According to Streamezzo, the version 3.0 includes new features and enhancements of each of the three components of the platform required to create, test and publish applications such as authoring tool workbench; rich media server, a J2EE-compliant middleware for managing and upgrading applications; and rich media client, a runtime engine available for major operating systems.
The new release embeds the company’s device database and associated rich media clients in the workbench, allowing developers to gain real time access to the supported devices, browse properties while editing application layouts and scripts, and also test and run applications within the integrated mobile phone emulator, the company said.
In addition, the new version also features a WYSIWYG layout editor that enables developers to create user interfaces and animations, and an integrated skins editor that helps visualising graphic assets and allows developers to switch from one theme to another.
The Streamezzo development platform version 3.0 also includes an enhanced graphical interface and an integrated and continuously updated Streamezzo Components library. These components allow rapid development cycle, and enable developers to create mobile applications easier and closer to the new ergonomic standards, the company claims.
Cedric Gegout CTO of Streamezzo, said: “In the highly fragmented mobile industry, application providers must target several platforms to increase their market share and revenues. We’ve spent the last years with a single motivation: solve the mobile fragmentation issue.
“With today’s announcement, we have reached a major milestone in our mission and developers can create rapidly and easily cross-platform applications with the same design and user experience as native developments.”
