Syclo's Agentry(TM) 5.0 Editor Now Available on Eclipse

Syclo's Model-driven Development Toolset Offers Better Usability and More Personalization Options

Syclo, a leading provider of software that extends enterprise systems to mobile devices, announced today that its mobile application development toolset will be available as a plug-in for the industry-standard Eclipse software platform. Coupled with several new features and usability enhancements, this improvement will mean shorter training times and easier software development for Syclos customers and partners.

Eclipse is an open development platform that comprises extensible application frameworks, tools and runtimes for software development and management. Thousands of companies choose Eclipse for its flexibility, Java development tooling and versatility. Syclos AgentryTM Editor will become a part of the platform and will complement its sophisticated development tools with features including graphical mapping of application components, a connector studio and referential integrity checking.

Graphical mapping of application components allows developers to better analyze the business logic of a particular application by accessing visual maps of relationships, sequences of actions and component properties. For example, mapping actions within a mobile application can quickly show the developer which indexes and complex tables are being used, which buttons use what actions and which transactions have update steps.

Syclos new connector studio further simplifies mobile application development by eliminating the need to define new objects and transactions every time they need to be created. Instead, developers are able to take the service-oriented architecture (SOA) approach of creating and defining these application components from Web services and other external data sources. Referential integrity checking helps streamline development by instantly pointing out broken references and other application inconsistencies.

Making the Agentry Editor available on Eclipse is a great step for us, says Paul Chiapuris, Syclo Executive Vice President of Software Engineering. This move will include many new tools and features that are designed to provide faster and more reliable development while keeping the big picture and business issues in mind. Agentry Editor is one of the most intuitive mobile application development tools on the market. Using it in conjunction with Eclipses built-in tools and powerful personalization capabilities will make it even better.

The Eclipse Agentry Editor plug-in will be generally available with Agentry 5.0 at the Syclo Mobile Conference on September 17, 2008. Attendees can see Agentry 5.0 in action during sessions and in the Hands-On Lab.
