Latest Upgrade to UniSync 4.2 Enables Database Synchronization Between Java-enabled Mobile Devices and J2EE Enterprise Databases

(Mountain View, CA) - PointBase, Inc., the leader in Java database and synchronization technology for managing enterprise data among servers, mobile, and pervasive computing devices, announced the introduction and general availability of PointBase UniSync for Micro and UniSync 4.2, the latest upgrade to the company's innovative database and synchronization software. The introduction of PointBase UniSync for Micro represents a major technology advancement supporting data synchronization between Java-enabled mobile devices supporting J2ME or J2SE and enterprise databases running on J2EE server platforms. This latest release extends the current UniSync capability that enables synchronization of data between enterprise databases and PointBase server databases running on more capable Java platforms such as J2EE/J2SE, increasing performance by almost 1,000%.

"The new generation of synchronization tools from PointBase simplifies a complex procedure into a set of APIs that allows simple and rapid software development," said Adrian Browne, vice president of technical development for Fieldworker Products Ltd., a leading developer of Java-based mobile computing solutions located in Toronto, Canada. "The bonus is that our synchronization benchmark test time was reduced from one and a half minutes to ten seconds."

With the emergence of enterprise mobility, many resource-constrained mobile devices supporting the new J2ME platform are becoming increasingly prevalent as part of the enterprise. All these devices are used to store and manipulate data, but are powered by different operating systems. Without Java, each application - including databases - must be ported between the various operating systems, making it both expensive and difficult to manage. PointBase Micro solves this problem by providing a subset of JDBC and a database engine for devices supporting J2ME or J2SE. Developers now can rapidly create database-driven applications on all Java platforms using this familiar API.

"Analysts estimate that by 2004, each corporate knowledge worker will have three to four different computing and information devices that will be used to access various applications," said Bruce Scott, founder and CEO of PointBase, Inc. "We are at the early stage of realizing the anticipated explosion in the number mobile devices, and the trend is moving towards Java to form a common platform for all of the various operating systems serving the mobile market."
