Guest contributor Dino Seelig (Uniface Business Partner) talks about his first impressions of Uniface 9.7
Last week I visited the Uniface Lab. The goal: getting informed about connecting WEB apps using Uniface DSP’s.
Building an app, using an off the shelf frame-work, integrating the power of Uniface service was for me a wish for many many years.
Communicating from a WEB app with a Uniface server using a HTTP request was not that hard, but something simple like: “leaving this field validate of the value of this field is a valid key” was still a lot of work. Setup an event listener, pickup the event fired, post an request over HTTP, handle the response, and so on.
Is that all? No there is more. The lab switched from promise driven to quality driven delivery. In the past, the timebox (4 months) was used for to deliver the communicated promises. However the time box is not changed. The vision is. They will spend the time needed to make it excellent. That for me is the best promise to move to 9.7. Uniface is back on track simplifying complex things and shorten the time to delivery again.
