What's New
Version 6.0:
  • Standalone Mobile Apps and Synchronization - There is a new Wrapper application for the JavaScript Client, available for Android, iOS, and BlackBerry, that allows you to provide mobile applications that can run either without any connection at all to the Omnis App Server, or with an intermittent connection, which would then allow for end user data and application content to be synchronized with the server backend.
  • Accessing Mobile Device Features - There is a new JavaScript control, called the Device Control, that allows you to access hardware features and services on the end user’s mobile device, such as the Camera, GPS, Email, Texting, and Contacts info (the new Device control only works in apps running inside the application wrapper).
  • SQL Multi-tasking and SQL Workers - The new SQL Worker Objects in the DAMs will allow you to optimize server management by running long SELECT statements or other tasks in the background and on multiple threads, allowing the Omnis GUI to continue without interruption.
  • Resizable Remote Forms and Components - JavaScript remote forms now have the $resizemode property which controls how a form can be resized in the end user’s desktop browser. Plus a new $dragborder property allows JavaScript components to be resized dynamically when the end user resizes the browser window.
  • Subform Sets - You can now create a special kind of JavaScript based subform, or set of subforms, each with a title bar and resizable borders, that can be opened in the “main” JavaScript remote form; the subforms can be moved, resized, and minimized by the end user.
  • High Definition Component Icons - You can now use high resolution images (icons) for the controls in your JavaScript remote forms, suitable for displaying on the latest high definition smartphones and tablets; the images are stored in the Omnis tree as separate image files and referenced using a URL rather than the existing Icon ID method.
  • Localization Enhancements - You can now store localization String Tables as Tab Separated Value (TSV) formatted files alongside your library on the Omnis App Server.
  • PDF Printing - A new printing device allows you to print a report to a PDF file which can be displayed in your JavaScript web or mobile apps.
  • Rich Text Editor - There is a new JavaScript control that allows the content in a field to be edited by the end user; wordprocessor like tools are provided for editing the text.
  • Dynamic Tree Lists - The content inside a Tree List Control can now be built dynamically as the end user expands a node, rather than initially having to build the whole contents of the tree.
  • Linked Lists - Changes to the Edit and List controls allow you to create a new type of dynamic list that updates itself in response to what the end user types into the associated edit box.
  • Omnis VCS - A number of enhancements have been made to the Omnis VCS including the addition of Project folders and new preferences for showing only Checked Out classes.
  • Numbers and Date Formatting - Formatting for Number and Integer JavaScript form fields has been introduced, and formatting for Time and Date fields has been modified.
  • Custom CSS styles - Create your own CSS styles and apply them to the objects in your web and mobile apps, allowing more control of styling and overall design of your apps.
  • Miscellaneous enhancements - Including 64-bit integer number data types, formatting for data grid columns, $init() and $term() client-side methods for remote forms, and fully justified report text.

The Omnis Studio 4.3.1 release is very stable, and much faster in many areas. Support for the Mac OS look and feel is greatly improved. The product now support Postgres, has a useful application server and integrates with other systems via java and SOAP.

It continues to offer a built-in database but most developers will appreciate connectivity to Postgresql and MySQL, along with other popular databases such as OpenBase and Oracle.

Support improved tremendously after a management re-organization some years ago. These days the assistance is accurate and timely.

The Omnis programming "language" is easy to learn and follows a simple standard "dot" notation construct. It offers a robust set of methods and supports an accessible implementation of object oriented programming and architecture. In addition, it supports a large number of "4GL" style commands.

It offers a highly interactive debugger, with immediate "correct and run" at the heart of the tool set. Even with all the new tools available to developers, Omnis Studio 4.3.1 is a good choice for many projects.

The program is extremely buggy, with serious issues that take ages to be addressed, when they are.

The documentation is incredibly poor (not by quantity but by quality, information to number of pages ratio is one of the lowest I've ever seen). Support, whey they deign to answer, seem to think that directing the customer to the forums is a substitute to documentation.

What's worse, I'm not sure addressing the bugs and fixing the documentation would be sufficent to make it a decent product.
