Volantis Release Features New Mobile Internet Browsing

Oct 13, 2006

Volantis, a supplier of Intelligent Content Adaptation solutions for the Mobile Information Age, has announced the availability of Volantis' Mobile Content Framework 4.0. Volantis' new release improves its mobile internet browsing through dynamic web applications. Framework provides a full suite of solutions to enable the development, integration, and deployment of mobile applications.

Framework 4.0 introduces support for AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML)-enabled browsers. AJAX support enables the creation of interactive web applications. The integrated offering supports the ability to deliver content to devices with basic browsers and those with support for AJAX. Framework 4.0 enables the single authoring and publishing of content using XDIME--a superset of DIAL, a draft W3C standard for device independent authoring and automatically adapts layout, style, and content to accommodate different mobile device capabilities.

This release adds to existing XDIME applications and offers new opportunities for developers to provide device independent applications using the Volantis Framework and technologies such as Ruby on Rails, SOAP, Web Services, Java, and PHP. The resulting novel browser-based applications can be delivered on-demand to the mobile device rather than having to be pre-installed. The new widget library includes support for various dynamic visual effects as well as a number of dynamic screen items such as marquees, carousels, folding menu items, and pop-ups.
