Progress, a software house specialising in databases and business application software, has added a new Mobile App Builder feature to version 11.2 of its OpenEdge development platform. Mobile App Builder, which runs in the cloud, should enable developers to simply and collaboratively produce mobile applications using OpenEdge. Mobile support will initially extend to iOS and Android devices, but other operating systems should be available in later releases, depending on demand.

Application development is carried out using jQuery Mobile and Tiggzi, a drag and drop cloud development environment produced by Exadel; this is equipped with HTML5 and JavaScript specifically for mobile development. To deploy developed applications, Progress uses Apache Cordova, which converts the application code into native iOS or Android apps. Developers can also use the environment to produce transactional applications without having to make major changes to existing program code.

Other new features in OpenEdge improve user productivity and the software's performance, including when calling application servers, use of SQL offset/fetch statements and support for the sub-second PAUSE feature in ABL (Advanced Business Language) processes. OpenEdge users can also now use Windows 8, Eclipse 3.7 and SQL Server 2012 to run the development platform.
