Borland's ObjectVision is a forms-based language for
Windows 3.0 and 3.1 that was produced until late 1992.
It's great for creating quick forms to maintain a
database, and major applications can (and have been)
developed with OV. It works with Paradox, dBase, BTrieve,
and ASCII files. While OV applications will run under the
32-bit Windows platforms (95/98 and NT), it certainly is not
the ideal programming environment for developing new Win
Systems developed many
ObjectVision business database applications in the
early-to-mid 90s. We are one of the few firms with the
significant experience in ObjectVision, Paradox, and
Delphi to be able to upgrade OV applications to 16 or 32
Bit Delphi, or to 16 or 32 Bit Paradox for Windows. This
enables your firm to leverage the investment in the data
contained in the dBase or Paradox tables your application
currently uses, decreasing the cost of upgrading.
|By the way, our suggestion is
that Delphi should be used for upgrading
ObjectVision applications, since it offers
superior performance and flexibility over
using Windows 95/98 or
2000? We can help you get more mileage out
of your existing Windows 3.1 based ObjectVision
application if desired, by developing custom DLLs to
extend OV capabilities. We have experience with most of
the major third-party DLLs for ObjectVision, in addition
to our own DLLs (which, incidentally, are still available
for sale). Call us for rates and availability.
Concerned about Year 2000 compliance?
In 1998-99, we
received several questions about
ObjectVision's Y2K compliance.
is no issue concerning the
compliance of ObjectVision itself.
ObjectVision is a developer's tool. Its
operation is not affected by the date.
developed using ObjectVision might be
non-compliant, depending upon the
application's development team.
- If you
have an ObjectVision application
developed in 1993, 94 or 95 it may be
non-compliant since many developers were
not taking 2000 compliance into
consideration at that time. Such consideration would involve the use of four-digit date formats for presentation and calculations.
If you would like
for us to test an ObjectVision application for
compliance, please contact us at the phone number or
email address below. We will instruct you in how to
deliver the application to us and provide you with a cost
estimate based upon your description of the application.
Call or email our development group with any ObjectVision-related questions,
comments, or ObjectVision conversion requests [to Delphi or C++ Builder].
