Description
Droplets is a remote GUI platform which enables Net-native applications that are indistinguishable from desktop software, yet maintain all application code on your server. Droplets are virtually indistinguishable from desktop applications, yet maintain all application code on the server for central management and accessibility from any connected computer. Droplets-based solutions can be accessed by users directly from their desktops, or they can be imbedded within a Web page.

Droplets Email provides all of the features available in conventional fat client applications, but offers up to a 90% reduction in bandwidth requirements compared to Web-based applications


What makes Droplets unique?


High Functionality: Unlike Web applications, Droplets enables applications that are responsive, easy to use, and present a familiar Windows style software interface. You can launch your application from its own desktop icon, open multiple window screens, and receive real time feedback and interaction as you navigate fields and input data. A new feature, Drip Line, allows alerts to be sent to the user’s system tray to signal new data (for example, a new price quote, or mail), even if that application is closed.


Net-Native: All application code always remains on your company’s server, allowing you to centrally manage and upgrade applications, while giving your users access from any connected computer. Maintaining code server-side also removes the potential distribution of viruses, while minimizing the amount of data transmitted over the network.


Optimized Protocol: The Droplets platform communicates at a logical level, exchanging events and properties. Only net changes to the interface are communicated, resulting in a highly responsive user experience, even over remote dial-up and wireless. On average, Droplets require one-tenth the bandwidth of comparable Web applications.

Standards-Based: While Droplets is a unique, patents-pending technology, it leverages industry standard tools and technologies wherever possible to lower your learning curve and protect IT investments. Standards support includes: the Droplets SDK is in both Java and C++; the platform integrates with J2EE application servers; security is based on SSL, HTTPS and Kerberos; supports leading systems monitoring and load balancing tools; compatibility with proxy servers and firewalls.
