What we build.

Jargon mobile technology is a true thin client; most hardware devices running any version of Windows can be utilized.

Mobile Development Overview

Jargon Software products use patented technology allowing developers to quickly write and deploy thin client mobile applications which run online and/or offline. We utilize XML files to define the client user interface (UI), and embed Javascript for client side intelligence. Developers create applications that directly manipulate individual client components from any HTTP-compliant middleware, or via Javascript.

Our deployment engine downloads XML applications from a host, similar to reading web pages. Since these XML pages are hosted, deployment overhead is eliminated. Successful mobile applications must be able to run when disconnected. This results in the need to store local data. Jargon Reader can store lower volume data automatically in text, table and other components. Embedded SQL databases are used for higher volume storage requirements. Synchronization is achieved at the application level, resulting in more efficiency and eliminating the need for the additional expense of mobile middleware.

Today, knowledgeable IT managers demand solutions that support a variety of industry-standard middleware and database environments for enterprise applications. Jargon Software's product suite provides full support for adding powerful thin client mobile and desktop Internet applications to leading back office environments.

These XML-based client applications (developed with Jargon Writer) can be deployed with Jargon Reader in any of these environments. This powerful architectural feature preserves your investment in client-side software should you migrate your back office systems to another environment.
