Syncfusion, an enterprise technology provider of .NET components and controls, today announced the release of a new version of its award-winning Essential Studio Enterprise Edition. Volume 4 gives developers the ability to target all mobile platforms (Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry) with a single code base. It provides a cross-platform ASP.NET MVC chart control that leverages HTML5 and adds a PDF Viewer to the MVC suite.
Analyst firm Forrester Research predicts corporations will spend up to $17 billion creating mobile applications for their products andworking with third-party services and companies that manage these applications.
This release contains mobile controls written using the ASP.NET MVC runtime, which Syncfusion refers to as Mobile MVC. As a result, ASP.NET MVC web developers can now create cross-platform mobile applications without having to learn a new programming language.
“To meet the needs of today’s mobile enterprise – companies must have a multi-device mobile strategy. However, this can quickly drain internal resources,” said Daniel Jebaraj, vice president, Syncfusion. “With this release, Syncfusion saves developers time and broadens deployment options by enabling one code base to be used across mobile platforms.”
Other key Volume 4 features include:
· PDF Viewer for ASP.NET MVC
· Essential BI Grid for ASP.NET MVC
· Project I/O library (similar to XlsIO and DocIO, allows users to create, edit, and save Microsoft Project files without any dependence on Microsoft Project).
