|Mimer SQL Mobile on Symbian OS, Series 60
Mimer SQL Mobile is a full scale RDBMS with a very small footprint, which makes it suitable in resource-limited environments such as handheld devices and mobile phones. It is a multi user database server with complete support for standard SQL and transaction management.
Mimer SQL Mobile for Symbian OS and the Series 60 Developer Platform 2.0 user interface can, for example, be used on the Nokia 6630 phone. In the wide perspective this product makes it possible for software developers to build advanced mobile database solutions for mobile phones based on Symbian OS 7 or Symbian OS 8, supporting the Series 60 Platform 2nd Edition.
The database server in the mobile device can be accessed simultaneously from several local applications at the same time. Concurrently, it can be accessed from external clients in the network. The other way around, local applications on the device can access other Mimer SQL databases on other network nodes, for example databases on Linux, Unix, OpenVMS, Mac OS X or Windows.
The client/server communication in Mimer SQL Mobile utilizes standardized network protocols such as GSM, GPRS, Bluetooth, etc.
Data stored in Mimer SQL Mobile is compressed using a very effective algorithm to minimize the use of storage media.
Readers familiar with the Symbian operating system may like that the Mimer SQL Server product is implemented as a Symbian OS server component, just like the regular File server, Telephony server or Window server.
