Instant HTML5/JavaScript apps created directly from Schema

Santa Clara, Ca

Building high-quality, mobile-ready database maintenance applications can take weeks to months.  Not any more.  

Espresso Live Browser  creates a complete HTML5/JavaScript application, directly from your schema.  Author to control which fields are displayed and how they are formatted.  Created apps provide all the functionality so tedious to build by hand: filtering, paginated results, master/detail, drill-down navigation, updatable grids, lookups, error handling - they're all out of the box.

The apps are based on a RESTful service, also created from the schema.  You can extend the API with row level security and JavaScript / Reactive business logic, and integrate with other corporate systems as well as custom customer-facing applications.
