DADiSP Application Builder
9 May 2008
The DADiSP Application Builder, or DAB, is a redistributable component form of DADiSP that allows users to embed DADiSP functionality into their stand-alone applications. The component operates as a standard ActiveX control compatible with almost any Windows-based application framework.
By separating DADiSP functionality into a standard component, users can use your tools of choice (VB, VB.NET, C++, C#, etc.) to build your application and have that application seamlessly make use of DADiSP's analytical and/or graphical capabilities. This allows the developer to simultaneously use their knowledge of DADiSP and their preferred application framework.
DAB offers a number of key features, including:
- A small deployment footprint, about 3MB.
- Fast native code implementation - no slow Java virtual machine overhead.
- Works with any framework, you can use familiar and powerful Microsoft tools specialised to build GUIs, not cumbersome vendor specific implementations.
- No custom compilers or link libraries required, use the development tools of the user’s choice.
- Inherent support for large data files.
- All features of DADiSP are still available including Worksheets, custom dialogs, SPLs and DLLs.
- Leverages existing DADiSP knowledge for analytics and graphical manipulation.
- Fast and simple application deployment.
