ODB Admin Tool policy updated
The ODB Admin Tool is a software module for applications based on the Omnis Studio development kit. It provides a tidy user experience for those using the built-in Omnis database technology in a multi-user setting. The project is open source, but development is privately managed.
In the past we asked developers to pay US$300 if they deployed it. Over time it became clear that the requirement wasn’t adding value, so we have dropped that policy. We now encourage developers to find ways to contribute regardless of how you use it. This may be new code, a bug fix or two, documentation improvement, or even a donation of money to offset the server expenses.
Significant contributors include Alan Schmidt of Bottom Line Software, and Michael Mantowski of ClientTrax. Alan drove the initial development, and Michael recently added support for Windows platform.
Omnis developers are welcome to join the project. Please submit a request using our <a href=”http://www.mophilly.com/contact-us/”>contact us</a> page.
