ZFrame's comprehensive and robust technology enables handhelds
to perform with a level of power and functionality that rivals laptops.
All core functions are housed in ZFrameWorks™
Like most handheld access solutions, ZFrame is based on client-server
architecture. But there the similarity ends ...
The "pop-up / zoom-in" interface brings high density content to
the handheld screen, without endless scrolling. The interface works
with a pen, buttons, keyboard or any combination.
Intranet applications and documents are accessed through Z-ports
that plug-in to the ZFrame server software. Z-ports are modular
building blocks that flexibly expand the server's capabilities.
Analysis Engine & Z-docs™
The Analysis Engine analyzes the object model of the document or
application. It determines the contents, location and behaviors
of all the static and interactive elements for use on the handheld
device. A highly condensed Z-doc is generated for transmission.
Client and server coordinate their actions through the Z-doc distributed
object model, enabling emulation of original docs and forms, transparent
to both user and originating server, mediated by ZFrame functioning
as a proxy client for the user.
Wireless connectivity with a mobile device is fundamentally different
than with desktop PC's, in that the network connection may not be
constant. ZFrame software takes care of potential issues of connectivity
by buffering all transactions between the client and server. Local
and remote caches prevent disturbances or loss of input values in
forms. The client can process many actions and events autonomously
- with or without an active network connection.
