Application Service Components
Application service components encapsulate specialized technical know-how for deployment in a business context within components and end-user applications. These components typically focus on an area of functionality such as encryption, charting, barcodes and addressing.
Add the ability to create 3 dimensional models to your application.
These products can help you to speed the input, and improve the accuracy and consistency, of your address data. They perform tasks such as address formating, verification and postcoding, as well as providing user interface elements such as country pick lists. Perform address lookup from zipcodes and postcodes, and derive zipcodes and postcodes from address data. For address quality and enhancement see Data - Quality, for country/IP address lookup see Mapping and GIS. The postcode and zipcode component page contains zIpcode, postcode and addressing components and tools for all platforms including .Net, Java, ActiveX/COM, and VCL.
Build problem solving and decision making systems with these components.
Secure your applications with these user authentication components.
If your application needs to generate barcodes then these components contain all the expertise you need, ready to go. Create, print, view, detect, and read barcodes from within your applications. Our range of barcoding products cover all of the major barcode symbologies.
Enable your application to validate credit card numbers and request credit card authorizations with these components.
Change one currency to another, get currency exchange rates instantly. Enable your applications to be fully multi-currency.
Use industry standard data compression techniques such as ZIP and JPEG to reduce the size of your files and images. Enable your apps to create archives for backup and distribution.
Your app can protect its data from unauthorised acces by encrypting it with one of these components which implement a range of standard encryption and hashing algorithms. Including DES, TripleDes, RSA, Blowfish, Rijndael, RC2.
These tools can allow your applications to detect and prevent bad data at the time of entry and to correct bad data after it has been entered. Verify, cleanse, format, deduplicate.
These components enable enable developers to add diagramming capabilities to their applications. They are oriented towards the creation of diagrams that describe objects, relationships and flows such as work flow diagrams, data entity relationship diagrams (ERD), flowcharts and organisation heirarchy diagrams. For numeric applications such as the production of graphs, see Graphing & Charting.
Components which enable the application to convert documents from one format to another. For example from MS Word format to plain text, or from PDF to HTML. See also PDF Documents
Enable your application to create documents in native file formats such as MS Word, RTF and XLS. See also our PDF Components.
Use these products to build applications with drawing capabilities including building images programatically and enabling users to create and view Computer Aided Design (CAD) drawings. See also our Graphics and Imaging classifications and Diagrams, Diagramming.
Products in this classification support the development of finance related functionality for business components and applications. These components have some domain specific knowledge but do not implement complete solutions or specific business rules.
Using these components your applications can display maps, interact with Global Positioning System (GPS) equipment, assess a user's location and carry out a whole host of other location-based services.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a network of satellites that transmit signals which can be used by receivers to compute their precise location on the planet. Our GPS controls enable geographical positioning capbilities to be added to applications and communications with GPS receivers via serial ports, bluetooth over protocols such as NMEA.
Graphing and charting controls - build applications that produce charts and graphs from statistical, finincial, engineering, scientific and other numeric data. Our components for .NET, COM, VCL and Java can produce all types of business and scientific graphs and charts, including: Line graphs, bar charts, scatter graphs, polar charts. For organisation, flow and workflow diagrams, see Diagrams, Diagramming.
With these products you will be able to add impage processing functionality to your applications whether client or web server based.
These components offer you the ability to perform complex formula evaluations, calculations and statistical analysis. Applications include scientific, engineering and financial.
These product specialize in the processing of high resolution medical images for example from CT and MRI scans and DICOM compliant equipment.
Here are a collection of application service components that could not be grouped meaningfully in any other way.
Enable your application to handle audio and video with our multimedia components. Rip CD's to MP3, convert file formats to WAV, burn CD's. Handle audio playback, control volume and tone. Capture, edit and playback video.
These are tools that provides analysis of data stored in a database. OLAP tools enable users to analyze different dimensions of multidimensional data. For example, it provides time series and trend analysis views. OLAP often is used in data mining.
These PDF components and drivers enable the developer to build applications that can create and manipulate documents compatible with the Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) standard for document interchange. See also Document - Conversion
Create files in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) from within your applications using these components and libraries. PDF is a published specification for reliable document interchange.
Manipulate, Merg, Edit & Split PDF (Adobe Portable Document Format) files from within your applications with these components. Access the pages via page-oriented object models, modify the content and save to disk.
Display Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files within your applications using these contols and libraries. Render PDF files to screen just as they would appear if viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
These components enable the application to deliver a printed representation of data. Some provide representations of UI elements such as grids, others provide a form representation.
Scheduling components enable develpers to create applications with task scheduling and diary management fetures. These products go beyond presentation logic and extend to business logic relating to the management of the schedule.
Following is our list of known search engine components for all platforms. Use these components to integrate a search engine into your application. Index and search multiple document formats, perform complex search operations.
Protect your software against illegal use and enable your evaluations to become full working versions with these anti-piracy components.
Give your applications the ability to carry out spelling checks against user input or database fields.
Add advanced spreadsheet capababilities to your applications. Perform calculations, reference cells with relative and absolute addressing, perform formatting, handle multiple worksheets.
Enable your applications to talk and understand spoken commands with these speech and voice recognition products.
