BreakThruIT to Use Voyager for Next-Generation Mobile Social and Application Framework

Mobile 2.0 Application Framework allows for building wireless applications using AJAX

BreakThruIT will be integrating Recursion Software’s Voyager Edge with its wireless Mobile Social Software applications, and its forthcoming Mobile Application Framework (MAF).

The Voyager Edge platform will be utilized in the wireless version of Forever Young’s initiative, OnceLikeMe, a technology-based mentoring initiative. Voyager will enable OnceLikeMe’s Mobile Social Networking capabilities that incorporate location-aware technology and presence. BreakthruIT will use the next release of Voyager scheduled for Q1, which will add support for the .NET Compact Framework and SIP integration to existing Java, Linux, Windows Mobile and Symbian (CDC) compatibility.

“The current Web and wireless version of OnceLikeMe allows for people to search for mentors based on any combination the following: name, ethnicity, gender, school/university, career and employer as well as interests, personal challenges, family life, community, and responsibilities they experienced both as youths and adults,” stated Jonathan Roberts, Creative Director of OnceLikeMe.

The Mobile 2.0 Application Framework allows for building wireless applications using JME, Web Services, AJAX and the Google Web Toolkit, including Google Maps and Google Earth. Additionally, BreakThruIt will be adding support for Google’s recently announced Open Social capabilities.

“The Mobile Application Framework can be used in the development of any next-generation wireless application, including, of course, social-based applications. MAF business objects are location aware and can be sent to the enterprise wirelessly via Web Services, AJAX, or sent to a peer device or community of ad-hoc peer devices wirelessly. Additionally these MAF Objects can be searched, retrieved, displayed and updated without a wireless connection by using a local database from db4objects,” stated Barrie Slattery, CEO of BreakThruIT. Delivery of the Mobile OnceLikeMe Mentoring Application and the Mobile Application Framework will be in Q1 2008.
