[From eWeek]

AppForge Inc. and iAnywhere Solutions Inc. are sharing mobile database technology to make the development of cross-platform, enterprise-class applications for handheld computing devices quicker and easier.

Atlanta-based AppForge integrated iAnywhere's SQL Anywhere Studio mobile software into Version 4.0 of its own MobileVB development environment, which the two companies demonstrated last week at Comdex, in Las Vegas.

At the same time, iAnywhere, a subsidiary of Sybase Inc., in Dublin, Calif., released SQL Anywhere Studio 8.0.2, an update of its mobile data management and enterprise synchronization software.

SQL Anywhere Studio 8.0.2 features the new UltraLite Component Suite, a database deployment option for small computing devices, such as PDAs (personal digital assistants), that could support databases of about 50KB to 100KB. UltraLite will be included in MobileVB 4.0.
