  • + Functional details

    BBj Enterprise Edition provides powerful, platform independent client/server and distributed processing. With its Thin Client, running locally over a LAN or remotely over a WAN, either on a stand-alone machine or in a Web browser, applications can be accessed from anywhere. With the Java™-based interpreter, GUI code now runs in the native GUI mode of most any operating system, making it available on UNIX® as well as Microsoft Windows® clients.

    Its server-centric, Java-based data server ensures that whether the user is remote or local, data access is fast and reliable. BBj Standard Edition is the upgrade path for terminal-based, stand-alone, multi-user or single-user Windows systems.
