Magic Software, Not Enchanted As Such


Magic Software has launched the next version of its multi-channel application development platform, known as xpa 2.5. Not actually fuelled by any real or tangible enchanted forces, Magic has adopted the company name and brand moniker merely for marketing recognition purposes.

Magic xpa 2.5 joins a new Mobile Accelerator Framework. This development and deployment environment has new form animation and color options, enhanced navigation features (including native tab bars and navigation drawers), support for customized keyboards, and additional native controls.

The Mobile Accelerator Framework includes pre-built component-based development modules and best practices. The reusable components are hoped to speed development and reduce resources required to create multi-platform mobile applications.

Developers will find streamlined integration between the firm's platform and native code to let developers add more native capabilities. Developers can add push notifications across iOS and Android devices. The product is compatible with latest database versions (e.g. Oracle 12) and technologies (e.g. message queuing services).

Magic Mobile Accelerator Framework contains standard components for a wide variety of important features, including: User Interface and Display, Navigation, Graphs and Charting, Location Services, Synchronization, Device and Application Auditing, etc.
