Handy Application Maker (H.A.M.-) is a Maintainable, Expandable, and Reliable (M.E.R.) Database Software Creator. It aids software developers to produce quality database software without coding. It auto generates forms to process (add, edit, delete, search) records, filter and sort records, view records in tabular format, and print reports, with or without programming knowledge. It is a rapid application development (RAD) tool for building RDBMS (Relational Database Management Software).
H.A.M.-M.E.R. provides a quick and easy way to start a software project. It provides set of tools to create database tables and fields). Developers create, modify or upgrade the custom-built software to suit the business needs. It shorten the time of coding and testing phase in the software engineering model. Furthermore, it reduces the complexity of the process of creating, modifying and upgrading a custom-built program. It saves a lot of time and resources, and it is fast for new modules development.
H.A.M.-M.E.R. can run on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS. It is multi-platform supported, built purely by Java. It works with both commercial and open source database that are JDBC supported. Such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server, and open source database like PostgreSQL, MySQL, Apache Derby, HSQLDB, etc. Currently MySQL, PostgreSQL, and HSQLDB have been tested.
H.A.M.-M.E.R. contains 2 modules: Admin and Client-Program. The first module is the Forms Builder, a place to make various forms to handle records. It is the program designer place. The second part of H.A.M.-M.E.R. is the Main Program Interface, also known as client program. It is the final software that delivered to your customer. These modules coordinate and cooperate to give full support for software developers to built robust, reliable high quality software. More details are covered in later chapters.
