CouchDB gets the mobile application development treatment

Jack Vaughan
Data architectures continue to evolve. They are in a dramatic state of flux. Web applications and cloud computing have been disrupting things for some time. Now, the rise of smart phones is further shaking the tree. Among the players addressing this emerging field is CouchOne -- the former "Couchio". It has recently unveiled the CouchOne Mobile application development platform based on CouchDB and optimized for mobile devices.

"What I wanted to bring into the modern Web world was a document database that supports replication and schema-less design," said CouchOne CEO Damien Katz, who first created CouchDB, which now has become a top-level Apache project.

Katz, who worked at Iris Research and Lotus Development on Lotus Notes, admits that Notes-style replication capabilities and free-wheeling, schema-less design, were paramount objectives in first creating CouchDB.

Among elements that add to the usefulness of the CouchOne Mobile edition, according to Katz, are replication and sync facilities that adjust to connectivity issues whether the Internet connection is slow, intermittent, or completely down. These same facilities help conserve battery life. At the same time the company announced CouchOne Mobile, it announced its name change from "Couchio" to "CouchOne."
