The following text is copied from the original source. It describes software I implemented while working at RTI International.

Zcore logoZcore™ is the foundation we use to create easy-to-use data collection and management applications for projects ranging from health care to legal case management. It is well-suited for point-of-care applications. Zcore features easy forms creation, multilingual capabilities, and useful networking and data center integration.

Zcore renders pages into its embedded web browser, which is provided by the Eclipse RCP framework. Data are stored in the application using the embedded Derby database, can be shared with a remote data center via Zcore's built-in synchronization system, can be exported to a MySQL database. and can be exported to other formats, such as Microsoft Excel. Data systems based on Zcore can be used to collect data from remote sites. Using Zcore, these sites can then synchronize their data with a remote, shared database over the Internet and Internet connectivity is present. The result is a scalable, fault-tolerant data sharing network. Projects based on Zcore are deployed in Zambia, Kenya, and South Africa.
