"This release has been designed to help customers increase the overall value of their data, including significant SQL enhancements in syntax and performance, a new graphical user interface (GUI) to increase development productivity, and improved storage capacity to handle large data volumes. The product will also offer new development enhancements that will enable developers to add totally new functionalities to their existing applications like reporting and full text search, which represent exciting new revenue opportunities for software vendors."
New features and functionality in the Pervasive SQL V9 beta release include the following:
Increased Relational Database Performance and Functionality
Pervasive has revamped its SQL engine and expanded syntax support, dramatically improving database performance across SQL access mechanisms, including ADO.Net, JDBC, and ODBC. Highlighted improvements include the following:
* Increased SQL performance to speed application and reporting performance
* New system stored procedures that improve productivity by providing the metadata required to enhance applications
* User-defined functions for inserting application and business logic into the database
Faster Time to Market Pervasive has added new Java-based Pervasive utilities that will help accelerate development productivity. Through smart design, Pervasive.SQL Server will make it fast and easy for customers to reap the benefits of state- of-the-art database management technologies, and to gain competitive advantage through rapid delivery of applications, with features such as the following:
* A new, easy-to-use Pervasive.SQL Control Center, to improve management of Pervasive.SQL
* Simpler tools to create and maintain database capabilities, including triggers and user-defined functions, making it easier to manage database code
* A new SQL outline view, to improve usability of large SQL scripts
* Easier to understand and manage configuration options
Improved Scalability and Reliability Pervasive.SQL has doubled its storage capacity and added core product enhancements that increase the ability to deal with large volumes of data. Highlights include the following:
* Twice the capacity for Pervasive.SQL files (up to 128 GB file support)
* Ability to store large files (over 2 GB) as one, for fewer files to manage
"As part of Pervasive's Inner Circle Program, Summit Software has been working with Pervasive for several months and is very excited about the increased performance, scalability, and the intuitive new interface that will improve our development efforts," said Sean Flanagan, president of Summit Software and a Pervasive customer for more than seven years. "We look forward to supporting Pervasive.SQL V9 with our applications."
Additional Development Enhancements
Pervasive will also deliver two important supplementary capabilities whose development enhancements will both reduce development time and provide new revenue creation opportunities for software vendors. With reporting capabilities for legacy applications with no metadata, DDF Builder 4.0 will help developers create and maintain Pervasive.SQL metadata and locate data faster within Pervasive.SQL. Developers can also take advantage of a new capability to locate information within Pervasive data files (in addition to Btrieve and SQL access) with Pervasive Full Text Search 1.0. Both will be available for preview following the release of Pervasive.SQL V9.
