DataDirect SequeLink 5.3. (Data News and Products).

SequeLink 5.3, is a newly enhanced, middleware solution that provides a universal client for ODBC, JDBC, ADO and .NET. It adds new clients for the Microsoft .NET platform and several other new features, including enhanced support for JDBC and XML.

DataDirect Technologies provides I00% Managed Data Providers for .NET across all major databases including Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, Sybase and Informix. In addition, developers can connect to virtually any ODBC-compliant database from a .NET environment using the SequeLink Socket Server.

DataDirect SequeLink's new .NET data providers are written in 100% Managed code and run within the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR) for optimised performance and security. They are tested and certified with Microsoft's .NET test suites to ensure compatibility with Microsoft applications and tools DataDirect SequeLink's support for .NET provides a robust, common architecture with similar interfaces and functionality for all data sources.

This common architecture optimises interoperability across multiple databases and eliminates the need to change code when moving between data sources. It is compliant with the latest JDBC 3.0 specification, allowing developers to take advantage of new JDBC features and performance enhancements.

New capabilities include savepoints for better transaction control, support for ParameterMetaData, new DatabaseMetaData methods, and configurable properties for connection pooling. New support has also been added for updateable result sets and BLOB/CLOB interfaces. Performance enhancements are gained through statement pooling, configurable properties for connection pooling, and a JCA/SPI wrapper Two new development components streamline JDBC development: DataDirect Test for JDBC, a graphical debugging program; and DataDirect Spy for JDBC, a utility for tracing calls.

DataDirect SequeLink can now be used with DataDirect jXTransformer to extend JDBC applications with XML functionality. DataDirect jXTransformer is an XML software component that transforms data between XML and relational formats for any database. DataDirect jXTransformer provides a method for retrieving data from relational databases and transforms that data into any desired complex XML structure. It enables architects and developers to write XML applications once that work across multiple relational databases or with older versions of individual databases with no recompilation necessary.
