EXTENDED SYSTEMS INTRODUCES ADVANTAGE DATABASE SERVER 5.5.

Extended Systems (Nasdaq/NMS:XTND), Boise, Idaho, has introduced Advantage Database Server 5.5 with StreamlineSQL.

The embedded database server integrated SQL solution is fast, efficient and effective. It costs less than competing products and does not require a database administrator to maintain, even though SQL support has been added. This has been achieved, according to Advantage Business Unit manager Pat Sheridan, by focusing product design and functionality implementation on performance and stability. "Performance is king," said Sheridan. "We don't build anything into Advantage that is going to bog down the server. Our goal is to save developers time and money by giving them a product that runs lean and fast."

Integrated SQL capabilities were added to the Advantage core navigational client/server engine through Extended Systems' new StreamlineSQL technology. The SQL engine handles a subset of ANSI-92 SQL grammar and comes with interfaces designed for specific development environments including Delphi, C++Builder, CA-Clipper, CA-Visual Objects, Microsoft Visual Basic, Microsoft Visual C/C++, Microsoft Visual FoxPro and FoxPro 2.6.

Optimum performance is ensured by core functions such as row level locking for fast update concurrency, multiple user read-through locking for superior reading concurrency, and small footprint and memory requirements.

Advantage Database Server 5.5 with StreamlineSQL:

-- Native SQL on the remote and local server

-- A TDataSet descendant with functionality equivalent to TQuery and TTable

-- Stronger table and record encryption to protect data from prying eyes

-- Memo recycling to efficiently re-use file space

-- Royalty-free distribution for local and shared environments

-- Database administrator not required for maintenance

Advantage Database Server 5.5 is scheduled to begin shipping the second week of August. Prices range from $615 for the five-user version to $7,495 for the 1000-user version (U.S. and Canada). Call 1-800-235-7576 for product information or visit the Advantage Web site at www.AdvantageDatabase.com.
