Objectivity Announces Early Support for .Net/C#; Objectivity/DB Supports a High Speed, Fully Interoperable .NET/C# Interface.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- As commercial market acceptance grows for its real-time data management solutions for complex inter-related data, Objectivity, Inc. today announces that it has developed a fully interoperable, native .NET/C# Application Programming Interface (API) for Objectivity/DB. The product, formally labeled Objectivity/.NET for C#, is being certified for use with .NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.

Objectivity, Inc. markets Objectivity/DB to ISVs, OEMs and end-users for real-time processing of complex information, document and process management, scientific computing and complex defense and security applications. Objectivity's customers develop solutions built on the Objectivity/DB platform for the government, telecommunications, Internet infrastructure, manufacturing, biotechnology, financial services, scientific and IT markets. Objectivity/DB intrinsic features include its scalability, high availability, performance and interoperability, supporting customers with a business need for high performance and handling complex data relationships.

Better Connectivity and Scalable Queries

This new binding uses the C++/CLI managed interface directly linked with the multi-language Objectivity/DB kernel, rather than using the message based approach provided by several other database products. C#, C++, Java, Smalltalk and Objectivity/SQL++ can all share the same underlying persistent objects in the Objectivity/DB database.

Objectivity/.NET for C# includes a managed library of Objectivity/DB access methods that can be invoked from C# (or any .NET language), and also provides automatic C# code generation for persistent class definitions. Distributed applications written in C++ can migrate easily to C# by changing the application layer. There is no need to change the schema or existing data.

"The new APIs will make it easier for developers using .NET or doing rapid prototyping to use Objectivity/DB as their main database," said Jacques Darakdjian, vice president of engineering at Objectivity, Inc. "Objectivity/.NET for C# eliminates the mapping between C# and traditional databases, which both improves performance and reduces development effort," he added.

"Naturally, some languages will have limitations in the standard constructs they can use (e.g. Java doesn't allow embedded types), but the Active Schema framework can be used to help resolve the differences," said Leon Guzenda, chief technology officer at Objectivity, Inc. "The advantage of directly linking the new interface with the existing kernel is that the performance is much better than message-based alternatives. Initial tests have shown it to have performance close to that of the Objectivity/DB for C++ interface."

"We saw a sharp increase in customer demand for a .NET/C# interface about a year ago, so we responded by producing a high performance, reliable interface for it," states Jay Jarrell, president and CEO at Objectivity, Inc. "This and other upcoming announcements will maintain the position of Objectivity/DB as the leading platform for high performance, distributed applications that use complex data."
