A Little Something from FairCom
From time to time we like to give a little something extra to say “thank you” to our loyal customers. As you probably know, FairCom engineers are again hard at work on our next major release, Version 11, and they have breakthrough technology in store. V11 is shaping up to be the most important release FairCom has produced to date. (Stay Tuned throughout 2015!)
Some features are just so big and already jumping around in the box they simply can’t wait for an official V11 release. So, we have decided to make these small “stocking stuffers” available upon request to FairCom customers with up-to-date maintenance agreements. Happy Holidays!
Entity Framework 6
Support has been added to the c‑treeACE ADO.NET Provider for Entity Framework 6 (EF6). EF6 is compatible with Microsoft .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010.
Microsoft added numerous enhancements with EF6. It is now a standalone package that can be added to other projects as needed. Enhancements include faster opening of context objects when many tables and relationships are defined. The framework can be customized, the code can be configured, and requests can be configured.
NetBeans Plug-in for Java
NetBeans is a complete and easy-to-use IDE for Java developers, which provides a natural framework for Java stored procedure development. FairCom now provides a NetBeans plug-in enhancing stored procedure development and testing. It includes modern features such as syntax checking and in-line debugging.
This plug-in allows developers to compile and test Java stored procedures via a client-side interface and deploy the final code to the server. Debugging within the IDE is possible by retrieving the source code from the server. It is not necessary to provide a full JDK on the server as development can now be centralized at the developer workstation.
In keeping with the “timely” theme of this eNewsletter, support for time with millisecond precision is being implemented in c‑treeDB and c‑treeACE SQL.
c‑treeACE SQL will support time with millisecond precision on newly created tables.
Support is being added for a timestamp value with millisecond resolution, CT_TIMES_MS. Backward compatibility will be preserved as much as possible: The record schema is stored in the new format only if the record schema uses data types in the new range. Clients and servers that support the new data type send the appropriate record schema format based on the data types supported by the recipient.
