Announcing c-treeACE V10.3
FairCom proudly announces the latest edition of c‑treeACE database technology: V10.3. Built upon the proven V10 release, this update continues a steady progression of improvements putting your application ahead of the competition.
This FairCom eNewsletter is devoted to the new V10.3 c‑treeACE release. Here you will learn about the many new features and improvements, including:
New Compression Options Save Space – Newly introduced high-performance Run Length Encoding (RLE) outperforms zlib compression in many cases, notably sparsely populated records containing extensive space or zero padding. User-defined compression is also available using a library you provide. With this custom capability, FairCom again brings unique solutions to your unique data challenges.
Shared Memory Advances Boost Performance – V10 introduced Shared Memory support for Unix and Linux systems greatly improving localhost application performance. V10.3 further improves Shared Memory functioning and performance for improved reliability.
Batch Updates Improve Efficiency – c‑treeACE batch operations greatly improve performance for processing large numbers of related records in a single call. V10.3 completes the mix of database operation modes with Update Batches. Now you can Read, Add, Delete AND Update records using only these four calls!
Reduced SQL Limitations – SQL statement length limits are essentially eliminated allowing nearly unlimited statement constructs (up to 32MB) for your most demanding SQL queries. Enhancing security, system tables are now encrypted by default to protect your database meta data.
Graphical Tools for Every Platform – c‑treeACE graphical tools for database management remain a huge hit since their introduction in V9. Originally available only for Windows, V10.3 extends platform support with all previous functionality now in a 100% Java based tool. Developers and administrators can leverage these tools on any platform supporting c‑treeACE and Java. Functionality of prior individual tools are now combined into two new powerful tools:
- c‑treeACE Explorer – View and edit both SQL and ISAM databases
- c‑treeACE Monitor – Graphically monitor your c‑treeACE environment via gauges over hundreds of statistics
More Power Under the Hood – V10.3 extensively overhauls the internal SQL temporary memory allocation engine greatly improving performance and stability with large complex queries. This removes several static configuration options previously required for many SQL users. Faster than ever, FairCom includes many other overall performance improvements…especially apparent when scaling across concurrent users on multi-CPU systems.
We hope you are as excited with this release as we are!
