Web Browser Development Using Microsoft Silverlight & Bluefinity's mv.NET
Microsoft's Silverlight technology opens up a huge door of opportunity for developers to create sophisticated, professional browser-based interfaces to their existing or new MultiValue applications in astonishingly fast timescales.

Silverlight allows you to create applications that look and feel like desktop or rich-client applications except they run inside a Web browser.  What's more, you create Silverlight applications using a single industry standard development environment - Visual Studio.  All the headache of managing application state, coding in JavaScript and managing Ajax communications is a thing of the past. 

mv.NET from BlueFinity gives MultiValue developers everything they need to link their existing MultiValue data and programs to this fantastic Silverlight environment.

Bonus Demonstration

Learn how to pull MultiValue data into Microsoft SQL Server! BlueFinity’s mv.SSIS allows MultiValue data to be consumed by Microsoft's SSIS data importation environment, which is included with SQL Server.  SSIS is a platform for building enterprise-level data integration and data transformations solutions to allow data from diverse sources to be imported into SQL Server. It is a strategic Microsoft product with millions of dollars invested in development.  See how to quickly and easily build an SSIS package to move MultiValue data into SQL Server.

About D3

D3, part of the Rocket MultiValue Application Development Platform, is the choice of more than a thousand application developers world-wide, serving top industries including manufacturing, distribution, healthcare, government, retail, and other vertical markets. Boasting both stability and security, the D3 data server engine offers superior performance, high availability, and low administrative overhead.

Ease of Use and ROI Drive Loyalty

D3 provides software developers with all the necessary tools to quickly adapt to changes and build critical business applications in a fraction of the time as compared to other databases; without compromising data integrity and with low administration costs. For creating real-world applications, D3 manages information in a way that has proven vastly superior to other database schemas.

Performance Your Application Can Harness

D3 delivers high performance via efficient file management that requires minimal system and memory resources. Based on a true 64-bit architecture, D3 applications provide high performance at both the hardware and application level. The 64-bit version of D3 provides larger addressing space per process, larger core memory and overall enhanced application performance.

Security at Multiple Levels

By enhancing security, a continuous goal at Rocket, D3 boasts modern features such as SSL support, which makes D3 application data in transit more secure.

  • At the application level, for data at rest, D3 provides both file level and field level encryption, making the data secure at any level.
  • D3 also supports IPv6, so our customers and partners apps benefit from a more secure internet protocol that runs end-to-end encryption, making man in the middle attacks significantly more difficult. Plus, IPv6 supports more secure name resolution, delivering an improved level of trust.
  • By harnessing local authentication and LDAP, weve added single sign on which not only improves user experience, but also allows users to move between systems securely without typing their credentials each time.

About jBASE

What is jBASE?

jBASE is a database and a set of programs and libraries that allows normal MultiValue (MV) applications to become native Windows, Unix or Linux programs. All of the traditional MV features are supported, including BASIC, Proc, Paragraph, Query and Dictionaries (Pick and Prime style).

What are the benefits of jBASE?

Because existing MV apps are converted to native executables and shared objects, they run fast and take advantage of the latest compiler optimizations available for Windows, Unix and Linux platforms.

Flexible licensing models support cost-effective application deployment for traditional character-based applications and include models suited for efficient deployment of web and graphical-based applications.

A key differentiator is that jBASE architecture tends to make sense to technical hires who may not have prior MV experience. jBASE organizes itself much like other mainstream applications, with full support for pathing and threading. Because it is native, business objects created in jBASE, even those based on legacy code, can be wrapped with other languages. jBASE is a platform that respects the investments made in custom-built legacy apps while allowing non-MV programmers to build next-generation applications using the latest design tools and methods.

jBASE also has one of the lowest support and maintenance costs among enterprise-level MV databases.

Who actually controls jBASE?

In 2015, Zumasys purchased the jBASE intellectual property and development from Temenos, as well as jBASE sales and support from MPower1. Zumasys now controls and markets jBASE internationally with full time developers located in England and North America. jBASE interested us not just because of its worldwide install-base of loyal customers but also because it is a technology that will utilize the Zumasys Cloud to help those customers move to a SaaS business model. We can serve up MV applications running on a multi-tenanted database architecture with unrivaled price and performance and include unique features such as browser-based access.

What does the future hold for jBASE?

Being a native architecture, the future for jBASE is bright. Advancements in technology outside of jBASE tend to benefit jBASE simply because it has a native architecture. This leaves our engineers with time to focus on internal feature and functions and leave other work such as performance tuning and connectivity to vendors of operating systems.

Developers can continue to develop using traditional MV languages and data or choose to develop in new languages. They can choose whether data should be stored in traditional high-performance MV files or in virtually any other database, such as SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 or modern object data stores and noSQL databases.

About UniData

A MultiValue application platform for developing fast, flexible and secure applications

Organizations rely on Rocket UniData, a best-in-class of the MultiValue application platform, for scalable business apps that can evolve as needs change. As a stable, secure, fast data server engine with high availability and low administrative overhead, Rocket UniData is ideal for rapid development using modern tools. On-premises or in the cloud, UniData serves nearly a million users worldwide.

Performance by design

  • A unique and resilient architecture delivers performance advantages compared to traditional SQL databases
  • variable length records and tables within tables simplifies database design, eliminating the constraints of SQL normalization
  • using direct-read capabilities that result in fewer I/O operations than required by SQL, UniData is faster than many other databases
  • variable length records mean less data is transmitted within the entirety of the system which translates to:
    • more responsive mobile applications
    • more efficient replication (for disaster recovery, high availability and more)
  • Rapid development means rapid returns

    UniData includes multiple, easy-to-use programming languages (including Python) with multiple standard supplied interfaces (Node.js, .NET, Java, ODBC, JDBC, RESTful via JSON) for multi-tier solutions. Accelerate your teams productivity by selecting the best development tools based upon your staffs capabilities.

    Security is paramount

    Rocket embeds the most effective security standards for encryption technology deep within the data server, so your data is secure no matter its location, and whether in-transit or stored on disk.

    • SSL/TLS secures connections to the MultiValue server and encrypts data in transit for protection from snooping or eavesdropping. Third parties can also validate and accredit our cryptographic modules for FIPS 140-2 compliance.
    • Automatic data encryption ensures only trusted users with the encryption key can view data. Stolen data is rendered useless without the encryption key.
    • UniData also offers role-based security for users accessing the application. Required DBA maintenance to implement and maintain these capabilities is simple and efficient.
