jBASE provides a multidimensional database, a dev environment and a middleware component. The unique jEDI middleware enables access to other databases such as Oracle/DB2/SQL Server. Windows/all major Unix/Linux platforms are supported. jBASE is three separate parts that can be used independently but when used together provide a superb technological platform to base future application development
Application Dev Environment. The Basic language (jBC) is the traditional language for developing applications in jBASE. jBC while loosely based on Dartmouth Basic, has been greatly enhanced for the multidimensional database architecture. Also includes interface products, which provide similar capabilities to jBC but can be used from different dev environments. Called jBASE ObjEX these provide an interface from Microsoft's COM and Java. The COM based OBjEX allows access to the jBASE database and application dev environment from such products as Visual Basic and Delphi as well as products that support Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) including Microsoft Office Suite. jBASE OBjEX provides a similar capability for Java based dev tools, such as Visual Age for Java, Cold Fusion, etc
Middleware - takes software developed in an ADE, (not necessarily jBC), and provides the ability to access a database, which may not necessarily be the jBASE database. The most important part of the jBASE middleware component is the jEDI, which is a layer of software that is used by all Input and Output operations within the jBASE system. No matter what method an application uses to access the jBASE I/O mechanism the code used is identical
Database Management System. It is a Non First Normal Form database. This means tables can be embedded within other tables. This removes the necessity of having to perform the extremely resource hungry joins of the traditional Relational model. jBASE provides very efficient support for multi-user applications and includes a comprehensive locking mechanism
jBASE is a free trial software application from the Databases & Tools subcategory, part of the Business category.
