BlueFinity International, a member of the Mpower1 Group of Companies, has announced the general availability of the latest version of mv.NET Version 4, its toolset designed for creating Microsoft .NET-based applications requiring access to MultiValue databases. mv.NET provides a 100% native .NET interface to all major MultiValue database platforms allowing .NET developers to access all aspects of the MultiValue system (both data and program code) from within the .NET application. It also offers end-user capabilities that allow the developer to rapidly create feature-rich, high performance applications using the tools provided by Microsoft's .NET environment.
Version 4.0 of mv.NET extends support for newer operating system platforms and .NET frameworks along with enhanced support for various foreign language-based Windows installations. The launch of Version 4 also introduces a new product called mv.SSIS, a SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS) component which provides complete integration of the mv.NET ADO.NET provider with the SSIS environment. This allows drag-and-drop creation of standard SSIS packages within the SSIS design studio, providing seamless transfer of data between MultiValue databases and SQL.
“The mv.SSIS product follows in the footsteps of its other sibling BlueFinity products by providing the SSIS developer with a tightly integrated, natural extension to the native SSIS environment allowing them to seamlessly incorporate MultiValue data sources into their existing or new SSIS workflow packages,” explains Pete Loveless, CEO of BlueFinity International. “It effectively opens up the entire SQL Server set of tools and utilities to MultiValue database users."
Along with support for both 32- and 64-bit operating system platforms, mv.NET Version 4 includes support for Framework 2.0 as well as 3.5. “BlueFinity is committed to enabling both frameworks to coexist and to providing ongoing support for new versions of the .NET Framework,” says Loveless.
Other enhancements include support for Visual Studio 2008, a socket connectivity option for D3 databases, and performance enhancements to the Session Manager which reduces the connection/session allocation overhead and results in even quicker session allocation performance for client applications. “The new Version 4 release lays some important foundations for a number of very exciting product developments in 2009,” observes David Cooper, lead developer at BlueFinity.
BlueFinity is planning a one-day technical seminar in Denver, Colo., on Friday, March 27 at the Westin Westminster Hotel to showcase the product set. More information is available on the BlueFinity website. A detailed list of Version 4 enhancements as well as access to webinars and evaluations of BlueFinity products is also available at the Blue Finity website.
