Raima, a provider of database management system technology for both in-memory database usage and persistent storage devices, has announced the availability of Raima Database Manager (RDM) version 12.0, optimized for embedded, real-time, in memory and mobile applications. .
The introduction of data cursors to the standard library improves the programming interface to the database, allowing programmers to have a natural multi-cursor view for navigation, queries and updates. RDM 12.0 also improves performance with same-computer clients through the addition of shared memory as a transport for communication between the application and the Transactional File Server, enabling data to be transferred much more quickly than via TCP/IP.
To improve stability on resource-constrained systems, RDM 12.0 now includes a function that caps memory allocation, limiting the memory that can be used by the runtime library and database processes, with an optional pointer to pre-allocated memory. Further improvements include enhanced SQL functionality to improve SQL performance; and the addition of three new native data types: date/time/timestamp, BCD and GUID.
