Rocket Software Releases Enhanced Version of Rocket jBASE with Upgraded Security Features

Rocket Software is releasing jBASE 6.1.1, introducing new security features and more than 22 bug fixes.

The Rocket jBASE solution is an object-oriented integrated database and application development environment designed for transactional and analytical database applications.

By combining scalable, flexible, seamless interoperability with connectivity, Rocket jBASE provides customers with low overhead for easier system management and administration, according to the company.

“We’re encouraging our customers to upgrade to jBASE 6.1.1 so they can gain the benefits from its new security compliance, Open SSL 3.0 support, and more including 22-plus bug fixes,” said Hunter Holmes, Rocket Software associate product manager.

Polaris, one of Rocket Software’s robust third-party security scan suites, sets a standard for all future jBASE releases. jBASE 6.1.1 provides improved data security and reliance and mitigates over 300 risks in accordance with the Polaris assessment metrics.

In addition to being available on various versions of Microsoft Windows and IBM AIX flavors, Rocket Software has also certified jBASE 6.1.1 on Red Hat Linux 9 with support for Open SSL 3.0. For IBM AIX, due to external licensing changes, jBASE 6.1.1 supports Clang, a free version of the C++ compiler, explained Holmes.

Developing secure, high-quality software is a top priority at Rocket Software. The company is committed to meeting top standards in these categories and its software adheres to standards set by some of the leading software scans such as Synopsys Black Duck, Polaris, and VeraCode with each release, according to the company.

Rocket Software acquired the Zumasys product portfolio on Oct 14, 2021. Starting with the jBASE 5.8.6 release, the Rocket Software MultiValue R&D team integrated these scans into the release process. Zumasys did not conform to the same security and quality practices hence any release prior to 5.8.6 does not align with Rocket Software's standards.

Rocket Software hosts a free jBASE forum where users can collaborate with other users and Rocket engineers.
