Openness


Upright Database Technology is committed to conforming to the relational database standards defined by organizations such as ANSI, ISO and The Open Group. Upright Database Technology's policy means that Mimer SQL has a unique openness towards independent development and middleware tools. In turn this ensures application portability and interoperability, protecting your development investment.

Mimer SQL provides a high-performance native ODBC 3.0 driver and a 100% Pure Java JDBC Level 1, Type 4 driver. Through these interfaces a large number of web-based and Windows-based development tools can be used together with Mimer SQL (e.g. Tango, Delphi, Visual Basic, Access, Centura and many more). Mimer SQL is also compliant with many CORBA- and Object Transaction Monitor-based middleware products (e.g. BEA's WebLogic and Inprise's Application Server).

The JDBC and ODBC interfaces are tightly integrated into the database engine, providing excellent performance.

By using Mimer SQL's standardized Embedded SQL interfaces for C, COBOL and FORTRAN, it is possible to develop portable 3GL applications. Also supported are the SQL standards for constructing SQL statements during program execution (Dynamic SQL), allowing ad-hoc querying of the database from applications.

The programming interfaces to Mimer SQL are multithreaded. A multithreaded application is an alternative to making asynchronous calls to perform multiple calls in parallel. A thread can make a synchronous call, and other threads can be processed while the first thread is blocked waiting for the response to its call. This model is more efficient than making asynchronous calls because it eliminates overheads such as network traffic and repeated calls testing whether a function is still executing.
