In Flex2SQL v15, we introduced the ability to use parameterized queries within your DataFlex application’s embedded SQL calls. Developers have been asking for this feature for a long time, and for good reason.
In Flex2SQL Version 15, we added support for sending your application's trace output to the Windows Debug Output.
Flex2SQL for Microsoft SQL Server allows developers to use either client-side or server-side cursors in their embedded SQL queries. In Flex2SQL Version 15, we significantly improved these queries' performance, so your DataFlex app can conduct embedded SQL queries even more quickly.
Flex2SQL’s recent Version 15 release includes a series of exciting, asked-for new features, plus a significant performance increase in embedded SQL calls - up to 5 times faster than previous versions!
With the May 25th deadline looming closer, it’s easy to find resources on the topic of the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation and what it will mean for organizations around the globe. In fact, a search query now yields so many results that it becomes overwhelming trying to sort through them all; some facts are repeated over and over, while other questions seem to go unanswered no matter how you search for them.
Flex2SQL Build 14.1.7263.0 is now available for download. This in-line build adds support for MS SQL Server 2016. Since this is a SQL Server major upgrade, users will require a new update license code to access the database.
The Mertech Structure Analyzer is a new open-source tool that gives DataFlex developers the ability to dynamically describe and access data structures.
When dealing with structures, DataFlex developers often want to be able to dump or load a structure to XML or some other format. DataFlex has support for turning a structure into what is called a ValueTree, which are quite useful when you're trying to iterate over structured data.
Mertech Data Systems, the leading provider of high-performance ISAM to SQL Database Connectivity (ISDBC) drivers, is pleased to announce the final release of Flex2SQL Version 14.0, which significantly improves efficiency and performance for DataFlex developers.
For many years, the Mertech drivers have had a chunking BLOB interface for interacting with (B)inary (L)arge (OB)jects. This interface was made up of two basic methods of interacting with a BLOB: Load From File, and Chunked access. The Load from File method allowed a locally stored file to be written into a column using a Mertech command.
Mertech is pleased to announce the availability of the next version of our Flex2SQL product, v14, as a Release Candidate.
This release candidate contains many enhancements that will improve the flexibility and productivity of DataFlex developers when using the Mertech drivers.
New features include:
