Additional Release 4 Documentation:
This manual is one of a set of jBASE manuals, which are intended for use by System Administrators, developers and other end users who might need guidance or instruction on various languages, applications and/or front end systems which jBASE provides. If you have never used or are not familiar with jBASE, we recommend that you read the Overview Guide to familiarize yourself with
jEDI Development Kit User Guide
The jBASE database adheres to a specific model of the Reality/PICK database storing records as dynamic arrays in hashed files. You can view these records in a manner similar to SQL using jQL (jBASE's version of the ENGLISH/ACCESS query language from Reality/PICK). However, as the jBASE query language is not (currently) ANSI SQL compliant, there are those who feel he need to use a relational database (RDBMS). With the development of the jEDI architecture in jBASE, the ability to use any database to store records was made possible. The problem for most (if not all) jBASE users is mapping their existing record structure to the RDBMS. The jEDI Development Kit (jDK) attempts to automate this process as much as possible. There are several drivers which work in conjunction with the jDK. These drivers work with their own specific RDBMS but rely on jDK to generate the mapping between the dynamic array on the jBASE side and the column tables on the RDBMS side. This manual is split into two main sections. The first section provides generic information that is relevant to all jEDI Development Kits. The second section provides detailed information specific to particular jDK drivers.
jEDI Programmer's Guide
This Guide describes how a third party software provider can write a new database driver and interface it to existing jBASE applications. This is provided through the jEDI API (jBASE External Database Interface). It allows an application that performs its database requests through jEDI to access databases not directly supported by jEDI itself.
