jBASE is officially certified for Docker containers. With a single command, you can pull down a working jBASE image from the Docker Hub and have your jBASE application up and running in a standalone container. Server setups that used to take days can now be accomplished in seconds—it really is that easy.
We are extremely excited to announce support for MongoDB in jBASE 5.8 thanks to a brand-new addition to the jEDI (jBASE External Device Interface) driver family! MongoDB is the world’s most popular NoSQL database used by the likes of Facebook and Twitter that has revolutionized the conversation around database interoperability.
In response to high demand from larger customers who leverage phantoms and web interfaces, we are proud to announce a new option for CPU licensing and self-activation. You can still purchase a set number of user licenses; however, you can also buy by the number of cores you are using. This is ideal for next-generation applications that could benefit from unlimited users and background processes.
jBASE now ships with a series of APIs that utilize the standard cURL library and is easily extendable using our Dynamic Objects. While it is correct to say jBASE has always allowed you to use native cURL to consume REST APIs, we now keep socket connections open to issue multiple commands, vastly improving performance and removing manual and tedious processes.
One of the many unique benefits of jBASE is that it allows your application to run as a native Windows or native Linux program. Unlike all other MultiValue platform, we remove the interpretive layer between the database, so you run in line with the hardware. This allows us to be more open, approachable for younger developers and extremely fast.
If you are an avid user of jBASE, you will recognize Objects from our 5.7 release. In this new release, we have added support for exception handling including try/catch/throw constructs, made it easier to update objects and other enhancements that make life easier for developers who want to write Object Oriented code with PICK BASIC.
“We rewrote two of the busiest pages on our site to use a web service driven by dynamic objects/JSON instead of XML mixed in BASIC and it is night and day as far as arrays, code size, self-documentation.”
“The speed improvements with jBASE are insane.”
“After migrating to jBASE, we were showing the new system to a customer, and suddenly there was dead silence on the other end of the phone. They could not believe how fast and intuitive everything was compared to our previous solution.”
“We chose jBASE for its modern architecture, object orientation and native integration with Linux. jBASE is part of a global modernization strategy which makes our application more approachable for modern developers and easier to integrate with today’s APIs and SaaS applications.”
“The speed of jBASE is incredible and we are very pleased with our decision to partner with Zumasys. We are in a much better place in terms of support, performance and redundancy and we are excited about the future of our SHIMS application on the jBASE platform.”
“Our Company converted from Universe on AIX to a Linux server running jBASE. Since we’ve converted, our local users and branch managers at remote locations have commented on the increase in speed. In addition to the increase in speed, we’ve moved away from older technology and hardware onto a platform that is going to be supported for a long time. It was a good decision for us.”
