jBASE 5 is a true 64 bit implementation offering non-stop capability in the database. The benefits of the new release include all the advantages that 64 bit runtime will provide, such as those relating to file sizes and memory allocation restrictions. In addition, there are specific features that aid development and non-stop computing.
With non-stop processing abilities available on the application side, it was natural that clients would want to have non-stop abilities embedded as part of the jBASE database too, rather than rely on the hardware failover abilities alone. In order to do this, the following features are being delivered with jBASE 5. They are collectively known as the jBASE Dataguard suite. This collection of technologies allows jBASE to be truly non-stop as a technology platform.
