DBMaker (full installation) v3.7 Description:
DBMaker has a native ODBC interface, multimedia handling, efficient data access routines, and cross-platform support. Since the ODBC API and multimedia handling are built right into the engine, applications have direct access to conventional and multimedia data, without the need for extra layers of software. It also has built-in international language support for Chinese and Japanese languages.
To optimize speed and concurrency on data accessed by multiple users, DBMaker dynamically adjusts between table, page, and row locking levels. The automatic cost-based query optimizer means query results are returned in the shortest possible time. The use of multiple journal files also increases access speed, improves efficiency of disk space usage, and drastically cuts the time required for incremental backups. In addition to these features, DBMaker uses multi-threading where possible for improved performance on SMP systems.
