Objectivity, Inc., today announces the newest release of its database platform, Objectivity/DB Release 10. This major release offers new features for the Microsoft C# .NET and Java developer communities, continued robust support for Python and Smalltalk programmers, as well as many administrative tools enhancing ease of operation and deployment. Developers and administrators building and managing applications for embedded devices, complex manufacturing, scientific and engineering markets, and others will benefit from the enhanced feature set.

Objectivity/DB supports computing across distributed networks or can be embedded in stand-alone devices that simply must not fail. It enables persistent object management and virtually instantaneous traversal of complex, many-to-many relationships plus graphs, and much more. It delivers complete C# language and .NET platform support and interoperability with other Objectivity/DB supported languages such as C++, Java, Python, and Smalltalk).

"Our new comprehensive support for the C# .Net and Java APIs enables developers using those advanced software engineering languages to have access to the full breadth of capabilities of Objectivity/DB," said Scott Miller, director, development and technical publications for Objectivity, Inc. "We solve problems that other traditional technologies simply cannot, including real-time analysis and decision support, traversal of complex relationships from virtually any number, size and types of data sources, scaling across distributed servers with little or no administrative overhead, and much more."

New features include:


Objectivity/DB 10 also provides robust query support and capabilities that significantly reduce development time. User-friendly performance analysis, upgrade support, database management, failover and disaster recovery tools, along with an improved debugging toolkit, combine to enhance management of common administrative, operational and deployment tasks.

"The Objectivity/DB platform enables Objectivity's customers and their end-users to collect and process ever increasing quantities of data from a growing number of sources to understand complicated inter-relationships and quickly recognize patterns," adds Miller. "Objectivity/DB provides a reliable, virtually infinitely scalable data repository and data management layer enabling some of the most complex applications and systems used today. The Objectivity/DB platform is highly optimized for performance and throughput in systems that handle highly interconnected data."
