Paradigma Software announces the release of Valentina Release 7 with features that can dramatically enhance application development for Xojo developers targeting Windows, Mac OS, Linux (x86) and Raspberry Pi (ARM 7, Debian).
Valentina Server 7 is a server solution that combines three different enterprise ready servers into one package for providing advanced database and business analytics technology on Linux (x86 and ARM7 for Raspberry PI), Windows and MacOS X. These three servers include: Valentina Reports Server, for transforming data from many data sources into visually rich reports as web pages, graphics, PDF and more, Valentina DB Server, based on Paradigma Software’s blazingly fast object-relational database technology, and Valentina SQLite Server, which allows developers to scale up their SQLite based applications into a true, client-server or server only application solution.
Valentina ADKs for Xojo and Valentina Server 7 adds the following new features to this robust solution:
- Key-Value Storage. Valentina DB Server and Valentina DB ADK for Xojo now incorporate a key-value storage system that takes advantage of other Valentina DB Server features such as journaling, temporary tables and more.
- Variant Fields. This flexible field type can store variable sized objects of differing types, with optional compression and included in Valentina DB ADK and Valentina Server 7
- Scriptable Report Objects. Report objects, the visual elements of reports served, such as barcodes, charts and graphs have pre- and post- load scripts attached to them; added to Valentina Reports ADK for Xojo and Valentina Server 7
+Improved Bar Codes. New bar-codes include Aztec, DataMatrix, Han Xin, QR and Micro QR formats and can also utilize outline fonts; added to Valentina Reports ADK for Xojo and Valentina Server 7
As a part of the Valentina 7 technology release, Valentina Server 7 works with the database continuous integration tools that are a part of Valentina Studio Pro 7, the ultimate database management and visual reports builder, also released by Paradigma Software. Valentina Server 7 also incorporates numerous performance improvements. Valentina Server is available as a standalone server solution for $299, and as a part of Valentina Developer Network, which allows developers to re-deploy unlimited copies of Valentina Server as a part of their own solutions for $599. Special versions are available at no cost for academic and educational use.
Valentina DB ADK 7 for Xojo ($199) allows developers to incorporate the object-relational Valentina DB into their standalone applications.
Valentina Reports ADK 7 for Xojo ($199) allows developers to build report generation into their applications, and it also incorporates the new reporting features in Server 7, such as the scriptable reports objects, improved bar-codes, more flexible ‘resizing’ controls and more. It allows generation of reports from many data sources including MS SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite and Valentina DB, with reports served as web pages, images, PDF, LateX, email and more.
Both Valentina DB ADK and Valentina Reports ADK include VCLIENT, which allows high level integration with most application and web development environments and languages, including .NET, ODBC, Java, C++, C, Xojo, LiveCode, PHP, Ruby / Ruby on Rails, REST and others. The same VCLIENT system works with Valentina Server.
Valentina Server 7, Valentina Reports ADK 7, and Valentina DB ADK 7 are all immediately available from Paradigma Software and include 12 months of updates at http://www.valentina-db.com.
