    Default RELEASE! The Database Update Framework is released today.

    Today, we are proudly releasing the Database Update Framework.

    Watch a short animated video about the release here.

    What is it?

    It is a code based framework for making automated database updates at client sites. The framework consists of a series of classes, a function library and two tool programs. The function library has messages that makes it easy to update databases for both the DataFlex Embedded and SQL databases. When a new version of your software is started at client site the database update starts automatically and all other users are locked out from using the program while the update is in progress. A series of checks are done prior starting the database update to ensure that nobody else is using it. All activities are automatically logged.

    There is another short (1 minute 30 secs) animation about the framework here

    Or read the online version of the help here

    You can download the framework here. It installs a library and a help file that integrates with the Studio Help system. It also installs two utility programs to the Studio's Tools menu.

    The framework is available absolutely free of charge in the hope that we together can make it even better by adding new functions and make it grow for all sorts of database update needs, even though it is quite comprehensive as is with about 80 various functions. It is compatible with with all existing database drivers including Mertech's but excluding the Pervasive driver as it isn't SQL compliant (sorry).
