Re: InstantDB: InstantDB 3.5 now avaiulable.


Hi Peter,

are we going to see a client-server version soon? Gap analysis betw
competing products indicates that this is the biggest value-add.

For myself, I'm using hypersonicsql while waiting for InstantDB. InstantDB
beats the former in everything except the above. That is why I'm a lurker
here.

> Hi Everyone
>
> Just to let you know, InstantDB 3.5 is now available from the usual place:
>
> http://instantdb.enhydra.org/software/downloads/index.html
>
> Many of you will be glad to know that, in addition to the changes listed
> below, the download now contains a copy of the online documentation.
>
> New Features
>
> - New database property dateTimeFormat and new SQL statement:
> SET DATETIME FORMAT <$ time>
> - Date and time formats and currency symbols can now be defined on a per
> column basis during table creation.
> - DBBrowser and SQLBuilder have had all hard coded strings removed and
> placed in ResourceBundles for easy future internationalisation.
>
> Bug fixes
>
> - Boolean parameters in PreparedStatements caused a ClassCastException
> during expression evaluation. Fixed.
> - ON DELETE... and ON UPDATE... could not be specified as table
constraints.
> Fixed.
> - Multiple WHERE conditions could sometimes execute the wrong inequality
> comparisons. Fixed.
> - ALTER TABLE would fail and corrupt system tables if a column was added
as
> NOT NULL but with no DEFAULT value. Fixed.
> - Multiple writing threads waiting for an existing writer, could wake up
> when the write lock was freed, grab multiple read locks and then would
> deadlock each other until the transaction timeout out. Read locks for
> writers are now not grabbed until the write lock is also guaranteed.
> - Timestamps used floating point arithmetic to set second and millisecond
> values. This was subject to floating point rounding errors. Fixed.
> - Scrollable results sets required a moveToInsertRow() call before every
> insertRow() call. However, multiple calls to insertRow() should be allowed
> after only a single call to moveToInsertRow(). Fixed.
> - Updating of non-key fields in a parent table being referenced by a child
> would be denied if the non-key field was not cached. Fixed.
