Paradigma Valentina 2.3

Paradigma today began shipping Valentina 2.3, an update to its next-generation, object-relational database model that builds on the traditional relational database model. Valentina 2.3 includes a dramatic leap forward in speed for database JOINS (including data from two or more database tables) with a new breakthrough algorithm, according to the company. Version 2.3 also includes improved speed and performance in Add Record commands, new SHOW commands, new test projects, and a Universal Binary version of both the Valentina 2.2 ADK C++ and of Valentina Studio, the browser, query, and administration tool. ADK Standard Edition ADKs start at $200; VDN pricing begins at $500. Owners of the 2.x versions of the products receive a free upgrade to 2.3.

"In a comparative analysis in base configurations between Valentina and MS SQL Server 2000 on Windows, on joins of 5,000,000 and 20,000,000 record test databases, Valentina was between 2-6 times faster than MS SQL Server. Based on file structural differences of even larger databases, Valentina 2.3 can be 50-100 times faster or more (MS Server, mySQL, PostGre, SQLite and Oracle have the same file based limitations), depending on the record size of a table," the company said.

Valentina 2.3 improvements are available in all versions of Valentina Office Server and ADKs for COM (VB 6, Delphi), .net (VB 2005), Macromedia Director, Runtime Revolution and REALbasic, as well as Embedded Server (a part of Valentina Developer Network).

During the month of April 2006, Valentina for REALbasic ADK Pro will also receive a copy of Valentina Office Server (five connections) at no added cost - including new seats and upgrades.
