OpenInsight Development Suite 9.4 Released
Includes O4W version 1.5 and improvements to the OEngineServer 
Westwood, NJ - June 14, 2013, Revelation Software today announced the availability of the latest release of OpenInsight Development Suite (OI) 9.4.  OI 9.4 provides the following new components:

* OpenInsight for Web (O4W v1.5) - O4W v1.5 includes enhancements to the dashboards to allow for specification of additional sources for dashboard panels to include O4W Report and BRW report.  Enhancements have also been made to O4W User Management, O4W Table Manager and a new utility function (O4WSWITCHMODE), which allows developers to switch between local and online versions of O4W.

* OEngineServer - The Revelation Software OEngine Server is a java application designed to listen for requests from various client applications; startup, manage, and terminate the database engines for OpenInsight (OEngines); and route requests and responses from the clients to the OEngines.  OI 9.4 has dramatically increased OEngineServer stability and has also added support for UTF8 mode. 

"This release of OpenInsight is evolutionary, rather than revolutionary", said Mike Ruane, President/CEO Revelation Software, "This release includes a number of enhancements as requested by our users and VARs.  For revolutionary improvements, wait for our OpenInsight 10.0 release, which is being worked on actively at this time."

Also included in OI 9.4 are a number of patches and enhancements for the MultiValue Base File System (MVBFS), Banded Report Writer, RevelationDotNet 4.0, OIPI.Net/OIPI, SQL Connector, Editor++/Basic+, OECGI3P.PHP and Arev32/CTO. 

"The improvements to our OEngineServer robustness is a huge breakthrough", said Robert Catalano, Director of Sales, Revelation Software.  "Memory usage has decreased so dramatically that the OEngineServer can run millions of requests without interruption."

OpenInsight Development Suite 9.4 is available from Revelation Software, or through their network of resellers.  SeeREVELATION.COM for details.

Did you know......That you can disable one or more tabs on a multi-tab O4W Form-wizard designed form.

On a multi-tab O4W Form-wizard designed form, you might occasionally wish to programmatically disable one or more tabs (for example, certain tabs might contain information that's not appropriate or relevant for the current record). You can use the commuter module and the "tabs" plugin to achieve this.

Unfortunately, there's no call in the commuter utility to tell us "real time" what all the tabs are, so we have to hard-code which tabs you'll want to disable or enable - so this means that if you go in and add a new tab, you'll need to remember to update your commuter module logic. READ ON...



Database Trends and Applications introduces the inaugural “DBTA 100,” a list of the companies that matter most in data. The past several years have transformed enterprise information management, creating challenges and opportunities for companies seeking to extract value from a sea of data assets. In response to this, established IT vendors as well as legions of newer solution providers have rushed to create the tools to do just that.

Regulatory mandates that specify the way information is captured and protected and how long it must be retained have caused companies to amass data at levels thought unimaginable in the past. Compounding this trend is the data pouring from machines, the web, and social media.

The extent to which data is growing was underscored by a 2011 survey conducted by Unisphere Research and sponsored by Oracle among 611 members of the Independent Oracle Users Group. The survey found that for close to 1 out of 10 respondents, the total amount of online (disk-resident) data they manage—taking into account all clones, snapshots, replicas, and backups—topped a petabyte. The same study found that more than one-third of respondents’ companies are storing data in their systems for more than 7 years due to either their company’s own policies or external compliance mandates, and 12% say they just hold on to their data … indefinitely.

The phenomenon that has resulted from the ensuing variety, velocity, and volume of information is called “big data.” And while that term is overused, it is only because it is such a ubiquitous force.  READ ON...
