Valentina Database Gains Enhanced Text Handling Features
July 23, 1999. Beaverton, Oregon. Paradigma Software announced an
upgrade to its Valentina database technology, adding significant text
handling features to its entire product line.
Version 1.3 represents an upgrade to the powerful Valentina database
kernel, adding enhanced flexibility in working with textual data.
String fields can now contain up to 65,535 bytes of data; Valentina
also adds indexing by words within each string. For very large
continuous pieces of text, there is also a new BLOB Text type,
allowing very large volumes of text to be searched and indexed,
limited only to the operating system disk file size of 2 GB.
Valentina databases can also now be searched using a regular
expression, such as that found in popular scripting tools like
"The increased size and indexing features is perfect for creating web
log analysis solutions, or any other case where huge volumes of text
needs to be stored, searched, modified and indexed," said Ruslan
Zasukhin, President of Paradigma Software.
The technology upgrade appears in all Valentina database products:
Valentina, the scriptable database management system. Database
designers or anyone skilled at scripting can work with Valentina and
any AppleScript friendly interface builder such as Digital
Technology's FaceSpan or IncWell's SuperCard product.
Valentina SDK for Macintosh OS, and Valentina SDK for Windows
95/98/NT, allow developers to add powerful database functionality to
applications developed in Metrowerks CodeWarrior environment, and
Microsoft Visual C++ development product.
Paradigma Software is also preparing a new series of tools in the
Valentina SDK line with enhanced support for rapid application tools
such as REAL Software's REALbasic 2.0 and Macromedia Director.
The technology upgrade is available to all current owners of
Valentina products. Valentina, the scriptable database engine, is
available for $49. All products can be purchased through the
Paradigma Software web site at http://www.paradigmasoft.com .
