Ultra-Fast Valentina Database Technology Available Through Runtime Revolution

April 8th, 2003. Runtime Revolution and Paradigma Software today announced
two initiatives to bring Valentina Database Technology to Revolution

Revolution, the premiere cross-platform rapid application development
environment from Runtime Revolution, now incorporates direct access to the
Valentina XCMD component. In addition, Revolution developers can now
purchase Valentina XCMD directly from Runtime Revolution, alone or in a
bundle with Revolution, giving immediate access to the full power of
Valentina databases. Revolution makes it easy to create powerful,
fully-functional, and easy-to-use database front-end solutions.

Paradigma Software’s Valentina technology incorporates a unique SQL
compatible database kernel, known for its ability to manage millions of
records with both speed and reliability, limited only by available RAM. Its
modern core lets you build database solutions using any type of data,
including BLOBs (binary large objects), making Valentina the choice for
storing, sorting, and retrieving such materials as numbers, text, audio,
video, and other media objects. Valentina XCMD solutions work with Windows,
MacOS and MacOS X versions of Runtime Revolution.

The Revolution Valentina XCMD solution is available immediately for
purchase through Runtime Revolution.
