Array Column Type Support
Enables the use of data access standards compliant services, applications, tools, and development environments alongside a PROGRESS DBMS without modifying or reinventing DBMS Schema.
Application Development Costs Reduction
Application Development Costs Reduction enables more experimentation and faster improvement
Distributed Database Support
Enables one standards-compliant data access connection to query over several Progress Databases at once. (Only applicable to SQL-89 modality of Progress 6.x-9.x.)
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Hyphenated Column Name support
Enables the use of existing Progress DBMS schemas with standards-compliant data access tools, services, applications, and development environments.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Transaction Isolation Levels configuration
User-level configuration of Transaction Isolation Levels. Transaction Isolation levels are optionally configurable as part of the DBMS connection configuration.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Version Independence
Provides standards-compliant data access tools, services, applications, and development environments across all PROGRESS DBMS versions (6.x and higher). You don't need a Progress DBMS upgrade in order to take advantage of standards compliant data access technology.
Application Development Costs Reduction

Driver Architectures

OpenLink Software providers drivers to connect to Progress in the following architectures:

 

Application that includes in-built network connectivity [i.e., RDBMS independent client and server components] with regards to RDBMS connectivity.

Connection Pooling
Enables efficient management of resources associated with database sessions
Controlled Access to Data Assets
Controlled Access to Data Assets prevents unauthorised changes
Database mirroring compatibility
Provides developer with DBMS server topology flexibility
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Deferred Fetching of Blob Data
The SQLGetData() and SQLPutData() ODBC API implementations have been significantly enhanced to provide intelligent handling of BLOB data. This facilitates transferring parameter data in parts over the network between the Enterprise Edition (Multi-Tier) Generic Client and Database Agents. Once transferred, the fragmented column data is reassembled in its entirety within the Client and/or Agent parts of the Enterprise Edition (Multi-Tier) driver (depending on if this is an insert or retrieval). This feature applies to data types such as SQL_LONGVARCHAR, SQL_WLONGVARCHAR, SQL_LONGVARBINARY, BLOB, and CLOB.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Multiple Active Result Sets (MARS)
Enables applications developers to work concurrently against multiple query result sets
Controlled Access to Data Assets
Controlled Access to Data Assets prevents unauthorised changes
Multithreading support
Enables development, deployment, and use of multithreaded client applications.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Reference Cursors Support in Stored Procedures
Support for advanced DBMS Server functionality.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
SSL Support
Secure data transmission between applications and DBMS server
Controlled Access to Data Assets
Controlled Access to Data Assets prevents unauthorised changes
Snapshot transaction isolation level
Enabling additional transaction isolation granularity to application developers.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Support for Serial Data Type
Provides application developers with access to last serial values for a given table.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Transaction Isolation Levels configuration
User-level configuration of Transaction Isolation Levels. Transaction Isolation levels are optionally configurable as part of the DBMS connection configuration.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
Transaction Isolation mode discovery
Enables developers to determine if DBMS instance is transactional or non-transactional.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
XML and Native Large Value data types support
Provides developers with increased range of data types for developing new-generation applications.
Sophisticated Application Functionality
Supports data access, integration and management, from the simplest to the most sophisticated functionality
 

Client Application that depends on external networking services e.g., those provided by an RDBMS sever application in regards to database connectivity
