cubeSQL and JSON

March 26th, 2011 | No Comments »

We had a problem… we need to fully support PHP clients with our new server but we know (by experience with the old REAL Server) that PHP extensions are very difficult to maintain and to compile and they require a lot of effort just to port the same code to different platforms.

So we decided to follow a completely different approach and we added native JSON support directly into the server, that means that the php client can be pure php code without the need of a precompile extension and without the need to install anything into your hosting provider (actually it is just a php class with about 100 lines of code).

The new JSON protocol is super lightwave for optimal performance under a web service and having JSON built-into the server will open us a lot of new opportunities (like for example javascript clients, web services and much more).

Hope you like this news!
We plan to release the new json server in few days.

cubeSQL 4.0b6 reposted

March 22nd, 2011 | No Comments »

We just reposted another cubeSQL 4.0b6 build due to a last minute bug fixed.
The difference between the new version and the old one is just in the core server and the bug fixed is related to the way the new plugin binds data into the server (so only db.InsertRecord and rs.Update are affected). As a side effect this fixes also the “Incomplete SQL statement” error message that some user reported few days ago.

The new build can be downloaded from:
