MacOS X installer has been rewritten from scratch using a custom made AppleScript application (its source code is available in the script folder inside the complete package). In this way we can support again MacOS X 10.6 and finally dropped the buggy PackageMaker app previously used for the MacOS X installer.

cubeSQL and 1701 Software

April 24th, 2014 | 1 Comment »

Seattle, WA USA (April 22, 2014) — 1701 Software, Inc. announced today the immediate availability of CubeSQL database servers on their Xojo® optimized web hosting accounts. All customers will be provided free of charge an unlimited connections server license while hosting with 1701 Software. They will be able to utilize the power and flexibility of multiple SQLite databases running on their very own instance of CubeSQL server.

CubeSQL server was the first commercially available database server based on the popular SQLite database engine. It is a fully featured and high performance relational database management system created in 2005 and has continued to improve with each release. It is the ideal database server for both developers who want to convert a single user database solution to a multi-user project and for companies looking for an affordable, easy to use and easy to maintain database management system.

SQLite has always been an excellent database for use on the web. However due to the file based nature of SQLite database files it can be difficult access a single database from multiple applications simultaneously. CubeSQL provides a native Xojo® plugin that provides client based access to the CubeSQL server the desktop or web. It also supports PHP, JSON, and other development environments for easy integration in to business applications.

Customers will be able to create multiple databases on their private virtual server provided by 1701 Software free of charge. This amounts to significant savings as a software developer can start using best of breed technologies with Xojo® from the moment they sign up for web hosting. All servers are backed up on a regular schedule and replicated to geo-redundant locations providing safe and secure database backups. Customers will also be able to schedule their own backups to their private server file system.

“Xojo® developers have been spoiled by the power and flexibility of SQLite and are often disappointed in the more complex database systems” said Phillip Zedalis, Managing Developer of 1701 Software, Inc. “This is a real opportunity for our customers to create best in class web applications using the tools and platforms they already know and love.”
