PointBase Releases Version 4.5 to Address Production-Level Java Embedded Databases

2/4/2003 - PointBase®, Inc., the leader in Java embedded database products for managing and synchronizing enterprise data across all platforms, released version 4.5 of their award-winning product line. Recognizing that PointBase products are increasingly used in production-level environments, version 4.5 features provide additional stability and scalability benefits for Java application developers.

The PointBase 4.5 release lengthens PointBase’s already considerable technology lead in the embedded database market that according to a Gartner Group study, will grow to over $600 million in 2005. A recent study by IDC confirms the anticipated strong growth, which the analysts conclude will be partly driven by technologies like that of PointBase, particularly in vertical markets implementing enterprise data mobility solutions such as healthcare, government and manufacturing.

"PointBase has already shown its ability to think ahead of the curve in terms of bringing Java applications into the real world of enterprise applications," said Carl Olofson, senior analyst at IDC. "This upgrade underscores PointBase's commitment to providing native Java RDBMS technology that is even more robust in actual deployments, while retaining the small footprint - critically important characteristics in the growing area of Enterprise-level applications for small and mobile devices."

“With the accelerated performance and other enhancements of this new release, PointBase is further stretching its lead in embedded Java data management," Bruce Scott, CEO PointBase. “We have put version 4.5 through extremely demanding stress tests and it performed flawlessly under incredible conditions with no delays or memory leaks.”

The PointBase product family includes:
