MacBrowse has updated their FutureBASIC plug-in that allows FutureBASIC programmers to use the popular Valentia database system in their applications. FutureBASIC is a powerful development environment for the Mac OS, and MacBrowseis DataShell allows users to take full advantage of Valentiais database connectivity. According to MacBrowse:
MacBrowse is proud to announce the availability of DataShell 1.2, a driver solution that allows FutureBASIC^3 developers to use Valentina XCMD, an object-relational, SQL-powered database engine, in their applications.
DataShell 1.2 features an improved parameter cache system and is slightly faster than previous versions.
FutureBASIC, from Staz Software (http://www.stazsoftware.com), is an award winning development environment for the Apple Macintosh, based on the popular BASIC language. Thanks to DataShell, the wait for a FutureBASIC-enabled database engine is over. DataShell is very easy to use, no complex project setup or hard to learn syntax. You will be creating database applications from scratch in a very short period of time.
"FutureBASIC is a favorite for creating small, extremely fast applications on the Macintosh platform. However no major database vendor has stepped up to the plate to provide a database solution that works with FutureBASIC. DataShell enables FutureBASIC developers to create extremely fast database-driven applications", said Sylvain Guillemette, developer of DataShell.
DataShell is available for US$49.95. You can find more information at the MacBrowse Web site.
