Dec 3, 2019 1:45:00 PM / by Mertech


Focused on database support and feature parity, BTR2SQL Version 6 includes support for RDBMS versions of Microsoft SQL Server 2019, Oracle 19c, and PostgreSQL 12.

Keeping pace with the increased rate of updates from database vendors, this new release also includes important bug fixes and optimizations, as well as exciting updates like new migration and query tools.

In BTR2SQL v6, you’ll find:

Support for the latest versions of RDBMS, including:
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2019
    Our driver is now shipping with the latest version of the Microsoft OLE DB driver. Look for more videos on the features this makes available soon.
  • Oracle 19c
    The final release in the Oracle 12.2 family is focused on stability. Most excitingly, this version features Automatic Indexing and Automated Statement Quarantines to discourage degrading system performance.
  • PostgreSQL 12
    This version features performance improvements in indexes, online index rebuilding, and stored generated columns.

Trimmed Multi-segment Queries: This service is a speed optimization designed to reduce roundtrips to the server for certain query operations. Not only does this save time, the operation is carried out silently in the background. First implemented in v5.3 for MS-SQL, this feature is now available in Oracle as well.  

Multi-LOB Support: In v5.3, we released Multi-LOB support for our MS-SQL driver. Now, we’ve attained feature parity by ensuring that PostgreSQL and Oracle support Multi-LOB. This allows for the variable portion of a Btrieve record structure to support multiple binary segments that will be stored in the SQL back end as independent columns. This feature is also addressable in Btrieve with the same offset-based access that you’re familiar with.
