Now with RESTful Services
The “Native” Application Platform for MultiValue
Attract New Developers
and Bring Your Application
into the Future with jBASE
More than 25 years of innovation and
determination has led to the evolution of a truly
native database that is now 100% owned and
supported by Zumasys, with Uniware, as an official
distributor of Zumasys Products and Services.
What is jBASE?
jBASE is a world-class database management system comprised of development tools, middleware
and a proven multi-dimensional database. jBASE takes the best points of a relational database
model and adds several significant benefits including extreme scalability, superb performance, a
small footprint and all of the rich features MultiValue developers require. With jBASE, your programs
run natively on the underlying operating system. This allows you to easily cross train new hires and
mainstream developers to bring your application into the future.
This highly flexible platform gives you the freedom to design your applications around your business
needs, not the capabilities of your database. The adaptable architecture means you no longer need
a crew of DBAs or an army of consultants to implement and keep your database running. Now
under the ownership of Zumasys, the technology has been optimised for multi-tenancy and made
100% compatible with leading virtualisation platforms VMware vSphere and Microsoft Hyper-V.
With Uniware as an official distributer of jBASE, within the Australian and New Zealand MultiValue
market.
Under the hood
The jBASE architecture is uniquely designed
to integrate with all application
program interfaces (APIs) and backend databases, which means you can
store your data in SQL, Oracle or DB2 while still fully utilising your MultiValue programs.
Enhanced versatility allows you to program in BASIC or C, providing your applications full
access to the underlying operating system.
There is no restrictive legacy Virtual Machine
layered on top of your
application. The file I/O runs through a layer called jEDI (jBASE External Database
Interface), which allows you to write BASIC code using conventional OPEN/READ/WRITE
commands that access and manipulate information in virtually any data store, including
relational databases and RESTful services.
“With jBASE web services and native operating
system integration we now have easier access to
integrate with current and future technologies.”

jBASE Benefits
Improved speed and flexibility
Because existing MultiValue apps are converted to native executables and shared objects, they run fast and take
advantage of the latest compiler optimisations available for Windows, UNIX and Linux platforms. Because they
are native, business objects created in jBASE, even those based on legacy code, can be easily wrapped with other
languages.
Reduced costs
Flexible licensing models support cost-effective application deployment for traditional character-based applications
and include models suited for efficient deployment of web and graphical-based applications. jBASE also has one of
the lowest support and maintenance costs among enterprise-level MultiValue databases.
Dedicated support from Uniware
Uniware has a dedicated team of developers located in Australia and a customer-centric support team that is
available 24x7. Our professional services team is here to help with your migration to jBASE and we can get your
application running on jBASE quickly, on-premises or in our cloud. We can even show you your existing code
running through a rich browser-based interface with zero modification.
We do all of this with unrivaled performance and with significantly lower annual maintenance costs.
With jBASE from Uniware, you can:
Simplify web development. jBASE’s unique native architecture allows your programs to
run natively on the underlying operating system, becoming instantly familiar to modern
developers and easily connected to other databases, web services and the latest SaaS
applications through jBASE’s rich API-integration.
A modern platform. jBASE is a dynamic, high-performance and flexible NoSQL database
that gives you the freedom to design your applications around your business needs, not
the capabilities of your database. NoSQL is a data model that predated SQL databases and
has regained popularity due to limitations of SQL databases, especially around scalability,
defined schemas and multi-structured data.
Enrich the user experience. Use the latest and most popular development tools to add
a modern user interface to finally give your employees and customers access to your
application through the web and their mobile devices.

NATIVE RESTful SERVICES
RESTful Services have become one of the most important technologies for integrating business applications with the web. As a
universal way for applications to communicate with each other, every major development language now includes frameworks
for building RESTful Services. Native RESTful Services in jBASE 5.6 allows us to bypass proprietary APIs and open up your jBASE
database to any language environment, web service or application. Developers can now unleash the power of their application
and communicate in a modern way with powerful web services and SaaS applications, like Salesforce, Dynamics or NetSuite.
These innovations will allow our customers’ time-proven intellectual property to ride the latest technological trends that are
transforming the world of business.
GRANULAR AUDIT LOGGING
SYSTEM MANAGER UPDATE
Building on the success of jBASE 5.5, we’ve increased the
granularity of logging options to enable deeper event audits
for customers with even the most stringent compliance
requirements. Now you can set logging options globally or
at an individual file level. You can also apply audit logs to a
remote copy of jBASE to accelerate the backup process and
improve recovery point objectives.
System Manager provides a single pane of glass from which
to manage your jBASE database. We’ve updated this powerful
web tool with improved file management capabilities,
audit logging configuration capabilities, and user session
management. From jBASE System Manager, you can now
remotely manage all active user sessions and log out inactive
users as needed.
NATIVE DATA ENCRYPTION
IMPROVED TRANSACTION JOURNALING
Get built-in data security and protection with the standard
jBASE product for no additional cost. Native data encryption
now makes it easy to meet increasing compliance
requirements with granular encryption at the file level. Choose
between file-level encryption and spooler-level encryption
while maintaining the high performance your users expect.
Transaction Journaling has become simpler to administer and
maintain, ensuring replication of your jBASE database. With
the introduction of 64 bit transaction logs, log sizes are no
longer limited to 2GB and only need a single file per log set.
In addition, transaction log sets can be configured to switch
automatically, allowing you to specify when log sets switch
based on the percentage of disk usage.
