VistaDB 2.0 officially released

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

[From Vista Software]

LA JOLLA, Calif. - Sept. 25th, 2004 - Vista Software today announced the official release of VistaDB 2.0 as an alternative for .NET developers using Microsoft Jet/Access and MSDE to build small to midsize database applications. The main features of VistaDB is a small 1MB footprint, XCOPY deployment with zero administration and free unlimited distribution.

VistaDB is a true RDBMS that was designed to be an alternative to the now deprecated Microsoft Jet engine. According to Carrabino, the VistaDB user base grew dramatically in 2004 as developers learned that Microsoft had dropped support for the Jet engine, which is the underlying data engine for MS-Access. Microsoft dropped support for Jet from MDAC 2.6, which means developers have no future in continuing to use the Jet engine for building database applications. The company states that migrating Access databases to VistaDB provides a future under .NET along with providing more robust data management, a smaller footprint and easier deployment.
