Vancouver, BC – March 1, 2002 – Amyn Rajan, President of Simba Technologies is pleased to announce the release of SimbaEngine 6.2, the latest version of Simba’s software development toolkit enabling the creation of custom ODBC interfaces to proprietary data stores.

SimbaEngine – A track record of providing the most complete ODBC driver development suite available anywhere!

For almost a decade, Simba has been the leader in advanced data access development technologies. Through the SimbaEngine ODBC SDK suite, Simba’s customers have created some of the most extensive and powerful database products and solutions in the world. SimbaEngine 6.2 builds on the foundation of previous versions, allowing the development of custom ODBC and JDBC interfaces to legacy data stores, exposing information to reporting tools and the web.

More importantly, SimbaEngine allows customers to retain the proprietary and competitive advantages of existing architecture and business processes. Unlike switching to a relational database management system, which ultimately diminishes performance and control, Simba’s approach builds on top of your current processes and provides customized performance and control, while saving development and support costs.

Extending the functionality from previous releases such as Versions 6.0 and 6.1, Simba continues to offer its customers products with a continuous upgrade path.

Highlights available in SimbaEngine Version 6.2 Release:

  • V 6.2 is primarily a maintenance release that offers product fixes and updates for continued support of the industry’s leading ODBC and JDBC applications. Version 6.2 also includes one new feature addition (INNER JOIN – see next)
  • INNER JOIN support has been added to the SimbaEngine product so that it now supports the INNER JOIN syntax. The INNER JOIN feature is defined as being a SQL join enhancement compliant with the International Standards Organization’s SQL92 standards document.
