Vancouver, BC – September 17, 2004 – Simba Technologies is pleased to announce the release of SimbaEngine SDK 7.3. This latest version of SimbaEngine SDK builds on this best-in-class software development toolkit that opens any relational or non-relational data source or Line of Business application to applications that support ODBC, OLE DB, JDBC, or ADO.NET directly or via a network.

The SimbaEngine 7.3 SDK now supports Extended Fetch with a forward scrolling cursor. This is the preferred method of data retrieval for some applications, and provides more natural access to data sets as well as enhanced performance in some situations. The forward scrolling cursor allows an application to define a multi-row cursor in a result set. The Application can scroll forwards and backwards within this cursor, and the entire cursor can be scrolled forward.

The performance and reliability of SimbaEngine SDK 7.3 has been enhanced over SimbaEngine SDK 7.2 with many fixes and improvements, including more reliable handling of long data and improved sorting performance and capacity.

The SimbaEngine SDK 7.3 is available immediately on 32-bit Windows platforms for Microsoft Visual Studio Version 6 and Visual Studio .NET 2003 in all the standard variations. It will be available soon for Solaris and Linux. Please specify your preferred development environment when requesting a copy of SimbaEngine SDK 7.3.
