OpenAccess SDK 5.5 SP1 (June 2006)

  • Improved robustness in client and server code - Various improvements in the client and server code allow for more robust operations under heavy loads. Improved object reference handling in the Java SDK limit memory usage.
  • Support for 64-bit AIX and 64-bit Solaris - OpenAccess SDK for C/C++ is now available for use with 64-bit code for AIX on IBM pSeries and Solaris on Sparc based systems.
  • Improved user defined scalar function specification - Allows IP to specify precision, length, and scale of result. In the previous version the SQL engine supplied default data type mapping.
  • Improvements to trace information - log version and configuration information before logging any error messages. Truncated log files are clearly marked at the end as being truncated.
  • Support for Views implemented by IP - IP can now mark objects as Views and handle CREATE VIEW, DROP VIEW commands.
  • Flexible Index Optimization - IP can choose to mark indexes only for internal query optimization and not expose to client applications. This is useful to prevent client applications like Microsoft Access from trying to optimize on columns that are exposed as indexes.
  • Improved support for subquery in FROM clause and Views - Execute subquery in FROM clause and execute the parent query using the subquery result table. Previous implementation of this feature expanded the nested query into a single query and this is some cases resulted in wrong results and limitations. The new implementation will first process the inner query and save the results and then execute the outer query on the saved results.
  • Improvements to how join ordering checks for index on inner tables - If IP marks that index should be checked on inner tables (CheckIndexOnJoinCond), DAM checks for index on join condition of inner table or index on any other search condition on the inner table. Previous versions only checked for index on join condition.
  • Flexible Block Join support - Block join mode is enabled for inner tables which are block join compatible. Previous versions enabled block join mode for entire query only if all inner tables were block join compatible. The new version provides improved performance to queries which are not fully block join compatible.
