HiT Offers API for Data Replication Tool
May 24, 2011 Alex Woodie
Third-party software vendors should find it easier to embed DBMoto, HiT Software‘s cross-platform database replication engine, into their own products as a result of new API work the BackOffice Associates subsidiary has done with version 7.1.
HiT says it has delivered new APIs with DBMoto version 7.1 that will simplify the process of integrating the software within the context of an enterprise application architecture.
Giacomo Lorenzin, HiT’s managing director, says the open APIs will benefit ISVs, systems integrators, and enterprises by reducing the time and effort required to implement and configure DBMoto. The new API can also enable DBMoto to be embedded into existing applications.
DBMoto customers should find better performance when using version 7.1 against the Informix database. That’s because the product now uses the Informix log to detect changes to database files, instead of interrogating the database directly.
Version 7.1 also features a new Replication Activity Viewer that allows administrators to monitor the status and performance of DBMoto’s data replication routines, either in batch or real time modes.
DBMoto is a data replication tool that supports more than 20 relational database management systems, including IBM‘s DB2/400, DB2 for LUW, Informix, Cloudscape, and SolidDB; Microsoft‘s SQL Server and Access; Oracle‘s MySQL and Oracle 11i; Sybase‘s ASE and SQL Anywhere; CA‘s Ingres; PostgreSQL Global Development Group‘s PostgreSQL; Gupta‘s SQLBase; and FirebirdSQL.
The San Jose, California-based company was acquired last year by master data management (MDM) software specialist BackOffice Associates.
