Release Date: Tuesday, January 24, 2017
The newest release of jBASE 5.6 offers even more incredible features, such as native RESTful services, native data encryption, more granular audit logging and improved transaction journaling.
jBASE 5.6 includes over 30 enhancements and fixes, and also include new features:
Native data encryption:
Get built-in data security and protection with the standard jBASE product for no additional cost.
Additional audit logging features:
Increase the granularity of logging options for deeper event audits. Logs can also be applied to a remote copy of jBASE to accelerate the backup process and reduce recovery point objectives.
Improved transaction journaling:
Quickly enable and maintain jBASE replication with new enhancements, including definable automatic purging. Transaction journals can be used to quickly bring older database copies up to date.
Updated System Manager:
Enable centralized management via a graphic web interface for encryption, audit logging and transaction journaling.
About Zumasys, Inc
Zumasys helps companies of every size transition their infrastructure and applications to the cloud. With Zumasys cloud services, customers can easily access the latest software and hardware technologies over the Web, allowing them to focus on growing their core business instead of managing their IT infrastructures. Zumasys delivers personalized service, integrated disaster recovery and the confidence companies need to outsource the hosting of all their databases including SQL, Oracle and Pick MultiValue systems.
In 2014, Zumasys acquired a string of MultiValue software technologies including:
- AccuTerm - The leading Windows/Mobile connectivity solution for the Pick Market with more than 16,000 customers worldwide. Pete Schellenbach is now Zumasys' Director of Product Development.
- MultiValue Dashboard - Originally developed by The Nerdery and re-launched in 2014, MultiValue Dashboard allows you to quickly and easily build web-based dashboards using traditional Pick programming methods.
- OpenQM - Zumasys announced an Exclusive Worldwide Distribution and domestic support/maintenance arrangement for OpenQM, a cost-effective, efficient, high-performance database to run Pick applications.
- jBASE - Zumasys acquired jBASE database from Temenos, based in Geneva Switzerland. Its contemporary architecture allows Pick-based applications to natively interact with the underlying Windows or Unix operating system, and store data in SQL Server, Oracle and the cloud.

What is jBASE?
jBASE is a database and a set of programs and libraries that allows normal MultiValue (MV) applications to become native Windows, Unix or Linux programs. All of the traditional MV features are supported, including BASIC, Proc, Paragraph, Query and Dictionaries (Pick and Prime style).
What are the benefits of jBASE?
Because existing MV apps are converted to native executables and shared objects, they run fast and take advantage of the latest compiler optimizations available for Windows, Unix and Linux platforms.
Flexible licensing models support cost-effective application deployment for traditional character-based applications and include models suited for efficient deployment of web and graphical-based applications.
A key differentiator is that jBASE architecture tends to make sense to technical hires who may not have prior MV experience. jBASE organizes itself much like other mainstream applications, with full support for pathing and threading. Because it is native, business objects created in jBASE, even those based on legacy code, can be wrapped with other languages. jBASE is a platform that respects the investments made in custom-built legacy apps while allowing non-MV programmers to build next-generation applications using the latest design tools and methods.
jBASE also has one of the lowest support and maintenance costs among enterprise-level MV databases.
Who actually controls jBASE?
In 2015, Zumasys purchased the jBASE intellectual property and development from Temenos, as well as jBASE sales and support from MPower1. Zumasys now controls and markets jBASE internationally with full time developers located in England and North America. jBASE interested us not just because of its worldwide install-base of loyal customers but also because it is a technology that will utilize the Zumasys Cloud to help those customers move to a SaaS business model. We can serve up MV applications running on a multi-tenanted database architecture with unrivaled price and performance and include unique features such as browser-based access.
What does the future hold for jBASE?
Being a native architecture, the future for jBASE is bright. Advancements in technology outside of jBASE tend to benefit jBASE simply because it has a native architecture. This leaves our engineers with time to focus on internal feature and functions and leave other work such as performance tuning and connectivity to vendors of operating systems.
Developers can continue to develop using traditional MV languages and data or choose to develop in new languages. They can choose whether data should be stored in traditional high-performance MV files or in virtually any other database, such as SQL Server, Oracle, DB2 or modern object data stores and noSQL databases.
