simple upgrade
Simple upgrade?
  • The license updates remove the operational barriers for some sites
  • Many users encountered new reserved words when upgrading from older releases
    • In the past, schema and application changes were required
  • Ingres 2.6 introduces a context sensitive parser – words are only reserved in context
new capabilities
New Capabilities

slide23

4GL Application Server

  • Overview
  • 4GL language features
  • Architecture
slide24

Language Features

  • Simple high-level 4GL language
  • SQL “literate”
  • Procedural and object-oriented
    • System classes
    • Developer classes
  • Rich GUI for client applications
  • High productivity
slide25

4GL AppServer Technical Architecture

  • 4GL code is partitioned into applications
  • Runs as one or more “slave” processes, managed by a“pooler” process
  • COM callable interface – TP Monitor
  • Callers can share AppServer processes
  • Processes can be deployed on different hardware
  • Scalable “pooler/slave” architecture
    • Requests are queued and load balanced by a Server Pooler process
      • One per installation
  • Name server for connection load balancing across installations
  • UNIX and Windows
slide26

Supported Clients

  • COM class proxy “glue”
  • 4GL GUI
  • 4GL AppServer
    • Applications can be physically partitioned
  • All other COM
    • VB, ASP etc
  • Java Servlets, JSP, EJB
slide27

Supported Servers

  • Any COM Automation Server
  • 4GL AppServer
    • Applications can be physically partitioned
  • All EDBC databases
  • All Enterprise Access (EAS) databases
  • Ingres
objections revisited
Objections Revisited
  • “It won’t work for us. It can only work for green field sites”
    • Empirical evidence to the contrary
  • “Great strategy, but we need to deliver yesterday”
    • Get quick tactical wins built within a solid strategic application architecture
objections revisited1
Objections Revisited
  • “Sounds good but my boss/company…
    • Won’t pay for the rewrite
    • Won’t wait for the rewrite
      • There is no major rewrite
    • Won’t train new programmers
      • There is no major rewrite
    • Wants to use Bongo3 instead
      • Use it as well – as a client or a data provider
    • Doesn’t want to fix something that is not broken
      • Leave existing apps alone – supplement and steal functionality
    • Won’t believe/understand it !!!” (in all likelihood)
      • Prove it with a safe proof-of-concept
        • Web-enable MIS enquiries/reports
go ahead and do it
Go ahead and do it!
  • Start with a simple proof-of-concept
    • Tactical quick win, solid strategic architecture
  • “Web enable” existing Advantage Ingres data
  • Address new reporting requirements with Advantage OpenROAD AppServer modules
  • Enable new and disparate client technologies
  • “Unlock the value” in existing data and 4GL applications
    • Reuse existing ABF and Advantage OpenROAD 4GL logic
