After months of hard work (on other projects), I’ve finally turned my attention to EoD SQL once again. The API has been stabilizing the past months with bits of work and attention from a few different people (myself included). There have been a few functionality changes (to correct early mistakes), but on the whole the API has come out with more power, and far better performance than ever before!
The primary things to look out for in the 1.0 release:
- Control over DataSet caching
- Array based caching by default
- NullCache implementation provided
- DataSet’s stay more connected
- By making better use of the underlying ResultSet methods, connected DataSet’s almost never disconnect from the database
- A brand new tutorial that offers a quick and easy path to working with EoD SQL
- A generally more stable, faster, and much more mature API
The release will probably be made early next week, and will also include a series of new Unit Tests that work with Java DB (included with Java 6). This means that the Unit Tests will now be able to test more of EoD SQL than before.
