In ObjectStudio 8.5 and VisualWorks 7.10, Cincom has added full Unicode support to their DB2 connects. This means that from those versions, users will be able to use Unicode table and column names, include Unicode strings in their SQL statements, bind Unicode strings to host variables and even input and output Unicode strings to and from stored procedures.
In previous issues of the Cincom Smalltalk Digest, we had a preview of the MarqueeDialog and the Progress Bar in the ObjectStudio GUI Project. Each month we’ll be opening one file, so don’t forget to check it out next month when we’ll be opening the first one … you don’t want to miss it!
Last October and November we previewed the MarqueeDialog and the Progress Bar. These were inspired by the ObjectStudio New GUI Project, and they will be available in ObjectStudio 8.5.
We are pleased to announce that the evaluation copies of the new releases of ObjectStudio and VisualWorks are now available for personal use!
In ObjectStudio 8.5, Cincom will add a new ODBC Wrapper Via ODBCEXDI. This new ODBC Wrapper is built upon VisualWorks’ ODBCEXDI. While the APIs at the database level are compatible with those in the existing ODBC Wrapper, all of its interactions with ODBC libraries will be handled by VisualWorks ODBCEXDI.
At the last ESUG conference in Gent, Andreas Hiltner gave an “Lightning Talk” about the Cincom® ObjectStudio® new GUI project. The goal of this project is to create a new GUI library of Windows native widgets for ObjectStudio using DLLCC instead of writing them in C. In October, we looked at the Marquee Dialog. This time we would like to present the ProgressBarDialog.
