SOFTWARE LANGUAGE

We have all heard of the term software language but what does it really mean.  Does the software language used make a difference to performance and number of users and so on. The answer is definitely yes. That is why Freightdata chose Microsoft's® VB6™ (Visual Basic) and not other Windows languages used by some competitors such as VBA™ (Visual Basic For Applications or Access itself)) a cut down version of VB6™. So what’s the difference. Well value for a start, a system developed in VB6 is generally a more expensive development product then VBA™. It is also designed with SQL/Oracle in mind using the power to offer true client Server applications. Microsoft’s Access was not designed primarily as a language, but as a small office database with tools for in house reports and front end input and interrogation.

That’s why FD2 uses “MS VB6” to provide full support to all its products. Power that it can produce. <Top>

DATABASES

By using Microsoft ACCESS™ as a language tool you use the data base engine in ACCESS rather then a more powerful data base such as SQL Server or Oracle. It is true you can link to these more powerful data bases but you have to channel them via the ACCESS engine, which can produce slower performance.

On larger system this can cause problems and using the ACCESS data base itself can cause slow performance on high disk seeking software such as used in freight forwarding. CargoFind® also uses MS SQL™ Server to power its Tracking software. So perhaps now you’re getting more insight into the workings of Freightdata 2000.

Recent studies carried out show that performance is effected drastically by using the ACCESS data base engine and it is not recommended therefore for serious computer users. Microsofts® SQL Server or ORACLE® is recommended for high end users. Need we say more.
