The Gemstone/S Smalltalk Object Server
Building Enterprise Applications in a Scalable, Secure, Persistent, Distributed Object Environment
The GemStone/S™ family of Smalltalk object persistence and application servers provides an advanced platform for developing, deploying and managing scalable, high-performance, distributed multi-tier applications.
In today's competitive business environment, corporations need technology that enables dynamic, responsive business applications. They need to provide better, faster ways to manage and access data and put more knowledge at the fingertips of the user.
For almost two decades, financial institutions, telecommunications, manufacturing, transportation and utility companies have chosen GemStone/S, the original 32-bit GemStone/S object server, to provide these capabilities. The new GemStone/S 64 Bit Smalltalk object server increases scalability and performance to allow full utilization of the power of 64 bit computing within the proven technology of GemStone/S. The GemStone/S family of products provides the robust, scalable, secure, and flexible environment required for mission-critical 24x7 applications.
The GemStone/S product family includes:
GemStone/S 64 Bit and GemStone/S object servers
The GemStone/S object servers provide an advanced platform for developing, deploying, and managing scalable, high-performance, multi-tier applications. They provide the robust, scalable, secure, and flexible environment required for mission-critical applications, and supports the high-availability online environments demanded by 24x7 operation.
GemBuilder® for Smalltalk
Provides an interface between Smalltalk clients and the GemStone/S object servers, and works with the Smalltalk execution engine to support application partitioning for improved client/server performance. GemBuilder for Smalltalk also extends the development environment by providing specific tools for developing GemStone/S applications, including browsers, inspectors, debuggers, and system administration tools.
GemBuilder® for Java
Provides an interface between Java clients and GemStone/S and contains functionality similar to GemBuilder for Smalltalk. Since GemBuilder for Java's development tools are implemented in Java, developers can create both Java clients and Smalltalk-based GemStone/S applications without leaving their preferred development environment.
GemStone's relational database interface provides direct integration of GemStone/S and the Oracle relational database management system. It enables you to log into a relational database, submit queries and updates to the database, read information from a query in GemStone object form, and track modifications to data. It also provides support for collecting updates from multiple, concurrent client programs for posting to the relational database in batch.
