Computer Associates? (CA) object-oriented database, Jasmine, has slipped from April to June.
The software giant claims the delay is because it is adding new functionality to Jade (Jasmine Application Development Environment), which, it says, is an integral part of the database.
Jade enables developers to set up object queries, define how objects are stored in Jasmine and what those objects do, and also define how editors and browsers access the database. It can also be used for building full-blown multimedia applications.
Jay Huff, CA?s UK marketing director, said the company was delaying Jade?s release because it wanted to improve consistency across the database editors, browsers and screens. It was also adding new form controls, OCXs and enhanced application programming interfaces for Java.
CA intends to introduce its first customer beta in the next couple of weeks, after having introduced a pilot scheme for partners and OEMs at the start of the year.
It has yet to put a licensing scheme in place for signing up third party development tools to work against Jasmine, but is expected to do so in the future.
