oneSQL Now Available

oneSQL is now available to download, free of charge.  This is a Beta Version of oneSQL which means that it is nearly ready for general release but may still have some bugs, be incomplete in some areas, have a lack of documentation or other issues.

This current version appears stable and working well – but I welcome your feedback.

In particular if you use Linux I would love your feedback as so far I have been unable to test on Linux.

I only ask for your Name and Email Address and I will send you the current version of oneSQL. Your email address will not be sold or abused in any way – so don’t feel uncomfortable giving me that information. Your email address will only be used for communication regarding oneSQL unless you agree otherwise.

Having got the above out of the way I perhaps ought to explain what oneSQL is and why you should care;

oneSQL is a Software Program that allows you to send SQL Query SELECT‘s and other SQL Commands to either a SQLite or MySQL database. oneSQL is written using the DataViewer Components for Xojo and RealStudio.

Q: What is the difference between oneSql and DataViewer ? A: oneSql is a stand alone application for querying, editing and manipulating SQLite and MySQL databases. DataViewer is the necessary Modules and Windows to allow you to incorporate the querying functionality into your own software, and restrict access for the end user to the database(s) you need them to access only.

Sorting and Archiving

Sell Some • Bin Some • Keep Some

In my ongoing quest to reinvent myself this year I’ve been sorting out my Software Products and archiving Source Code, Documentation, Images, Demo Movies etc. The image below is most of the software products I have written since 2009, mostly in Xojo / Realstudio, some in VB.Net, C#.Net and a couple in CoronaSDK.

I would never have guessed there would be quite so many 🙂
