Greetings...

Is there a document anywhere, or does anyone know, what the future ASE
release plans might be? I have found end-of-life notices, but cannot
find anything regarding future plans.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
TJ

From what I heard at TechWave:


ASE 15.0.2 (2007 Q2?)

· Scalar User Defined Functions (UDFs). These are restricted to returning
a single value.

· Instead-of Triggers. These are defined only on views and will perform
proxy actions for view deletes, inserts, or updates. These allow one to do
write operations that cannot be done directly with the views owing to the
presence of aggregates, unions, constants, etc. Unlike table triggers these
cannot be enabled or disabled; drop/create trigger must be used instead.

· Incorporation of all of the ASE 12.5.4 security features.



ASE 15.0.2 or later

· UDFs that return tables.

· Standard Deviation and Variance functions (finally!).

· Fast bulk copy program (bcp) for tables with indexes and/or triggers.
This will not be available for All Pages Locking (APL) tables with clustered
indexes.

· Separate tempdb user log cache per user for further improving tempdb
performance. The transaction log for this cache will be discarded instead
of being written to the log device.

· XML tables.

· The ability to shrink a database.

· Additional Encryption Features: (1) key passwords so that
administrators and security officers cannot view encrypted user data, and
(2) allow for encryption of more data types.

· Shared Disk Clusters. This is a shared disk cluster setup, as is
Oracles Real Application Cluster (RAC). (The alternative is a shared
nothing cluster design which IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and MySQL use.)

· Mid-tier caching. Implementation of this was unclear to me. It
appears to be of use with federated systems where joins might be made across
servers.

Well, since 15.0.1 is already available and the question was about future
releases ... But as along as I am responding and there does not appear to
be a "What's New" for 15.0.1 - other than for Chinese, I'll append some more
of my notes from TechWave.

· The code lines for 12.5.4 (security and encryption features) and 15.0
have been partially merged so that encrypted columns are now a separate
licensed option within ASE 15.0.1.

· Archive Database Access - also in 12.5.4. This is a combination of a
normal database dump on disk (not tape), a small dump-specific database, and
a small "master archive database". Essentially the combination virtualizes
the dump into a read-only database that provides for the ability to recover
individual objects and the ability to run "offline" DBCC checks on the dump.
This will also work with subsequent load transaction commands. The major
limitation is that many of the operations apparently can be done only by a
system administrator (e.g., copying tables from the dump into a real
database).

· Literal Auto Parameterization. This automatically converts SQL literals
to variables in the statement cache. ("select col1 from table1 where col2 =
1" is converted to "select col1 from table1 where col2 = @@@V0_int".) This
is configurable at the session and server level. The point is to make
better use of statement caching by coalescing almost-identical statements
into one reusable parse tree that can be used for queries with either
different "argument values" or "identical queries" from different users.

· Addition of isdate (), isnumeric (), and partition_object_id ()
functions.

Hmmm. Is it hardcover? I don't see an online version at

No, it was a PDF that was on the SPDC site. Downloadable with
the version.

OK, have downloaded it. I'm surprised that it is not also at the above
site.
