Exciting update for Unvired Mobile Platform (UMP) development. UMP now supports the H2 embedded database. (What is H2?)
First up, H2 is a pure Java embedded database with the performance and capabilities of larger server-based database systems. UMP has been supporting MySQL, MS SQL and Oracle so far and has now added full support for H2. So what, you ask?
1. Easier and less cumbersome Trials and POCs
One of the hallmarks of UMP has been simple free trials and self-experience via POCs before the enterprise makes the buy decision. This just became easier with the H2 support. Unzip the preconfigured trial UMP archive, start the UMP service and you are up and running. An on-premise trial should now take a maximum of 1 hour for you to self-provision!
2. Easy evangelizing of UMP in your organization
As a mobile architect or developer are you excited about UMP and want to try building some apps before evangelizing it within your organization. You can now simply extract the UMP archive and run it with one click on your laptops or Mac’s and start development. No licenses from IT required!
3. Easy development and test/quality servers
One of the constraints an Enterprise has always faced is the time and resource constraints in setting up hardware or provisioning Virtual Machines in their data centers. For a traditional DB server such as MS SQL or Oracle additional license/hardware/DBA resources were required and led to approvals and delays. Now with support for H2, the UMP service just needs to be started and automatically an H2 database will be created/used without any additional licenses or hardware requirement.
4. Single cloud instance sufficient for UMP
If you are provisioning instances in AWS or similar cloud services, a single instance is sufficient to unleash the full power of UMP.
