DataMgr 2.5 Alpha 1

It has been seven months since DataMgr 2.2 was released and now DataMgr 2.5 Alpha 1 is finally available. I have gotten quite a bit of help on this version, both in terms of ideas as well as code.

(What is DataMgr?)

New to DataMgr 2.5 Alpha 1:

With this release I am adding new features to the documentation as I add them. Note that you can view the documentation for any version just by indicating the version in the URL (it defaults to the most recent version in full release) or use the change log to view documentation for past versions.

Feel free to download DataMgr 2.5 Alpha 1 (zip) or use the repository for the Bleeding Edge Release. For the latest full release, use the DataMgr RIAForge page. DataMgr is open source and free for any use.

Hi Steve,

Congrats on your great work with DataMgr! Have you ever considered adding a file based option for database types? Something that would allow in memory queries but that could save table data to a file format like xml or maybe as .XLS files.

Thanks. I have thought about doing WDDX files (I even have support for 1.0 features for that format locally), but I haven't made the time to finish it. I have also thought about a RAM option where the data would only persist with DataMgr (for fast temporary data storage).

I hadn't considered an XLS option, but that would be possible with CF9's cfspreadsheet (or using CFPOI) and would be an interesting option.

Thanks for the thoughts!

These features would be very cool, being able to use DataMgr to deploy an application that accessed data but never needed to touch a datasource would be really handy. For small or portable apps it would be great so if you want a hand working on something like this just let me know where I should start :).
