Full feature SQL

Mimer SQL Mobile implements the ISO SQL standard, and Mimer plays an active role as a member of the ISO standardization committee for SQL. This means that Mimer SQL Mobile supports important enterprise class SQL features like ACID transactions, stored procedures, triggers, fine-grained access control and views.

Mimer SQL Mobile includes support for a wide range of APIs. This includes Type 4 Java JDBC drivers (including J2ME), fully managed data providers for .NET (including the .NET Compact Framework) and a native ODBC driver. There is also an Embedded SQL pre-processor for C. It is also possible to use a small footprint low-level API in C.

Performance and scalability

Mimer SQL Mobile is an enterprise class database manager, based on technology capable of handling workloads of hundreds or even thousands of concurrent users generating high transaction rates with Terabytes of data. This guarantees short response times and a high degree of parallelism even as the amount of data and number of applications grow. The high performance and scalability of Mimer SQL Mobile make it possible to reuse the data management solutions developed today also in future mobile device products.

Small footprints

Mimer SQL Mobile has the industry’s best footprint-functionality ratio. This means that Mimer SQL Mobile offers more functionality in a smaller footprint than any other database product. It is possible to customize functionality and footprint with the different editions of Mimer SQL Mobile. The smallest edition is possible to run in 30 Kbytes of RAM, and still with full SQL functionality.

Mobile awareness

Mimer SQL Mobile includes several mobile aware features. A Mimer SQL Mobile database is always guaranteed to be correct and consistent after a power failure (for example a battery removal). If parts of the database reside on removable storage (for example memory stick), this data can be accessed totally transparent from the applications whenever the removable storage is inserted. The dynamic database cache makes it possible to get best possible database performance during for example a database build-up, while other application can utilize the available RAM when the Mimer SQL database server is idle. With the database upgrade feature, it is possible to upgrade a Mimer SQL database by uploading one single file to the device. This file is then used in a totally automatic database upgrade. The footprint and functionality of Mimer SQL Mobile can be customized based on the customer’s specific demands.

Zero Maintenance

Mimer SQL Mobile is a completely maintenance free database server. The Mimer SQL Mobile database kernel is used in mission-critical systems all over the world, which verifies the robustness and high quality of the product. There is no need to run any utilities or other maintenance tools to for example rebuild the database storage structures to reclaim performance or storage. The non-locking concurrency control system totally avoids any unexpected application failures due to database locks. In an environment where the system must work standalone for extended periods of time, Mimer SQL Mobile is the perfect solution.

Cross Platform

Mimer SQL Mobile is available on a wide range of mobile platforms like Android, BREW, Linux, Nucleus, OSE, Symbian OS and Windows Mobile with identical functionality and application programming interfaces enabling true application portability for all data management functionality between different mobile platforms. This portability includes 100% reuse of the database design and data models. It is also possible to adapt Mimer SQL Mobile to custom-specific hardware and operating system environments to achieve an even higher degree of portability.

Multilingual Support

Mimer SQL Mobile includes full support for the Unicode standard. This standard defines all alphabetical and non-alphabetical (ideographic) character sets of the world. Mimer SQL Mobile also supports SQL Collations, and has pre-defined support for search and sorting for more than 135 languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean and many Indian languages. A special language collation called “current_collation” can be used to make applications independent of a specific language. Instead, when the current collation (=language) is changed, all applications will automatically search and sort according to the new collation. This is ideal functionality when the language setting on a phone is changed.

The multilingual search and sorting is implemented in a very dynamic and efficient manner both from a performance and footprint point of view.

In resource constrained environments it is possible to customize which languages to support in the database server. It is also possible for non-database applications to use the Mimer SQL Mobile multilingual module stand-alone (as a run-time library).

Concurrent database access

Mimer SQL Mobile implements a client/server architecture with full concurrency and ACID transactional support. This makes it possible for different applications to simultaneously read and update the database under control of the Mimer SQL database manager. All database concurrency is controlled without any locking, which means that no locking overhead is introduced and deadlocks cannot occur. The multi-threaded Mimer SQL Mobile database server makes it possible to fully utilize also multiprocessing hardware (multi-core).

Well proven product with flexible licensing

Mimer SQL Mobile is a commercial product developed by Mimer Information Technology AB in Sweden, which also controls all the IPRs for Mimer SQL Mobile. The database server technology in Mimer SQL Mobile is used successfully since decades in many mission-critical systems all over the world. Another example of a Mimer SQL Mobile customer is one of the world’s top-five mobile device manufacturers. There is a long-term roadmap for the Mimer SQL Mobile product, which includes new features and other enhancements. This roadmap is decided in close cooperation with device manufacturers in the mobile industry. The Mimer SQL Mobile functionality can be extended with pre-integrated add-on products like face detection/recognition and hard real-time support.

Device manufacturers that use Mimer SQL Mobile in their products have access to priority support from the skilled support and development teams of Mimer. Mimer SQL Mobile is licensed under a flexible commercial business model.
