DataBlade Developers Kit User's Guide

The HCL OneDB™ DataBlade® Developers Kit Users Guide describes how to use OneDB DataBlade Developers Kit (DBDK) tools to develop and package DataBlade modules.

A DataBlade module extends the functionality of HCL OneDB to handle data with user-defined routines or to handle nontraditional kinds of data, such as full text, images, video, spatial, and time series data.

These topics are written for experienced C, C++, or Java™ programmers who are comfortable writing libraries to support applications. Use these topics to develop DataBlade modules that extend your HCL OneDB database server.

If you are unfamiliar with DataBlade modules, read HCL OneDB DataBlade Module Development Overview before you read these topics.

Check the OneDB DataBlade Developers Kit (DBDK) release notes for software compatibility requirements for HCL OneDB and HCL OneDB Client Software Development Kit (Client SDK).

To use DBDK to develop your DataBlade module in a Windows™ development environment, you need to install the following software:
  • Microsoft™ Visual C++ 6.0
  • Netscape Navigator 4.0 (or later) or Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.0 (or later)

To use BladePack to package your DataBlade module with an interactive installation for Windows, you need an InstallShield professional license.
