SQLBase7-SA is a SQLAlchemy driver/dialect for the Centura SQLBase database, specifically version 7.5.1.

About the Project

From what I can tell, SQLBase is still an actively-developed database, but it is no longer owned by Centura (see here).  Also, the current version (according to this page, as of 25 Apr 2010) is 11.5, so I have no idea how useful this project will be for versions of SQLBase more recent than 7.5.1.

This project exists only for the sake of providing read-only access to legacy data, specifically that used by the CAM32 Point of Sale software.  It's possible that it could allow writing data, etc., but I personally won't be adding any such features unless/until the need arises.

I don't expect there to be much of anyone using SQLBase 7.5.1 at this point (besides perhaps other CAM32 users), but if you do happen to need additional functionality from this project or just have questions or comments, feel free to drop me a line at lance@edbob.org.


The code is released under the GNU General Public License, version 3.

It is available at PyPI, so the easiest way to get the package is with the command:

      # easy_install SQLBase7-SA

Alternatively, the Downloads page has built eggs.  Again, this project is extremely specific to my needs, so I'm only building eggs for Python 2.5 and 2.6 at this point.  If you happen to need something else then please contact me.
