AUSTIN, Texas, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- IronGrid, Inc., a provider of lightweight Java development tools, today unveiled IronEye SQL 1.1. New functionality embedded in IronEye SQL includes an Ant task which allows performance testing to now be included in the software build process. "Performance testing has always been relegated to the end of the software development process because it was too difficult to test performance midstream," says Clifford Sharples, president and CEO of IronGrid, Inc. "Now with IronEye SQL's new Ant integration, including performance testing in the build process is simple." "Most development managers agree that performance testing should be done more often during the development process, but because of the lack of discipline and tools to execute this vision, most development managers can not act on this instinct. Now with IronEye SQL 1.1, performance testing is done automatically with each build and has made our lives much easier," states Jeremy Bencker, founder and CTO of AptRatings.com. "After only 2 days of using IronEye SQL 1.1, we cut our app's startup time from 75 seconds to under 30. In addition, we were able to pinpoint and cache several redundant, high- volume queries, which translated into a decrease of our database's operating load by 30%." IronEye SQL 1.1 is available for a 30-day free trial download at www.irongrid.com . IronEye SQL 1.1 is available through May 31, 2003, at the introductory price of $195 for a single user license, and $395 thereafter.
