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.
