This month Data Junction Corp will roll out a trio of programs to move, mine and convert data, starting with a standalone data conversion engine designed for data replication and migration for NT and Unix servers. The DJ:Engine, a 32-bit data conversion engine written in C++, is the heart of Data Junction’s conversion architecture and consists of the company’s core data drive modules. The program is a pure execution engine – no user interfaces or other code gets in the way – that does automatic, run-time data transformations. The Austin, Texas company naturally suggests that users design the front-ends for DJ:Engine with its own new Data Junction for Windows, DJWin 6.0 graphical design and execution tool. DJWin 6.0 is a 32-bit NT/95 rewrite of the company’s existing tool that is apparently five times faster than the previous 16-bit version. The program includes a graphical front-end that can be used with DJWin or with its own engine. DJWin is the choice when the conversion is going to be run on some other computer as a standalone process. DJWin converts most types of structured data, the company says hundreds of formats are supported, into any other desired data format. DJ:Engine will be $1,500 on NT, $2,500 on HP-UX, SCO Unix, Solaris and AIX. DJWin will be $1,000. Finally, this month, Data Junction is also going to start shipping a 32-bit version of its Cambio text mining tool for NT/95. Cambio for Windows 6.0 is a $500 tool that can capture data fields from just about anywhere, extracting them from something as simple as a print file or as complex as an EBCDIC record. Cambio then exports the text in dBase, Access, FoxPro, Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, Quattro or delimited ASCII, or can send it to DJWin for more sophisticated format translations.
