InterSystems: The power behind what matters   
Search:  


InterSystems IRIS™ provides lightweight Java APIs for easy database access to relational tables, objects, and multidimensional storage. See Using Java JDBC with InterSystems IRIS for relational table access and Persisting Java Objects with InterSystems IRIS XEP for object access. This book describes the Native API for multidimensional storage.
The Native API provides direct access to globals (tree-based sparse arrays used to implement the multidimensional storage model). These native data structures provide very fast, flexible storage and retrieval. InterSystems IRIS uses globals to structure data as objects or relational tables, but you can use the Native API to implement your own data structures.
The following chapters discuss the main features of the Native API:
There is also a detailed Table of Contents.
