Daffodil Software Open Sources replication tool at SourceForge.net

"Daffodil Software, a leading Java database vendor, today announced that it has made Daffodil Replicator an Open Source product.

Daffodil Replicator will provide a unique option to users in certain respects. It supports heterogeneous databases including Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, PostgreSQL, Derby and Daffodil DB. It is platform-independent by virtue of being built in Java, and supports bi-directional data replication. Now Open Source, it offers users the power to understand its architecture and code, and also modify it if required.

Daffodil Replicator has been made available under a dual-licensing policy (GNU GPL and Commercial License). Herein, it is offered free-of-cost under both licenses. It is fully backed by Daffodil Software, who also provide affordable commercial support for the product under its One$/day support program.

The released code includes all capabilities of the latest version (v1.4). These include bi-directional data synchronization, publish and subscribe model with server and client architecture, conflict detector and resolution algorithms and data synchronization between heterogeneous databases that support JDBC drivers, triggers, procedures and auto-increment columns.

In the beta launch stage itself, Daffodil Replicator has gained wide popularity at SourceForge.net. According to SourceForge.net statistics, Daffodil Replicator project is placed among the top 10% projects based on its activity and number of downloads.

“By releasing Replicator’s source code, we are building upon our commitment of being transparent and open to users. This move will empower developers with an extra-ordinary replication tool free-of-cost. We feel that Open Source will give an extra advantage to users as they can be a part of the development process”, commented Daffodil CEO, Yogesh Agarwal.

“GNU GPL is the most popular OSI license and is coveted by developers associated with various open source projects. Organizations developing commercial applications can opt for the free Commercial License, which places no restrictions on using derivatives or enhancements, and selling or redistribution of the software”, said Sachin Garg, Manager (Business Development) for Daffodil.

Commenting on the release, Ashish Srivastava, Daffodil’s Technical Manager added, “The product is backed by a strong community of developers who have experience working in different environments and who are determined to make it (Daffodil Replicator) more robust and scalable.”

The decision to open source Daffodil Replicator has come close on the heels of its much-publicized and successful release of One$DB (a free version of Daffodil DB)
