Jetpack is a set of ActiveX controls designed specifically for Jet database applications. Jetpack has taken many of the features found in QUERYer, such as visual querying, table designer, database organiser, record find, data import/export, etc... and made them available to other database developers to use with minimum effort. Can be used in any COM-based development language with minimal effort and very little coding.
Jetpack is a collection of ActiveX controls designed to enhance any COM based development language with minimal effort and very little coding. Database developers can use the Jetpack controls to build a client application using whatever languages and tools they are most familiar with, including Microsoft Visual Basic, Visual C++, Visual J++, Borland Delphi, Powersoft Powerbuilder, and Micro Focus Object Cobol.
Jetpack control's are designed to be highly functional. For example, adding the Table Design control to your form at design time and a single line of code gives you all the functionality needed to create or modify a Jet database table including fields, indexes, properties and attributes. Adding the Queryer control to an application and setting a couple of properties, gives you a fully- featured visual ad-hoc querying tool that allows users to interrogate a wide range of data sources without any knowledge of SQL.
The Jetpack control is a multiple control comprising 11 different controls. Each control is considered to be a 'light-weight' ocx control that can be added individually to your application as needed. The bulk of the code in Jetpack is shared by the controls - this avoids a lot of duplicated code. Alternatively the individual controls in Jetpack can be purchased separately. As individual controls they have a smaller memory footprint. The table below illustrates how the Jetpack controls are packaged and sold.
