ValentinaDB ADK for Xojo is one of our oldest and best selling Xojo add-on products as it provides an ultra-fast, extremely flexible database system for your applications.

Omegabundle for Xojo 2021 includes royalty free deployment for macOS, Windows (x86), Linux (x86) and Raspbian (ARM7 / Raspberry PI). Porting from other databases such as SQLite is easy using Valentina Studio Pro (also included in Omegabundle for Xojo 2021).

Why move to Valentina DB for your apps?

  • Highly optimized for speed. Xojo users that create custom solutions for financial services and medical records have found that the time it takes to run complex queries against large data stores can provide excellent business results - "Ill send the results later today" becomes "Let me run that now while I have you on the phone."
  • Unique storage solution. ValentinaDB is incredibly flexible and customizable. If you need a secure, custom file format for your application, ValentinaDB is flexible enough to provide it. The more you optimize, the more you can leverage doing more with less (often much, much less verbose SQL commands)
  • Easy scaling from app to server. There is very little to do to scale up from a local application to a server-side solution with Valentina Server. Valentina Server incorporates both ValentinaDB and SQLite database servers within it

ValentinaDB ADK for Xojo saw numerous updates including speed enhancements for mass linking and unlinking of records, improved Xojo examples for both ValentinaDB and Valentina SQLite databases, improved testing and diagnosing and more.

Also see ValentinaDB ADK Key Features list if you've never looked at ValentinaDB before.

App Wrapper 4.3 is now available, with 46 new features, fixes and improvements to the premium Mac app post-processor. 14-Day FREE trial. You need App Wrapper to prepare your macOS based app for sale on the Mac App Store, Apple's official venue for purchasing apps for macOS.

A key driving factor behind App Wrapper 4 is being able to use App Wrapper for debugging, especially as Arm based Macs require all apps to be code signed. This created two major improvements over AW3. It also includes a complete overhaul of the scripting system, with limited options can now be configured directly in the Xojo IDE and configured from project constants.

If you purchase a copy of Omegabundle for Xojo 2021, you get a copy of App Wrapper 4.3!

It is compatible with macOS 10.13.6 High Sierra, macOS 10.14 Mojave, macOS 10.15 Catalina or macOS 11.0 Big Sur.8GB of RAM. 50MB of disk space. Xcode 10 or newer.

Your purchase of Omegabundle for Xojo 2021 includes a subscription to xDev Magazine, the professional's magazine for developing with Xojo. The latest issue is out for July / August 2021, issue 19.4:

  • The Need for Speed by Markus Winter Have you ever wondered which of two algorithms was faster? Sometimes there's a need to measure speed that's simpler than Xojo's built-in profiler”Markus demonstrates his method.
  • xDev Tools by Marc Zeedar Here at xDev Magazine we use a lot of Xojo-created tools to get our work done. Marc thought it would be interesting to show you some of the programs he's written to automate his publishing production.
  • Maps, Part 10 by Markus Winter Last issue Markus set up his plans for mapping GPS data. This time he shows how that works so you can now take data from a device like a Garmin and plot the route on a map within Xojo using MapKit and the MBS Plugins.
  • Exploring Cryptography, Part 2 by Eugene Dakin In his series on cryptography, Eugene explores something called the MonoAlphabetic Substitution Cipher. Yeah, say that three times fast. Perhaps it would be easier to just read his article!

Plus: GoalMonitor, event definitions, Zip archives, databases, programming careers, accessibility, and much more!

Your purchase of Omegabundle for Xojo 2021 includes a 10 issue subscription, the first four issues of 2021, and the 10 previous issues, in PDF format. If purchased singularly, it would cost you $160.

Here are some of the improvements since last year:


  • Improved formatting for line ends in reports (what happens when X isn’t there?)
  • Improved positioning of Report Objects, including fixed and relative positions
  • Improved Reporting Examples, esp for display on iOS
  • Support for MacOS on ARM
  • Meaningful Printer Errors. Now you can catch errors coming back from the printer.
  • Recursive Reports.Displaying hierarchical data is now possible
  • Expanded Zoom to x4 in Reports Editor (Valentina Studio Pro)
  • Reports and subreports now use the same JS context (global variables, etc)
  • SVG picture can now can be stored in a textual field. You can now specify such a field as a data source for the picture control
  • Alpha and Opacity properties are now supported for text and borders
  • New HTML Rendering Engine. Most HTML/CSS features are supported including text formatting, tables, floating elements, absolute positioning, anchors, embedded styles, CSS classes, most CSS selectors. Embedded and external CSS files supported.
  • HTML Rendering Vectorized. Printing a report to PDF, Postscript, or directly to a printer, rendered HTML is vectorized. TEXT is scalable and selectable in generated files and can be printed with the maximum printer resolution.
  • Support for SVG images in the Picture controls. When printing to vector formats (PDF, Postscript, SVG) SVG images are embedded in the document in vector form perfect for zooming and printing. SVG images can be stored in the report, database, external file, or even auto-generated


The same report projects can be viewed and “played back” within the free Valentina Studio and can include parameters to allow end users to customize the output. And they can be uploaded to Valentina Server and served across your network.

This book is included with Omegabundle for Xojo 2021 the $399.99 super bundle of all of the best tools, components and add-ons for use with building Xojo based applications!

Just about every issue of xDev Magazine has included a column on databases. In that column we go in-depth on many aspects of database use, from design to performance. There are tutorials on how to use key features to philosophical discussion on various techniques. There have also been articles on different databases, their advantages and disadvantages, and how to use them with Xojo.

Though many of these articles are old and some coding syntax has changed in more recent versions of Xojo, the basic concepts are timeless and invaluable.

Some of the topics covered include:


  • Analyzing Performance
  • Backup and Recovery Approach
  • Best Backup Practices
  • Big Data
  • Connecting Databases
  • Database Bindings
  • Database Concurrency Strategies
  • Database Design
  • Database Rules
  • Database Servers
  • Database Standards
  • Database Versioning
  • Design Patterns
  • Disaster Recovery
  • Enterprise Data Modeling Tools
  • Hadoop
  • Multi-User Applications
  • MySQL Tables
  • Object Relational Mapping
  • ODBC
  • Party Role Model
  • Path Enumeration Model
  • Performance Tips
  • PostgreSQL
  • Prepared Statements
  • Reporting
  • SQL
  • SQL Management Tools
  • Stored Procedures
  • Triggers and Views
  • User Interface
  • Plus Much More!


We’ve gathered nearly two decades of these database columns into a single book of over 400 pages. If you’re new to Xojo or a veteran, this is a terrific resource. The ebook is in PDF, EPUB, and Mobi (Kindle) formats.
