VenturaSQL 4 Web API

The VenturaSQL 4 middleware is exposed as a Web API using an ASP.NET Controller. The requestData byte array created by the Recordsets on the client and transmitted to the server in binary format. The VenturaServerEngine will perform the requested database operations and return the data to the client in binary format. The client then unpacks the data and fills the records in Recordsets.

The VenturaSQL 4 server library will only be available for .NET 5 or higher. The libraries for .NET Framework 4.7 and ASP.NET Core 3.x will be discontinued.
