CommonGround Softworks Inc. Announces Qilan™ version 1.2

HOOKSETT, NEW HAMPSHIRE – August 6, 2000 – CommonGround Softworks Inc. today announces the release of Qilan version 1.2.

"This release makes numerous improvements to our software development tool for producing powerful internet database systems. Qilan provides database adaptors for Frontbase, Helix, Openbase and Oracle. In version 1.2 we have added improvements to speed the construction of Qilan web sites and improve performance with the latest releases of FrontBase and OpenBase. The 1.2 release is a free upgrade for existing Qilan users."

Other new features include:

  • New "Capture" operator tag
  • Improved debug and SQL error logging
  • Improvements to copying, dragging, duplicating and pasting multiple Qilan objects.
  • Improvements to import and export of external database schema
  • Improved SQL generation

The new features enhance the development environment for the creation of user entry/output screens, logical data manipulation and data base access. With Qilan, the developer can easily link SQL database engines with the world wide web.

"Qilan can be used by developers who don't like to program. Developers do not have to know or rely upon SQL or remember complicated or intricate symbols to create complex queries, manipulate data, or access databases."

"Qilan works with your existing databases and web development tools. Developers merely need to create an access to their database. Qilan provides the tools to build complete professional web-based applications based on that data."

"We feel that developers will appreciate the Qilan interface enhancements. The environment provides the power and flexibility of working in a code level language (iteration and recursion are supported!), without syntax problems and better construction speed. A developer can deliver a product to the customer faster."

"Qilan provides a cost effective, integrated, and easy-to-use tool to provide an Enterprise strength business presence on the web. Qilan has the strength to query and transfer data to multiple databases in different locations on the internet using a single web page "

The Qilan development environment is a native Mac OS X server application.
