CommonGround Softworks Inc. Announces
Qilan™ for Mac OS X public beta

HOOKSETT, NEW HAMPSHIRE – January 8, 2001 – CommonGround Softworks Inc. today announces Qilan for Mac OS X Public Beta.

"Qilan is a database system designed to operate on a web server. It is a complete 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 is our fully native "cocoa" OS X Server application that we are porting to OS X Public Beta."

"Qilan can be used by developers who are looking for a time efficient tool to build data-driven web sites. 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 for OS X server provides database adaptors for Frontbase, Helix, Openbase and Oracle."

"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 graphical user environment. 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."

"We have been steadily improving Qilan in the Mac OS X Server environment. We are now deploying Java standards based technology for a wider range of database access under the Mac OS X Public Beta"

Qilan for OS X Public Beta will be exhibited in the MacTech Central Pavilion at MacWorld San Franciso 2001.
