FrontBase Inc. has announced
FBScriptAgent. The software runs on Mac OS X and provides scriptable control to FrontBase Relational Database Server 3.5. It’s a free download from the company’s Web site.
FBScriptAgent works hand-in-hand with AppleScript, of course. The software forwards commands to the FrontBase database. It sends raw SQL commands, and it also starts, stops, creates and deletes FrontBase databases.
The software also allows scripters to deal with metadata and data handlers, making it possible for FBScriptAgent to help manage large databases without being overwhelmed by large numbers of records.
FrontBase Relational Database Server runs on multiple platforms including Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, FreeBSD and Windows NT/2000.
