CommonGround Softworks Inc. has released a Mac OS X 10.2 compatible version of its Qilan database tool.
Qilan allows Web sites to communicate with single or multiple “backend” data sources. The Qilan graphic environment builds query and report logic that reside on the Web server. This logic is applied across supported database vendor products. Supported databases include FileMaker Pro, Frontbase, Helix Server, MS SQL Server, Openbase, Informix and Paradox.
The new version (2.7) adds two new database adapters; Microsoft Access and MySQL, according to
MacTech magazine .
Qilan 2.7 is available for download as a time limited trial. A Web-based process will allow access to the file download area and generation of trial enablement keys. The Qilan 2.7 upgrade is available to existing Qilan users for US$99; full pricing information is available on the
product Web site. Educational discounts are also available.
