HOOKSETT, NEW HAMPSHIRE - December 28, 1999 - CommonGround Softworks Inc.
today announces a new software development tool for producing powerful
internet database systems.
"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 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.
The initial release of Qilan uses Openbase as the backend database."
"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."
"Qilan provides a cost effective, integrated, and easy-to-use tool to
provide an Enterprise strength business presence on the web."
The Qilan development environment is a native Mac OS X application.
A beta version of Qilan will be exhibited in the Developer Central Pavilion
at MacWorld San Franciso 2000.
CommonGround Softworks Inc. is a recently formed software company whose
mission is to create Internet database connectivity software for the Mac OS.
