EveryWare ships Butler SQL 2.0
Butler SQL, now accessible via ODBC and bundled with CLEAR:Access from
Sterling Software Inc.
San Jose, CA– May 13, 1996 — EveryWare Development Corp. announced the
immediate availability of Butler SQL version 2.0, their client/server SQL
database for the Macintosh and Power Macintosh. Unlike other client/server
databases, which lock you into proprietary APIs and front-ends, Butler SQL is
based on open-standards: the Data Access Manager (DAM), ANSI SQL and the Open
Database Connectivity (ODBC) standard. This gives users choice and flexibility
when selecting front-end applications used to manage and query back-end
Butler SQL has been optimized for ODBC, a database access standard developed by
Microsoft. Its intent is to give applications a standard method of accessing
data from diverse sources as well as providing a faster method of data
retrieval. By supporting ODBC, users realize a 3 to 4 times speed improvement
over Butler SQL 1.5 when retrieving large sets of data as well as enabling
Windows clients to access Butler SQL.
“Now that Butler SQL supports ODBC and TCP/IP, connections can be made from
Macintosh, Windows 95, Windows NT, and Windows 3.1 client applications. For
customers, this means they can choose the most suitable front-end for their
needs from a large number of 3rd party ODBC client applications. For
developers, this means Butler SQL can be used as a cost-effective development
environment for ODBC client/server solutions,” said Greg Hemstreet, Vice
President of Research and Development, EveryWare Development Corp.
Butler SQL Reporting Tool
EveryWare Development Corp. has finalized an agreement with Sterling Software
Inc., one of the ten largest software companies in the world, to bundle a copy
of its high-performance SQL reporting tool, CLEAR:Access, with every copy of
Clear:Access is a visual query and reporting environment that assists end-users
with its quick data retrieval and easy to use professional report generation
capabilities. With every copy of Butler SQL a single user license of
CLEAR:Access is included. CLEAR:Access enables users to create database queries
with drag-and-drop simplicity. The product can be used to create integrated
solutions by linking reports and query results with other desktop applications
as well as automating data access using scripts and report templates.
