San Mateo, California --September 2, 1998 -- POET Software, a leading vendor of object databases and XML repositories, today announced that its POET Object Server Suite and POET Content Management Suite provide full support for the Microsoft® Visual Studio 6.0 development system.
POET Object Server Suite 5.1 (POET OSS) provides a seamless mechanism for storing Java and C++ objects without requiring the disassembly and mapping required by relational databases. According to Meta Group, this reduces source code by 60%, facilitating faster time to market. POET OSS also includes a tool called SQL Object Factory, which allows Visual StudioU96based applications built on POET OSS to seamlessly persist their objects in Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle or IBM DB/2 databases without any modification or recompilation. POET OSS is the best solution for Windows®-based applications: because it is optimized for Windows platforms, POET OSS offers superior integration, the smallest kernel and the best performance.
POET Content Management Suite 1.0 (POET CMS), built upon the POET OSS, is a complete solution for XML storage, access and manipulation. POET CMS provides an XML database server, an XML management client and an SDK. The server and the client provide end-users with an out-of-the-box XML content management solution. The SDK provides developers with APIs for both the application layer and the underlying database, providing complete flexibility to extend or alter its functionality. In addition, POET CMS user interfaces are implemented as COM objects that can be easily plugged into applications for rapid prototyping and application development. Developers can also embed the entire functionality of POET CMS in their applications. So, whether you need an out-of-the-box solution, pre-built XML-savvy COM objects or a complete embedded XML repository, POET CMS provides the solution you need.
"POET's object database and XML repository provide the ideal solution for developers using Microsoft Visual Studio to build enterprise-capable applications whether they are using C++ objects, Java objects, XML objects or any combination of these," said Dirk Bartels, president and CEO of POET Software.
