Burlington, MA. January 8, 2002 - OpenLink Software, Inc., industry and technology leaders in the development and deployment of secure, high-performance database connectivity drivers for ODBC™ and JDBC™, announces the commercial release of version 4.2 of its Universal Data Access Drivers Suite™ for Mac® OS X.

The new products release includes performance and functionality enhancements across the entire portfolio of OpenLink’s high-performance database connectivity drivers for ODBC and JDBC. Support is provided for; Oracle®, Microsoft® SQL Server™, IBM®, DB2® and Informix™, Sybase®, CA-Ingres®, Progress®, PostgresSQL®, MySQL®, and any other ODBC compliant database engines.

This product release includes the much anticipated high-performance Single-Tier Drivers that enable direct access to backend database engines without the installation of any additional software on the Mac OS X clients or the backend database server machines. A typical use of these drivers would be direct connectivity connections to Windows™- hosted databases such as Microsoft SQL Server, and or Linux®/UNIX®- hosted databases such as MySQL and PostgresSQL.

“With Release 4.2, UDA for Mac OS X re-emphasizes our unwavering commitment to unveiling the universal importance of database independence to application developers and end-users alike on the Macintosh.
