Leadership in standards based middleware innovation extends to Web Services

Burlington, MA, March 26, 2002 - OpenLink Software, Inc., a leading provider of enterprise middleware, announces the commercial release of Virtuoso 2.7 - the latest installment of its cross platform, multi-purpose, and multi-protocol server for SQL, XML, and Web Services. The new release enables the rapid creation, integration, hosting and deployment of Web Services that coexist with existing IS infrastructures.

Virtuoso enables the publishing of Persistent Stored Modules – SQL Stored Procedures, Java Objects, and .NET Objects – as SOAP, WSDL, and UDDI compliant Web Services. It also enables the creation of XML documents from SQL Databases on the fly, such that XML based access to disparate data can be used as the data foundation for current and next generation Web Services.
Virtuoso 2.7 is available for the following platforms: Windows®, Linux®, UNIX®, and Mac® OS X. It includes support for all ODBC and JDBC accessible databases.

"The new Virtuoso release simplifies the adoption and exploitation of the Web Services value proposition by providing seamless integration with existing application functionality without compromising security or performance”, said Kingsley Idehen, President & CEO of OpenLink Software. “Virtuoso underscores OpenLink’s leadership role in both innovation and development of standards compliant cross-platform middleware", he added.
“Virtuoso is ahead of the game in web services and provides a practical, easy to use technology to exploit this new way of connecting applications", said Martin Butler, Founder and Research Chair of Butler Group.

"In order to support the widest range of corporate customers for our leading wireless application service, Pervasic's back-end database engine must conform to the latest standards and provide robust, scalable, secure and efficient database performance. Virtuoso offers all of these capabilities, together with unique Virtual Database functionality that provides a highly effective solution to the problem of seamlessly integrating multiple customer databases. Virtuoso is a key element in Pervasic's wireless service platform", said Mark Potts, CEO Pervasic.
