Virtual Database Integrates Disparate
SQL, XML, and Web Services Data Sources

London, England, April 8, 2003 - OpenLink Software, a leading provider of universal data access and enterprise information integration middleware, announces the commercial release of Virtuoso 3.0 — the latest edition of its cross platform Virtual Database for SQL, XML, and Web Services. The new release enables transparent and concurrent access in real-time to heterogeneous data sources that include ODBC/JDBC/OLE DB/.NET–accessible databases, XML documents, and data-set oriented Web Services.

Virtuoso provides access to heterogeneous data sources through industry standard data access interfaces such as XML, XQuery, XPath, SQL, ODBC, JDBC, OLE DB, and ADO.NET. It also integrates transparently with runtime environments for distributed computing such as Microsoft .NET, Mono, and J2EE, enabling the creation and hosting of WSDL-compliant XML Web Services, Stored Procedures, Functions, Triggers, and User Defined Types written in Java or any .NET bound language.
Virtuoso 3.0 is now commercially available for the following platforms: Windows®, Mac® OS X, Linux®, and UNIX®. "Virtuoso 3.0 is aimed squarely at the biggest corporate IS infrastructure challenge of the day — integration of heterogeneous islands of data, and disparate application logic," said Kingsley Idehen, President & CEO of OpenLink Software. "Virtuoso is the only product available today that guarantees alleviation of systems integration challenges without compromising broader IS infrastructure choices such at the application development environment, operating system, or back-end database engine(s). Once again, an OpenLink product release underscores our continued leadership in the area of standards-compliant, cross-platform middleware," he added.

Virtuoso 3.0 is now available for download from OpenLink's web site at
