Prometheus releases new database software tool

Allows users to browse, search, share and develop new applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Prometheus Research has released a new database software tool called HT//SQL, which is a web application that web-enables databases in all industries.

By translating the language of the web (HTTP) into the language of databases (SQL), the software tool HT//SQL eliminates many of the traditional barriers to data access. Users of HT//SQL-enabled databases can browse, search, share, and develop new applications using an internet browser, the company said.

According to Prometheus, the new database software tool can be installed alongside a database and respects the database’s existing configuration and security scheme. It allows users to create URLs following simple rules, and the server would translate them into SQL queries, returning the results in a variety of browser- and application-ready formats like HTML, XML, JSON, and CSV.

The HT//SQL application also offers a range of SQL commands and functions. Communication both ways is through HTTP (or HTTPS), eliminating the need for an extra application layer, the company said.

Andrzej Pienczykowski, executive vice president at Prometheus Research, said: In the past, data consumers had to trade power for ease of use. They either learned to be a programmer or DBA, or they lived with limitations of the front-end web application. Anyone who can type a URL can now query a database.

“It’s the perfect solution for organizations that want their employees – or even the general public – to be able to leverage the full value of data without expending great amounts of energy or overtaxing their IT department.
