Menlo Park, California-headquartered Gupta Corp and Lotus Development Corp are to provide a common interface for access to SQL and Lotus Notes using Gupta SQLWindows applications. According to the companies, this will enable Lotus Notes sites to use SQLWindows applications to query both structured database data and the unstructured data stored by Notes. Gupta will also link the workgroup capabilities of Lotus Notes with the team programming features of its own client-server development tools. The aim of the project is to deliver enhancements to SQLWindows, Gupta’s client-server development tool, and Quest, the company’s end-user query tool, says Gupta. The first of these enhancements will be to mail-enable these tools, a development that is expected to be ready during the first quarter of 1994 via a maintenance release of SQLWindows 4.1. This will be followed in the second half of 1994 with releases of Gupta’s tools that will support the Notes Application Programming Interface. These, says Gupta, will enable applications developed with SQLWindows to read and write to Notes databases. Additionally, SQLWindows developers will be able to use Notes as a storage and software distribution system for the deployment of SQLWindows applications or their components, said a company spokesman. The Lotus-Gupta partnership is the latest development of Gupta’s Tools Integration for the Enterprise strategy, announced last August, which defines the interfaces to Gupta’s core tools technology.
