SQL tool beefs DBMS options

by Laurie Flynn

San Francisco: Proponent is privately demonstrating at this week's NeXTWORLD Expo its upcoming SQL database tool, which has been quietly under development since 1989.

Helping fill a gap in the NeXT software market, the product will provide an integrated set of tools positioned for medium- and large-size companies. It will include both a Designer Tool and a User Tool that connect to the SQL server; the tools include front-end, forms-generation, and other relational database capabilities.

Proponent recently disclosed that SBC/OC Services, a partnership of Swiss Bank Corporation and O'Connor Partners, is providing Proponent with advance fees, and will be the product's first customer when it ships in the first half of this year. Pricing has not been set.
