OpenLink Software, Inc., a provider of universal data access and enterprise information integration middleware, announces Virtuoso Universal Server 3.2, the latest edition of its cross platform Virtual Database for SQL, XML, and Web Services. The new release builds on prior .NET CLR integration functionality across both the Microsoft and Mono variants of .NET CLR and associated Frameworks, on all Mono-supported platforms, including Microsoft Windows. Virtuoso 3.2 also includes new XML data types; SQLX-compliant SQL-to-XML functionality; XML for Analysis; Weblog Engine Services; and additional Web Services protocol stack implementations, such as WS-Security and WS-Routing.
Virtuoso provides access to heterogeneous data sources - Databases, XML and other documents, and Web Services - through industry standard data access interfaces such as XML, XQuery, XPath, SQL, ODBC, JDBC, OLE DB, and ADO.NET. It also integrates 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. Furthermore, the new release extends its Virtual Web Application Server functionality to include support for Python and Perl, in addition to ongoing support for .NET, ASP, PHP, and Java Server Pages. Virtuoso 3.2 is now available for download from OpenLink's Web site.
