Microsoft has released a series of products that aim to offer an integrated development and data management platform to customers.

The products are Visual Studio 2005 beta release 2, the .net Framework 2.0 beta 2, and the SQL Server 2005 April Community Technology Preview for developers.

Microsoft has also announced the Go-Live licence programme for customers interested in deploying Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005 Express Edition immediately.

"Delivering Visual Studio 2005 beta 2 and the SQL Server 2005 April tech preview to customers is a milestone because it indicates that we have entered the final stages of the development cycle for both products," said Eric Rudder, senior vice-president of servers and tools at Microsoft.

"When we set out to develop these products we envisaged building a solution that offered unprecedented integration between development and the database to help our customers be more productive. With these releases, we have delivered on that promise and expect to drastically change the way our customers develop and use their applications."
