Alpha speeds up web database building

Alpha Software has launched Data-2-the-Web for MySQL, to allow developers to create web-enabled databases faster. The company said its tool can build web databases “in less than 10% of the time it takes using languages like PHP, ASP, Perl and JavaScript”.

Data-2-the-Web has been ‘MySQL Network Certified’, meaning the Alpha solution has gone through compatibility testing to make sure it works seamlessly with the MySQL open source database server and tools.

Alpha says that non-programmers, who have never had the ability to connect websites to databases or create web-based applications – such as order entry, contact management, registration systems, lead tracking, catalogs, appointment scheduling, status reporting and e-commerce applications – can now do so using its new system.

“With Data-2-the-Web for MySQL, non-programmers can build powerful web applications connected to MySQL databases,” said Bertrand Matthelié, MySQL director of alliances. “We are impressed by the significant productivity gains that even experienced programmers can achieve through the use of Data-2-the-Web.”

Data-2-the-Web for MySQL comes in two components. The Data-2-the-Web for MySQL Builder, for designing and testing applications locally, is free.

The Data-2-the-Web for MySQL Server is listed at £370, but is now available at an introductory price of £105 for an unlimited number of users per server.
