A new version of Sybase?s SQL Server database is under development to provide content management for corporate Web sites. The strategy was outlined at the International Sybase User Group in Barcelona this week, and the product is scheduled to ship at the end of the year.
Codenamed SQL Server Professional, the product will enable companies to create database-driven Web sites, with all Web content stored in the database and managed alongside other data assets. It will consist of SQL Server 11, combined with NetImpact Dynamo, a Web application server. This will support unified management of database and Internet information, and allow relational data to be published directly on to Web pages by generating dynamic HTML. For users, this brings personalised self-service on the Net a step closer.
For developers, Dynamo supports Netscape and Microsoft Internet APIs and allows them to create templates from HTML pages with embedded SQL scripts, to cut development time. It can also work with other Web servers.
?The relational database is the primary business technology platform and our customers want to leverage our proven DBMS tools to manage content for Internet business applications,? said David Hsieh, vice president of enterprise marketing.
Integration of Web sites with relational database is seen as essential for corporate uptake of Internet applications, and the main database vendors are racing to provide these facilities.
