Matisse Offers Interface Binding Source Code
The Matisse platform offers a powerful technology that enables developers around the world to implement new applications that require high performance managing complex data. In addition to its native SQL support, Matisse supports a broad range of language bindings including Java, C++, C,C# Python, Perl, PHP, and Eiffel. Several of these language bindings are being offered as open source software.

Matisse 8 is targeted for the developer community. Now available for free download, this new release supports the most popular server platforms including Sun Solaris, Linux, Windows NT/2000/XP, and Berkeley UNIX.

In addition to its greatly enhanced language and platform support, Matisse 8 extends its robust SQL implementation to bridge the standard relational DBMS development language with object methods, tools and languages. Matisse uses a standard SQL implementation to deliver native SQL ODBC/JDBC connectivity with Internet and database tools. Matisse supports ANSI SQL operations and extends the popular query language to provides full support for most object mechanisms including polymorphism, inheritance, and encapsulation. Matisse's native support for standard SQL makes it possible to migrate applications while leveraging the user's familiarity with SQL. For this reason Matisse 8 is the first database that can be termed SQL-Object.
