Database.com is the database at the heart of Force.com, so you can use all of the Force.com APIs and toolkits to tap into the power of Database.com today. But what if you want SQL-based access to Database.com too? Great news!
Progress Software today announced the current availability of JDBC and future availability of ODBC drivers that allow SQL-based applications to work with Database.com. These SQL-92 compliant drivers enable developers that are already familiar with SQL to use Database.com without having to learn new skills. You can execute SELECTs, joins, INSERTs, UPDATEs, DELETEs and lots more with these drivers from Progress. Watch this short video for a demo.
Head on over to the Progress Software Data Connections blog for more information about this exciting announcement.
