March 17, 2008 - Embarcadero unveiled its professional-grade SQL development tool, PowerSQL.


Embarcadero PowerSQL, the company's fourth tool built on the Eclipse framework, is a SQL Integrated Development Environment (IDE) that can be installed as a standalone application (Eclipse RCP) or as an Eclipse plug-in. It offers native support for Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase and DB2 for LUW, as well as JBDC support for other prominent database management systems (DBMSs) such as MySQL. PowerSQL runs on both Windows and Linux operating systems.


"We are seeing an upsurge in the number of traditional developers who are taking on more database work and using SQL on a somewhat regular basis," said John F. Andrews, president and CEO of Evans Data Corporation. "In fact, according to research we conducted in September 2007, SQL is the second most popular language among Eclipse users, with 64 percent using it at least some of the time."


Features of the new Embarcadero PowerSQL tool include: SQL Code Assist, SQL Project Insight, Migration Wizard, Data Source Explorer and formatting profiles.


Embarcadero PowerSQL is available in three versions worldwide: personal, standard and professional.
