PrimeBase is a development platform for the production of client/server and web applications. It consists of 3 main products: the PrimeBase Database Server, the PrimeBase Application Server, and the PrimeBase Open Server, all of which are based on open standards.
The PrimeBase SQL Database Server is a relational Database Management System (DBMS) for Mac, UNIX and Windows platforms. The PrimeBase SQL Database Server supports all common database access standards (SQL, ODBC, JDBC, PHP, Perl, EOF, REALbasic and DAL) and protocols (TCP/IP, Shared Memory and Appletalk).
The PrimeBase Application Server allows rapid development and deployment of Web applications. The PrimeBase Application Server has many features that make implementing a Web application simple and efficient, including: an object-oriented programming environment and framework and multi-processor capabilities to ensure unlimited scalability.
The PrimeBase Open Server allows the PrimeBase Application Server or other applications using the PrimeBase Virtual Machine to connect to alternate data sources via PrimeBase Open Server plug-ins loaded by the PrimeBase Open Server. For example the Oracle plug-in enables you to access an Oracle database, or by loading the ODBC plug-in you will be able to access data servers via their ODBC drivers.
The software, whether on CD or downloaded from the internet, is "pre-installed". This means it is ready for use within minutes, just copy the software to your machine, unpack and start the application.
Documentation for PrimeBase including reference manuals and user guides is provided in PDF (Portable Document Format) and may be read and printed using Adobe Acrobat available, free of charge, from http://www.adobe.com.
