Paradigma Ships Valentina 4, Reports, Client for iPhone

Paradigma Software ( announces the release of
ultra fast Valentina DB technology release 4 and the addition of several new
products to the Valentina DB product line, including advanced reporting
capabilities and new connectivity with the Apple iPhone.

Valentina DB 4 provides over a year of development improvements to all
Valentina based database products. Some features shared by all Valentina DB
products include:

    * SQL to XML. Generate XML data from an SQL query from any Valentina DB
    * SET/GET Properties in SQL. Use SQL to set and get properties of
database objects using Stored Procedures
    * ISP Host Features. CREATE/DROP/GRANT/REVOKE User rights
    * Projects. Valentina DB 4 introduces a new project file format for
storing databases, reports

Valentina DB also incorporates hundreds of user requested improvements and
fixes to improve overall robustness on all three operating systems: Windows,
Linux and Mac OS X. Valentina 4 is the result of over one year of
Valentina Reports

A major addition to the Valentina DB product line is Valentina Reports and
Valentina Reporting Services. Valentina Reports is a powerful, report
creation and generation engine that drops right into the Valentina DB
kernel. Because it interfaces directly with the Valentina DB kernel, it is
possible to dynamically generate reports from any Valentina DB ADK or from
any Valentina Server product. Reports features include:

    * Broad Compatibility. Generate reports for every major development
environment, from Apple Cocoa framework applications to .net to C++
applications built on Linux to Adobe Director. Over 18+ platforms supported.
    * XML Enriched PDF Generation. Automatically generate business ready,
formatted  PDF reports with embedded XML, automatically assigned passwords
and permissions.
    * Generate Reports from SQL. Valentina SQL can return a report right
into a BLOB field of a cursor. This opens access to reports for such
standard APIs as ODBC.
    * Charts and Graphs. Build applications that produce rich charts and
graphs from numeric, financial, statistical and business data from your
Valentina database.
    * Sub Reports. Combine multiple sub-reports into a single main report
presentation; generate reports from multiple sources and display them side
by side.
    * Web and Graphic Exports. Make your reports immediately useful to your
users by exporting in a variety of presentation formats: HTML, JPG, PNG,
LaTeX, text and more.
    * Barcodes. 36 industry standard barcodes, such as ISBN, EAN,
Pharmacode, POSTNET and more and from within your Valentina DB enabled

Valentina Reports is an optional add-on for Valentina ADK and Valentina
Developer Network products. Unlimited Report deployment is available for as
little as $200.
