Nyköping, Sweden, Jan 26, 2012
Bendsoft Corporation announced today that it will release version 2.0 of its core software product for accessing data in Microsoft SharePoint, the Camelot .NET Connector, in May of 2012. The Camelot .NET Connector 2.0 will include an extensive suite of new features including an updated SQL syntax with JOIN and UNION support. The Camelot .NET Connector 1.1 is the latest version of Bendsoft’s industry-leading ADO.NET driver for connecting to Microsoft SharePoint, designed and built on open standards, enabling developers to query data in Microsoft SharePoint using standard SQL language. In combination with open source toolkits provided by Bendsoft, such as the Camelot SharePoint Integration Toolkit and SharePoint PHP Tools, it is the best solution for integrating SharePoint from virtually any other platform or programming language like PHP, Java or Objective-C.
The Camelot .NET Connector 2.0 will dramatically extend the core capabilities of the connector. This release will offer the first implementation of JOIN and UNION SQL commands that will work between any lists and columns in your SharePoint site. Advantages of this feature will be simplified integration with external applications and extended possibilities for data synchronization, data reporting and analytics inside or outside SharePoint.
Eric Herlitz, Co-Founder and Sales Director commented, “We are very excited to make this announcement, introducing ground-breaking capabilities of the Camelot .NET Connector that will most definitely lower the costs of integration and maintenance in many of our customer’s SharePoint projects.”
Ulf Engstrand, Co-Founder and Systems Architect, adds, “The Camelot .NET Connector in combination with our open source toolkits provide a unique solution that developers need to efficiently integrate SharePoint with other applications. Many of our customers have specifically asked for JOIN support and we feel that this is a natural step to take.”
Existing customers will be offered a free upgrade to Camelot .NET Connector version 2.0 when it becomes available. The new version will not break feature compatibility with version 1.1, but recompilation may be required.
