Blue World Lasso Professional 5 Standard Edition Product Details
Lasso Professional 5 Standard Edition New Features
Lasso Professional 5 Standard Edition provides all of the standard features expected in an advanced Web application server. Standard Edition includes the following new features over its predecessor Lasso Web Data Engine 3.x.
Integrated SQL database - Lasso MySQL provides a high-performance embedded SQL database server based on industry leading MySQL.
Robust Programming - LDML 5 introduces support for arrays and maps; sessions; regular expressions; encoding controls at page, tag and sub-tag levels; BlowFish, Base64 and MD-5 encryption; advanced error handling including Fail, Handle and Protect routines; and file upload. Sending email is no longer dependent upon Java and event scheduling has been simplified and enhanced. Named inlines provide enhanced control of inline actions.
Advanced Administration and Security - The administration interface and functionality have been completely redesigned and dramatically enhanced. Administration is divided into five new sections; Setup, Build, Browse, Monitor and Support. The Setup section provides controls for global settings, exporting/importing settings, enabling/disabling data sources and tags, and defining users and groups. Components of Build, Browse, Monitor and Support are explained below.
Data Source Support - Beyond the embedded Lasso MySQL database, Lasso Professional 5 introduces direct support for external MySQL databases via Lasso Connector for MySQL and direct support for FileMaker® Pro databases via Lasso Connector for FileMaker Pro. Other data source connectors will be available via third parties.
Platform and Web Server Support - Lasso Professional 5 introduces support for Mac OS X and continues support for Windows 2000/XP. Lasso Professional 5 will include built-in support for Apache on Mac OS X, IIS on Windows 2000/XP and WebSTAR V on Mac OS X. Support for Red Hat Linux is scheduled for a future release.
Distributed Architecture - Lasso Professional 5 introduces a new distributed architecture offering enhanced flexibility and scalability. Lasso Service is the core of Lasso Professional 5 and is installed as a separate application from the Web server software. Lasso Web server connector establishes connectivity between the Web server and Lasso Service and is installed as a plug-in or module in the Web server. Lasso Service and Lasso Web server connectors can co-exist on the same machine or on separate computers communicating via TCP/IP.
Database Builder - The Lasso Administration Build section includes Lasso Database Builder for creating and editing the database schema of Lasso MySQL and MySQL data sources. LDML 5 also includes new [Database_...] tags providing custom creation and editing of SQL database schema.
Compiled Applications - LassoApp Builder allows developers to build compiled, encrypted LassoApps (Lasso Applications) for secure and easy distribution of Lasso solutions. LassoApps are automatically cached by Lasso Professional 5 for high-speed performance.
Instant Database Web Access - Lasso Database Browser provides instant Web browser access to all Lasso-accessible databases for quickly searching and editing database records without writing a line of code.
Enhanced Control of Events, Email and Errors - Sending email, scheduling events and tracking errors have been enhanced with queue control and error reporting accessible through the Monitor section of Lasso Administration.
Multiple Client Support - New WAP tags and extended XML support facilitate output to multiple Internet clients including cell phones and wireless WAP devices.
Extensibility - LDML tags and data types can be created page-by-page or specified in global libraries. Lasso C Application Programming Interface (LCAPI) facilitates the creation of custom data source connectors and tag modules in C/C++. Lasso Java API (LJAPI) has been rearchitected for enhanced operation. Lasso Connector Protocol (LCP) allows developers to build their own Lasso Web server connectors. Lasso Professional 5 can also serve as a TCP/IP client providing extensibility and interoperability with any other application via TCP/IP.
Open Source - Lasso Professional 5 embraces the open source movement providing the source code of numerous components for customization and extensibility by developers. These components include: Lasso Connector for Apache, Lasso Connector for IIS, Lasso Connector for MySQL, all Blue World provided LassoApps and solutions, and many of the new tags provided in LDML 5.
New Documentation - The Lasso documentation has been completely rewritten and redesigned following a task-oriented approach. The following references are provided: Lasso Professional 5 Setup Guide, Lasso 5 Language Guide, Lasso 5 Tutorial, LDML 5 Reference, and Extending Lasso Guide. Over 1800 pages of documentation are provided.
Enhanced Tag Language - Select tag names in LDML 5 have been regrouped and made more consistent while maintaining backward compatibility support for old tag names.
