ICK (Internet Commerce Kit) Version 2.0 Release

Introduces new vGrid component for easy exchange of relational data over the web.

September 7th, 1999, Research Triangle Park, NC. devSoft Inc. today released Version 2.0 of its Internet Commerce Kit (ICK), a developer's toolkit for secure access and manipulation of Internet data. The toolkit includes native Internet and Intranet development components for popular development environments such as Visual Basic, Visual C++, Borland C++ Builder, Borland Delphi, and others.

The new release introduces a new component: vGrid ('virtual' Grid), used to dynamically exchange relational (tabular) data over the world wide web. The component may be used in both server and client applications to respectively serve and access data. It's most common use is on ASP (Active Server Pages) for publishing data which may be later retrieved by client applications written in Visual Basic, Visual C++, Delphi, or other popular development environments.

XML is used as the interchange format. This standards-based approach makes it possible to easily link together a wide variety of applications, from a wide variety of platforms, built with different development tools. The programmatic interface is very similar to common visual grid controls, with the notable difference being the fact that the 'virtual grid' in ICK may be exchanged with other instances of the control on the Internet.

The new release brings a number of significant improvements in the other components of ICK as well: HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, XMLp, and NetDial. The list includes: better programmatic access to interactive features and security, as well as support for the latest versions of popular development environments such as Delphi 5. Detailed information is included in the respective packages, available for a limited free trial on the company website.

The product is immediately available for purchase directly from devSoft or authorized resellers. For more information, please visit the company's website at http://www.dev-soft.com/.
