Headline: Whitebeam  0.9.30 Release

PostgreSQL has been one of the key underlying technologies for Whitebeam over the last 3 years. The latest release adds a generic PostreSQL API.


This release of Whitebeam exposes a comprehensive server-side JavaScript API to the Postgres database. Full details of the API can be found on the accompanying tutorial at:

Whitebeam is an XML based web application server. Sophisticated applications can be developed in a structured environment, built using server-side JavaScript (using Mozillas SpiderMonkey engine) and XML.

Whitebeam has used PostgreSQL very successfully behind the scenes since it\'s first public release over 3 years ago. Previously Whitebeam has hidden PostgreSQL behind a \'template\' interface, isolating web-authors from the complexities of a SQL database. Application developers can create complex applications with no knowledge of SQL. 

The latest release offers a full PostgreSQL interface making it now an ideal platform for developing complex applications. The interface supports both standard data storage and the PostgreSQL large object interface.

Whitebeam has been used to develop a number of complex online applications over the last 3 years (see The team have found the PostreSQL to be an excellent high performance back-end technology for these applications.
