Abstract: Inmagic announce the release of version 6.0 of its flagship product, DB/TextWorks, a special combination of database and text retrieval software that enables you to build networked and standalone textbases to manage diverse types of information including text, images, and multimedia.


Woburn, MA - Inmagic, Inc., a global provider of content and information management software and services, announces the release of version 6.0 of its flagship product, DB/TextWorks, a special combination of database and text retrieval software that enables you to build networked and standalone textbases to manage diverse types of information including text, images, and multimedia.

DB/TextWorks 6.0 features the ability to use a thesaurus as a validation list, which allows users to share a substitution list across fields or textbases. This ensures consistency in data entry as well as searching.

"Having the ability to create and maintain a thesaurus, which also serves as a validation list across several databases, is a real plus." states Margaret Gross, Librarian and Information Officer for EMS Technologies. "Consistent use of descriptors makes searching so much easier. Precision is what you get when you combine retrieval by controlled vocabulary along with free text searching."

"The ability to share validation lists among textbases is one of our most frequently requested feature enhancements." states Phil Green, CEO of Inmagic. "We're happy to listen to the requests of our customers."

In conjunction with the release of DB/TextWorks 6.0, Inmagic will deliver updates of both DB/Text® PowerPack 6.0 and DB/Text® ODBC Driver 3.0. PowerPack 6.0 will support record level security, protecting the integrity of data as it is collected, populated, and maintained in the textbase of the Inmagic user. DB/Text ODBC 3.0 will add scrollable cursors, nested sub-selects, connection pooling, left outer joins, and a BETWEEN operator.

Other DB/TextWorks 6.0 highlights include:

  • The ability to receive search results in XML format
  • The ability to submit a canned query
  • A bar code generator application that accompanies DB/TextWorks 6.0

DB/Text WebPublisher can be added for a fully integrated database system that will give your organization the capability to store, search and obtain information (text, multimedia, and images) on the Web.
