Matisse Software Announces a new Open Source PHP-Matisse Interface.

Mountain View, CA - April 28, 2010 Matisse Software today announces the immediate availability of the new open-source PHP-Matisse interface to the Matisse database, a well-suited interface to build and deploy cost effective web applications and services.

The Matisse PHP interface has been redesigned to fully take advantages of many of the PHP 6 features back-ported to PHP 5.3 and now provides developers with functionalities matching its popular interfaces for Java, .NET and C++. The tight integration between PHP and Matisse has proven to reduce application complexity with direct object-to-object mapping and to accelerate development through the fusion of native object support and SQL.

“With the new Matisse PHP interface, it has never been easier for developers to try out new business ideas for the web;” said Didier Cabannes, President and CEO of Matisse Software. “Thanks to a vibrant Matisse Developer Community, the driving force behind this new open-source initiative. Now, Matisse with PHP and Apache especially running on Linux offers a cost effective platform to deploy scalable web applications and services.”

Matisse 8.3 supports the popular platforms with Windows, Linux, Java and .NET frameworks, SQL and XML standards, and a broad range of language bindings including Java, C++, C, C#, VB.NET, Python, Perl, PHP and Eiffel. Most language bindings are published as open source software.

Pricing and Availability
Matisse 8.3 is immediately available. Pricing starts at $1,920 for the Standard Edition. Pricing for the Lite Edition starts at $125. A free developer version can be downloaded from
