Lasso bridges the gap between popular web servers (Apache, IIS, or any FastCGI compliant server), data sources (MySQL, FileMaker, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSQL, and Openbase), and various other communication tools, utilities, and protocols such as email (POP and SMTP), directory services (LDAP and Active Directory), web services (SOAP, XMLRPC), and PDF generation. Lasso embraces open standards making it easy to work with a wide range of data sources, Web servers, and platforms. Web applications you develop on one platform can be deployed on another seamlessly. The partner LassoLab IDE includes tools like Lasso-specific syntax coloring, code completion, error checking, and debugging capabilities.
