Looks to me as though these guys are very much into RT's space NQL supports an impressive range of communications protocols, built-in and ready to use. The protocols available include HTTP and HTTPS for web access; FTP for moving files; MAPI, POP3, and SMTP for sending and reading e-mail; ODBC, JDBC, OLEDB, and ADO for database access; NNTP for reading newsgroups; LDAP for accessing directory servers; SNMP for network monitoring; and TELNET for interacting with legacy systems. Having oodles of protocols built-in to the language is only half the story. Communications in NQL is accomplished with a small set of statement keywords designed to logically fit together. Differences in protocols are hidden. For example, the method of reading MAPI e-mail and the method of reading POP3 e-mail is the same. -- Graham Chiu
