Looks to me as though these guys are very much into RT's
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.
