Paradox

What is Paradox?

Paradox is an example of a relational database management system developed by Corel Corporation. It was previously produced by Ansa Software for DOS platform in 1985, and later on by Borland, who published the Windows version of Paradox in 1992.

The Paradox for DOS was written by Robert Shostak and Richard Schwartz. It provides a visual query by example implementation supported by an AI engine and contains an innovated programming language and Lotus-like text windows and menus. The Paradox for DOS has effectively used both conventional and extended memory, caching data tables, and indexing causing Paradox to rapidly perform task. Paradox for Windows, on the other hand, was written by different set of programmers and is uniquely different application from Paradox for DOS. Although Paradox for Windows possessed the key features of the Paradox for DOS, Paradox for Windows got a major break in compatibility from PAL to Object PAL and in the transfer to a GUI design symbols for forms and reports.

In the midst of 1990s, Corel Corporation obtained the right to enhance and market Paradox. The first version of Paradox under the Corel Corporation was first released in 1997.
