HQL 3.0 - New version released

Today, we released a new version of our HighQSoft Query Language. This new major version includes a consolidated distribution, ASAM ODS 6 compatibility, advanced Matlab ODS integration, and many bug fixes:

  • HQL Command-Line (ASAM ODS 5, ASAM ODS 6, ASAM ATFx-read)
  • HQL Library (ASAM ODS 5, ASAM ODS 6, ASAM ATFx-read)
  • HQL Web Service container (ASAM ODS 5, ASAM ODS 6)
  • HQL Web Service standalone (ASAM ODS 5, ASAM ODS 6)
  • Matlab ODS Toolbox (ASAM ODS 5)
  • Matlab ODS Extension (ASAM ODS 5, ASAM ODS 6, ATFx-read)

HQL is a versatile and easy-to-learn query language to access measurement data in ASAM ODS solutions. The HQL library assists data analysts and engineers in their daily work to evaluate data and helps developers to integrate new tools and processes into the enterprise test data management solution.


The HQL Web Service can be used together with the HQL Gateway to provide a global entry node for web applications, users, and analysts.

HighQSoft GmbH is part of the federal project Gaia-X:4 AI and taking responsibility for data room design, data services, standardization, and integration of AI algorithms in the use-case "Autonomous driving". The project will run for 3 years. HighQSoft targets to provide its products and services as part of the Gaia-X ecosystem.


What is Gaia-X?

Gaia-X represents the next generation of data infrastructure: an open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem, where data and services can be made available, collated, and shared in an environment of trust.


How does Gaia-X work?

The architecture of Gaia-X is based on the principle of decentralization. Gaia-X is the result of a multitude of individual platforms that all follow a common standard – the Gaia-X standard. Together, we are developing a data infrastructure based on the values of openness, transparency, and trust. So, what emerges is not a cloud, but a networked system that links many cloud service providers together.


A Federated and Secure Data Infrastructure

Innovation through digital sovereignty – that’s the goal of Gaia-X. We achieve this by establishing an ecosystem in which data is made available, collated, and shared in a trustworthy environment. The users always retain sovereignty over their data. So, what emerges is not a cloud, but a federated system that links many cloud services providers and users together.


Who is behind Gaia-X?

Representatives from business, politics, and science from Europe and around the globe are working together, hand in hand, to create a federated and secure data infrastructure. Companies and citizens will collate and share data – in such a way that they keep control over them. They should decide what happens to their data, where it is stored, and always retain data sovereignty.

Today, phase 1 of the AReS Gateway "Scale and Balance" development started.


The AReS Gateway is an ASAM ODS 6 Server implementation based on the Plankton microservices platform, where each piece of ODS functionality is encapsulated into a micro-service and, therefore, globally accessible, polyglot available, and on-demand scalable.

As a result, any number of AReS ODS 6 Servers, either local or remote, can be registered as a NxService. Any service will be discovered by Plankton. Thus, Test Data Management systems based on the AReS ODS 6 Server systems can be scaled for additional performance or number of users. Load balancing and fail-safe features are provided in addition to increase the fault tolerance of the whole system

This work package is one of three phases of the AReS Gateway development:

  1. Scale and Balance
  2. Aggregate and Combine
  3. Monitor and Logging

We will keep you posted!
