SD Times (July 15, 2005) - Stylus Studio has updated its XML integrated development environment, adding Java code generation and EDI conversion capabilities aimed at enterprise developers.
Stylus Studio 6 XML enterprise edition, release 3, announced late last month, includes XML, XSLT, XQuery and XML schema editors, as well as tools for debugging, mapping and modeling, among others, said the company’s XML product manager, Larry Kim. “Extensible Markup Language is a lot more verbose that conventional programming languages. So the need for productivity tools is greater.”
Earlier versions were aimed at individual developers, but release 3, which starts at US$995 per user, is Stylus Studio’s first offering for solving enterprise integration problems. The new version lets developers design XML mappings, for example, without having to write the Java code to make them work, Kim said. "Stylus Studio generates Java code and deploys it to an application server."
Also new is support for converting schemas based on the Electronic Document Interchange format to XML, as well as support for the working draft of the XQuery 1.0 specification, established by the W3C standards body in April. XQuery, which searches applications for XML code, and XSLT, which transforms the code to other formats, are critical to enterprise data integration, Kim said.
