Sleepycat Software and Stylus Studio Provide XQuery Tools for XML Data Access

Lincoln, MA and Bedford, MAOct  25, 2004 — Sleepycat Software (http://www.sleepycat.com), makers of Berkeley DB XML, the leading open source, native XML database today announced that it has partnered with Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry leading provider of advanced XQuery tools for data integration, to provide integrated data access tools and XQuery processing facilities for Berkeley DB XML directly within Stylus Studio 6 XML Professional Edition. The new tools simplify the development of advanced XQuery data integration solutions and are available immediately for free 30-day trial download from the Stylus Studio website.

"The Berkeley DB XML developer community can now leverage Stylus Studio's industry leading XQuery and XML development tools to build applications that require fast and cost-effective storage and retrieval of native XML data and semi-structured data. The Stylus Studio integration with Berkeley DB XML allows application developers to easily visualize, query and optimize their databases. This is a real productivity gain for database developers and integrators," said George Feinberg, Sleepycat's Architect for Berkeley DB XML.

"Stylus Studio 6 XML Professional Edition's integrated support for Berkeley DB XML as a data source provides XML developers with a highly extensible solution for building, querying, testing, and deploying XML data services that are easily embedded in custom software application code. Using Berkeley DB XML as an XML data repository provides greater speed, configurability, and ease of use than is possible with other XML database products. The ability to access and query a Berkeley DB XML container — or even to create new containers — directly from Stylus Studio opens up some very interesting possibilities for XML application development," said Carlo Innocenti, Stylus Studio's Senior Program Manager.

The World's Leading XQuery and XML Development Tools

New support for accessing and querying any Berkeley DB XML instance via XQuery directly from the Stylus Studio 6 XML Professional Edition desktop also means that XML developers can now use live Berkeley DB XML data sources throughout Stylus Studio — as a live data input source in Stylus Studio's XML Mapper, for example. The new XQuery and data access features for Berkeley DB XML builds on Stylus Studio's industry leading XQuery development tools — which includes an XQuery Editor, Debugger, Mapper, and performance Profiler — further advancing Stylus Studio's position as the true industry innovator for data integration tools.
