Two Leaders Team Up in Response to Growing XQuery Market Momentum; Simplifies and Accelerates Development of XQuery Applications for Managing and Delivering Content
Washington, DC Nov 17, 2004 Mark Logic Corporation, developer of the first enterprise-class database management system designed specifically for content, and Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the leading provider of XML Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) and XQuery development tools, today announced that the two companies will work together to integrate Stylus Studio's XQuery development environment with Mark Logic's Content Interaction Server. This will simplify building content-centric applications in Mark Logic using XQuery, further accelerating time-to-market for content application deployment. The goal of the new partnership is to further enhance the XQuery developer environment for deploying mission-critical content-centric applications that help publishers and media companies manage and deliver content faster.
"Together Mark Logic and Stylus Studio are delivering on the promise of XQuery. XQuery development tools from Stylus Studio make it easier for our customers to write XQuery and take charge of content," said Dave Kellogg, president and CEO of Mark Logic.
"We are excited about the opportunity to support the Mark Logic developer community. Partnerships like this are essential to promote the adoption of XQuery as a mainstream technology. The Stylus Studio integration with Mark Logic's Content Interaction Server will allow developers to take advantage of Stylus Studio's unique mapping, debugging, and profiling features to quickly build and deploy XQuery-based applications," said Jerry King, General Manager of Stylus Studio.
