Stylus Studio and Mark Logic Announce Integrated XQuery Development Support for the MarkLogic XML Content Server

Leading XQuery vendors partner to accelerate the development of new content applications

Bedford, MAJan  24, 2005 — Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading innovator of XML development and productivity tools, and Mark Logic (http://www.marklogic.com), the provider of the industry's leading XML content server, today announced the immediate availability of new, integrated XQuery development tools for the MarkLogic XML content server.

Stylus Studio® 6 XML Professional Edition, Release 2, the latest update of the award-winning XML Integrated Development Environment (XML IDE), now features integrated development support for MarkLogic. The new release includes intelligent editing support for MarkLogic’s advanced XQuery language extensions from within Stylus Studio’s XQuery editor, the ability to easily submit queries for evaluation within MarkLogic Server, and WebDAV integration enabling Stylus Studio users to browse and edit XML files and XQuery documents stored within the MarkLogic Server as easily as if they were stored on the local file system.

The partnership between the two companies provides developers with the most powerful, intuitive, and productive environment for developing new classes of standards-based content applications that leverage the full power and potential of XQuery.

"By integrating our best-of-breed XQuery-enabled products, developers now have a high productivity environment to rapidly build content applications. This unlocks value for customers by enabling them to reuse what would otherwise be fragmented and thus unusable information assets," said Carlo Innocenti, Stylus Studio's senior product architect.

"Stylus Studio offers the industry-leading XQuery development capabilities that our customers demand. The new features are a boon for our developer community and for anyone seeking to build massively scalable content-based applications using XQuery," said Ian Small, Vice President of Products for Mark Logic Corporation.
