Deploying XML Data Services with Stylus Studio®: Key Findings
The following are excerpts of key findings about XML data services and Stylus Studio made in the new ZapThink analyst report:
"Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) is an architectural design pattern and not an implementation strategy. When it comes to implementing SOA-based applications, our belief is that XML data services the notion of exposing distributed views of data, which internally aggregate, transform, and integrate any number of different heterogeneous data sources using industry-standard XML technologies like XQuery and XSL is the easiest and most flexible approach," said Jerry King, Vice President of DataDirect Technologies XML Products Group. "Stylus Studio's productive XML development tools, in combination with DataDirect XQuery™, our new Java-based XQuery processing component, is the ultimate solution for developing and deploying XML data service applications which simplify advanced data integration challenges." DataDirect XQuery is scheduled for commercial release in September 2005.
