DataDirect Technologies Launches XML Converters for Accessing any Data Source as XML
New Product Line offers Productive, Scalable and Cost-Effective Approach to Building and Deploying Complex Data Integration Solutions
BEDFORD, MA -- 11/14/2005 -- Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML development tools and components for advanced XML data integration, today announced the immediate availability of DataDirect XML Converters, high-performance Java™ and .NET components that provide programmatic, bi-directional access to virtually any data source as XML. DataDirect XML Converters allow developers to seamlessly stream non-XML data as XML to industry-leading XML processing components including Apache's Xalan XSLT Processor, and the Saxon XQuery and XSLT Processors.
Because DataDirect XML Converters expose non-XML data as XML data sources, developers can now write industry-standard XQuery or XSLT stylesheets that read and write to non-XML data sources as if they were XML files on the local file system. Using Stylus Studio 2006 XML IDE, developers can generate the Java code required to run these data integration applications and deploy them to any Java environment with the click of a button. DataDirect XML Converters are a powerful and innovative approach to solving data integration challenges involving different data sources including flat files, relational databases, EDI (EDIFACT and X12), XML databases, Web services, and many other file systems and data repositories. Developers can radically simplify developing and deploying data integration applications in a way that leverages industry-standard XML technologies, widely-adopted and proven XML processing components, and Stylus Studio's industry-leading XSLT and XQuery tools.
"XML, XQuery, and XSLT are a natural fit for data integration, but development gets tricky if your data isn't already in an XML format. Previously, developers facing this challenge had limited options to choose from – they could write their own internal adapter libraries, try costly non-XML data conversion solutions, or risk rolling the dice with other XML tools offering proprietary code generation schemes based on non-standard XML processing technologies," said Jerry King, Stylus Studio's General Manager. "DataDirect XML Converters let developers easily extend the power of industry-standard XSLT and XQuery to access virtually any data source quickly and easily. By using the integrated XML mapping tools in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite to develop and debug XSLT and XQuery in combination with our Java code generation capabilities, developers can realize serious productivity gains when deploying XML applications. Together, DataDirect XML Converters and Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite offer the most productive, scalable, and cost-effective approach to building and deploying XML-based data integration solutions involving multiple, heterogeneous data sources."
