Stylus Studio 2007 XML Enterprise Suite Release 2 Now Available

Award Winning XML IDE Provides Powerful New XML tools to Further Simplify XML Data Integration

Bedford, MA - May 18, 2007 – Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML tools and components for advanced data integration, today announced the immediate availability of Stylus Studio® 2007 XML Enterprise Suite, Release 2 for free trial download or online purchase.

Continuing a 10-year tradition of innovation and excellence, the new release is packed with many exciting new features and enhancements geared towards enhancing XML developer productivity through innovation.

"Stylus Studio 2007 Release 2 provides many new integrated tools and enhancements including a Query plan for visualizing and optimizing XQuery, advanced XML report generation tools, support for gigabyte-size XML documents, updated support for the recently-released DataDirect XML Converters 3.0 and the DataDirect XQuery 3.0 products, and even Chinese localization", said Carlo Innocenti, XML Technologies Architect for DataDirect Technologies. "XML developers seeking productive tools to assist with the development and deployment of advanced data integration applications will like what they see in Stylus Studio 2007 Release 2."

The following are just some of the highlights of Stylus Studio 2007 XML Enterprise Suite, Release 2:

  • Introduces a new query plan utility: The new Plan tab in the XQuery Editor lets you visualize query execution plans and gain valuable insight into how DataDirect XQuery will execute your XQuery application. Query plan support is available for any XQuery that uses the DataDirect XQuery processor.
  • Supports Grouping Data Sources in XML Publisher: XML Publisher now lets you create even more advanced reports through support for grouping data from nodes in one or more data sources. Visually define relationships between different data sources, or between different data islands within the same source and then add those relationships to your XML reports using simple drag-and-drop functionality.
  • Supports Gigabyte Size XML Files: In previous versions of Stylus Studio, editing tended to be limited to documents of around several hundred megabytes. With the new enhancements, it can now implement new optimizations that permit the editing of XML documents into the multi-gigabyte range.
  • Support for DataDirect XML Converters 3.0: Release 2 provides powerful, integrated tools for visually developing your own custom XML conversions, and extends DataDirect XML Converters to work with virtually any kind of legacy file. DataDirect XML Converters are high-performance Java and .NET components that provide bi-directional, programmatic access to nearly any non-XML file.
  • Support for DataDirect XQuery 3.0: DataDirect XQuery is an implementation of XQuery that can query XML, relational data, SOAP messages, EDI, or a combination of data sources. And the latest version, DataDirect XQuery 3.0, is bundled with Stylus Studio 2007 XML Enterprise Suite, making the fastest, most reliable, and most scalable XQuery support for all major relational databases available.
