IXIASOFT’S NATIVE XML DATABASE OFFERS INTEGRATED ENVIRONMENT WITH ALTOVA’S XML SPY MONTREAL, QUEBEC and Beverly, MA (February 11, 2002) – IXIASOFT, the leader in native XML database technology, and Altova Inc, the leader in XML development tools, announce the availability of the XML Spy integration kit. The free package, downloadable from IXIASOFT’s website, enables the widespread XML Spy user community to leverage TEXTML Server’s XML database technology from within their development environment. The integration kit delivers a simple installation process on either the evaluation or the full editions of TEXTML Server and XML Spy 4 Suite. Users can expect to perform such operations as “save to”, “open from”, “save as” and “add to” TEXTML Server. Users can choose to “lock” retrieved documents for editing purposes and also choose to have new or edited content “indexed”, or merely stored as work in progress awaiting further editing, or content approval. Searching on file name is also possible and in an upcoming version of the integration kit, users can expect a comprehensive search interface to query, retrieve and edit content. “The integration creates an instant workflow scenario for any web publishing solution” declared Philippe Vauclair, Vice President of Business Development at IXIASOFT, “the potential for fast and easy implementation really becomes apparent when you couple the technology with Altova’s browser enabled XML editor.” The integration kit is delivered as part of a greater agreement between both companies that also oversees cooperative technology and marketing efforts. "We are excited to be part of such a powerful database connectivity integration with TEXTML Server through XML Spy 4 IDE’s 3rd party plug-in architecture and XML Spy 4 Document Editor browser plug-in", declared Alexander Falk, CEO of Altova. "Such an easy-to-use integration kit will enable the XML development community to rapidly develop document frameworks [web-based XML content applications which employ standard technologies] that result in considerable cost-savings to a company. We highly recommend the TEXTML Server Integration kit to our user-community of over 500,000 registered users."
