Oracle Ships New XML Components

Oracle Corp. Tuesday released new XML components for Java, C, C++ and PL/SQL. These new components access legacy information and transport it between business applications using XML.

Two of the new components announced Tuesday, Oracle XML Parser for C and Oracle XML Parser for C++, are in addition to Oracle's existing parsers for Java and PL/SQL. Like their predecessors, the C and C++ components support both Document Object Model and Simple API for XML interfaces and are deployed on the Oracle Application Server to access data in Oracle8 and Oracle8i databases.

Also released Tuesday were the new Oracle XML SQL Utilities and XSQL Servlet, which facilitate the reading and writing of XML information to and from Oracle databases. In addition, Oracle has released version 2.0 of the Oracle XML Parser for Java, which includes an eXtensible Stylesheet Language Transformation processor and a new high-performance architecture.

Version 2.0 of the Oracle XML Parser for Java gives developers the ability to transform one XML document into another, and to convert XML to other formats, such as HTML, or to extract data and save it into the Oracle8i database. All these components can be deployed inside Oracle8i or hosted on the Oracle Application Server.

XML components are available for download from Oracle Technology Network.
