Commerce One Inc. this week announced its Commerce One XML Development Kit 1.0, billed as “the world’s first Extensible Markup Language schema toolkit to enable the industry-wide creation of XML-based business documents and applications.”
XDK 1.0 is immediately available and can be downloaded for free from Commerce One’s MarketSite Web site.
By using information-rich, robust XML schema-based applications, XDK 1.0 will enable developers to provide application-to-application interoperability. Commerce One believes the XDK 1.0 will significantly reduce application development time and provide a powerful XML schema and DTD parser to validate XML documents. The XDK also includes an industry standard SAX API set (Simple API for XML), along with a rapid application development environment that features strong data typing capabilities.
Other Commerce One XML-based e-commerce solutions include:
- CBL 2.0 – Common Business Library, a set of XML schema components, documents and a framework that allows the creation of robust, reusable, XML applications for e-commerce
- XML schema language – this schema language provides the framework for e-commerce transaction validation
- Commerce One MarketSite – the e-commerce portal that enables businesses to create open, interoperable marketplaces that automate all their interactions with suppliers, from order to payment
