DataChannel Unveils XML-based Intranet Tools

DataChannel this week released
betas of two new XML-based intranet tools to coincide with the
recommendation of the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 specification by
the World Wide Web Consortium.

The DataChannel XML Parser 1.0 beta, part of the DataChannel XML Developer
Toolkit to be released later this quarter, is a Java-based XML parser that
facilitates server-side XML parsing and integration. Developers will be
able to use the XML parser to make their applications XML-aware by allowing
them to import XML data into their data structures.

The DataChannel XML Developer Toolkit will also include:

  • Pax Syntactica–a lightweight XML parser
  • DataChannel XML Viewer–an applet that utilizes the PAX Syntactica parser
    to walk through and view XML tree data
  • XML Server–a tool with support for a database schema for managing and
    distributing meta data
  • CDF Viewer demo–a preview of the upcoming DataChannel CDF Viewer client

Additionally, DataChannel announced the release of its ChannelManager 2.0
beta. The product provides enterprise developers with a tool that
integrates legacy databases, document management systems, news feeds, PC
applications, URLs, and e-mail into a functional intranet using an open API
and multiple client support.
