HiT Announces Allora for Java 1.5 Thursday 8 March 2001 PDF Print ~ An advanced XML platform for databases ~ 8th March 2001 (DS0107) ~ Developer Solutions International, the application development specialist, announces a new version of Allora, HiT Software's XML platform for Data Exchange, which now provides data binding interfaces and message queue support in addition to its existing JAXP, DOM, and SAX interfaces. Allora is available in Java and native Windows versions, allowing maximum performance and portability for web applications. Allora 1.5 is available from Developer Solutions. RRP: Single processor £6520, dual processor £10599, quad processor £12999 + VAT. Visit http://www.developer-solutions.co.uk for full details. Adrian Handley, general manager, Developer Solutions, states; "XML is clearly a powerful tool for data exchange, but implementations have been difficult before because of the DOM/SAX learning curve for database application developers. Data binding gives database application developers a more familiar way to work with XML and its wide range of options make it ideal for developers who want to use XML with relational databases." Features: * Allora 1.5 advances its XML interfaces to include access to XML document data as individual records or record sets. Previously, standard interfaces between XML and databases have been limited to DOM or SAX, neither of which supports the well-understood model of iterative record/recordset access. * Allora for Java 1.5 allows developers to bind relational data or XML documents to Java classes and use methods to retrieve and update data in relational databases. Allora data binding also integrates with Java Message Service (JMS) providers to support asynchronous applications. * Allora data binding provides methods to marshal relational data to an XML document or to unmarshal the contents of an XML document to a relational database. This allows IT organisations to easily put XML data on their enterprise networks and thereby maximise internal exchange of data. * New message queue support allows developers to both direct RDB-sourced XML documents to message queues as well as extract XML documents from queues and then incorporate this data within relational databases.
