~ 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.
