Bracknell, UK (14th January, 2002) – Magic Software Enterprises (Nasdaq: MGIC), a leading provider of state-of-the-art application development and deployment technology, has announced the release of Magic eDeveloper™ v9.2. This latest release will enable developers to create and deploy Web Services ( as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with J2EE application servers, providing companies with the ability to extend the life span and increase the value of legacy applications, while helping to reduce the cost and complexity of integrating ERP, CRM and custom applications.

Web Services are business processes that can be accessed and executed over the Internet using standard technologies, enabling organisations to easily integrate applications using standard XML formats to almost any client device. Similarly, Web Services easily interconnects applications from multiple hardware platforms and operating systems.

Magic eDeveloper v9.2 supports the standards necessary to develop and deploy Web Services including Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Services Description Language (WSDL). Applications developed with Magic eDeveloper fully interact and integrate with advanced J2EE application servers, such as IBM WebSphere ( and now Magic eDeveloper v9.2 enables these applications to also be deployed as Web Services.

"Support for Web Services is a natural fit with the Magic philosophy of providing a progressive application development and migration pathway for developers," said Avikam Perry, vice president of research and development for Magic Software. " Enterprises of all sizes are discovering the promise of Web Services in connecting applications and business processes across disparate architectures. Magic eDeveloper v9.2 delivers the cutting-edge standards and technologies, making it even easier to build solutions of interconnected data and business processes.”

Magic eDeveloper enables developers to create applications in client-server, online or browser mode that are suited to migrating and integrating data within a multi-database environment. Magic provides an ideal environment to develop applications for Windows, Unix, Linux and iSeries operating systems in a way that delivers scalability, interoperability and integration to legacy systems. Web Services allows companies to collaborate and realise productivity gains by sharing application resources. Utilising Web Services and SOAP is another of the many avenues developers may choose to achieve secure interoperability using Magic enabling technology and applications.
