Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise Edition Simplifies XML Data Integration and Enhances Developer Productivity

Productive XML IDE adds updated support for XQuery 1.0, XSLT 2.0, and new tools for working with legacy data

Stylus Studio, provider of XML development tools and components for advanced data integration, today announced the immediate availability of Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise Edition, the latest revision of its award-winning XML IDE. The new release provides a significant upgrade in usability and XML standards conformance, and many new features further simplify XML data integration tasks faced by developers.

"We're advocating an innovative new approach to data integration – use standards-based XQuery and XSLT. These powerful technologies can be made to work regardless of whether your data source is XML, relational, EDI, or other legacy data. Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise lets you seamlessly work with them all using standards-based XSLT or XQuery technologies," said Jerry King, Stylus Studio's General Manager. "Using our comprehensive, award-winning toolbox of XML productivity tools for XQuery, XML Schema, XSLT 2.0, EDI, XML mapping, Web services, and others, it's easier than ever for developers to build and test XML data integration applications. And now, they can deploy these applications with Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise Edition's integrated Java™ code generator and our new high-performance Stylus Studio 2006 XML Deployment Adapters. Both are available for developers to try for an evaluation period for free today."

The following are some of the highlights of Stylus Studio 2006 XML Enterprise Edition:
•    X12 Data Conversion: Convert thousands of X12 message formats to XML and validate converted documents using a new X12 to XML Schema Generation Wizard. Access X12 data as bi-directional XML data sources using Stylus Studio 2006 XML Adapter Modules
•    XML Schema-Aware XSLT 2.0 Processing: Write more robust XSLT 2.0 stylesheets and eliminate common programming mistakes, simplifying XSLT debugging and improving XSLT performance
•    XML Schema-Aware XQuery 1.0 Processing: Simplify troubleshooting and XQuery debugging, and enhance XQuery code performance
•    Updated XQuery Support: Stylus Studio is the first and only XML IDE to provide updated support for the W3C XQuery 1.0 Candidate Recommendation of November 2005
•    Updated XSLT 2.0 Support: Stylus Studio is the first and only XML IDE to provide updated support for the W3C XSLT 2.0 Candidate Recommendation of November 2005
•    Tools Support for DataDirect XQuery: Develop XQuery expressions that access most relational databases including Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, and IBM DB2. Includes integrated support generating Java code that invokes DataDirect XQuery for deploying XQuery applications with the click of a button
•    Integrated support for Saxon SA 8.6: The Stylus Studio XQuery and XSLT tools have been updated to support the Saxon SA 8.6 processor, a leading Java-based XSLT and XQuery processing component
•    Folding XML Code support: The Stylus Studio XML, XQuery, XML Schema, XSLT, and Java Editors now support folding XML code to simplify XML editing
•    Hundreds of usability and performance enhancements

"XML is becoming the de facto standard for enterprise data integration and Stylus Studio is an indispensable part of the Masters-level XML Integration Technology & Applications course I am teaching", said Jay Crossler, an instructor at the Information Systems and Technology Department at Johns Hopkins University. "The open nature of Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Edition lets my students work with a variety of languages and XML processors - all in one development environment. This kind of productivity goes a long way towards finishing complex XML programming tasks in short time frames."

Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mac Devine, Distinguished Engineer at IBM, will discuss bringing these three elements together via Systems of Discover.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise) cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. NuoDB is involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO at NuoDB, Inc., will discuss the experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
Cloud and Big Data present unique dilemmas: embracing the benefits of these new technologies while maintaining the security of your organization’s assets.

He'll discuss the challenges that conventional approaches to both public and private cloud computing, and outline the tough decisions that must be made to accelerate the journey to the hybrid cloud. As part of the transition, an Infrastructure-as-a-Service model will enable enterprise IT to build services beyond their data center while owning what gets moved, when to move it, and for how long. IT can then move forward on what matters most to the organization that it supports – availability, agility and efficiency.
Every healthy ecosystem is diverse. This is especially true in cloud ecosystems, where portability and interoperability are more important than old enterprise models of proprietary ownership. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mark Baker, Server Product Manager at Canonical/Ubuntu, will discuss how single vendors used to take the lead in creating and delivering technology, but in a cloud economy, where users want tools of their preference, when and where they need them, it makes no sense.
