Altova Launches Beta of New Product Line of XML Tools
Beverly, MA, USA. June 18, 2001.
Targeting Developers and non-technical Users, XML Spy 4.0 is broadening its reach with Improved Developer Tools and a User-Friendly Editing Environment.
Altova (www.altova.com) today announced the beta version of XML Spy 4.0, a new product line built on the success of prior XML Spy products. Version 4.0 will be the first complete solution for XML Schema driven document and content editing for both developers and users in virtually all environments.
The XML Spy 4.0 Integrated Development Environment (IDE) adds expanded database access functionality, enhanced user interface customization, as well as support for the final XML Schema Recommendation and continues to strengthen XML Spy's position as the No.1 choice of the world's leading Fortune 500 and Global 1,000 companies for their e-Commerce and B2B solution development.
In addition, the new 4.0 product line will include the XSLT Generator, a tool for creating Stylesheets in a graphical environment, and the Document Framework, which supports free-flow editing of XML document content, form-based data input, and real-time validation - all available in a user-friendly interface that is well-suited for non-technical users.
XML Spy 4.0 Beta was recently reviewed at the Chicago XMLOne Conference & Expo and the XML Europe 2001 Show, where developers and users alike got a first glimpse of the new version of XML Spy and the positive feedback was overwhelming. The new XML Spy 4.0 product line will greatly accelerate the widespread adoption of XML Schema in companies and the industry overall.
