XML Global GoXML Messaging 3.0 Supports ebXML Messaging Specification Version 2.0
XML Global Introduces Security and Reliability for e-Business Web Services
GoXML Messaging leverages ebXML technologies to provide advanced reliability and security features for Web services deployments
New York, NY, USA. January 15, 2003.
XML Global Technologies, Inc., an XML middleware company, announced the release of GoXML Messaging 3.0. GoXML Messaging is a secure and reliable SOAP-based messaging system that supports the industry standard ebXML Messaging Specification 2.0.
ebXML is a suite of e-business standards sponsored by OASIS and the UN/CEFACT. Gartner analyst Jess Thompson has stated that "ebXML Messaging is the crown jewel of the ebXML specification suite." GoXML Messaging 3.0 has been successfully certified in the current round of Drummond Group ebXML Messaging 2.0 interoperability tests sponsored by the Uniform Code Council, Inc. (UCC).
GoXML Messaging 3.0 addresses the issue of Web services security, which Pacific Data Works analyst Andrew Binstock says is "the biggest obstacle to exposing Web services to defined groups or the public". In his recent Software Development Times article Binstock adds, "[The issue of] Security, of course, appears even with internal applications, such as intranets." GoXML Messaging now empowers businesses to publish Web services that offer security guarantees for business documents such as invoices, health records and digital images.
"In addition to security, reliability is a critical component that most businesses are demanding of Web services," said Peter Shandro, CEO of XML Global. "We view this as an important step to fulfilling the needs of businesses. GoXML Messaging gives Web services the reliability and functionality that mission critical applications demand."
"Business Web services require advanced features such as digital signatures and non-repudiated receipts. ebXML Messaging provides these advanced security and reliability features for Web services" said Duane Nickull, VP of Strategic Relations of XML Global and ebXML liaison to the W3C Web Services Architecture Group, "and GoXML Messaging, with its easy-to-integrate API simplifies the process of adding a secure messaging layer to any application."
Unlike other messaging systems that typically require additional proprietary server software, GoXML Messaging is designed to operate as a lightweight web application or as a small-footprint embeddable software component. This enables existing applications to engage in secure and reliable document exchanges over intranets and the Internet.
Key features of GoXML Messaging 3.0 include:
- certified for ebXML Message Service 2.0 interoperability
- support for ebXML CPA 2.0 trading partner agreements
- persistent message storage to guarantee reliable messaging
- an easy-to-use Java API
With the release of GoXML Messaging 3.0 XML Global adds further depth to its suite of business integration components, which include GoXML Transform, a data transformation engine, and GoXML Registry, a metadata registry based on the ebXML specification.
GoXML Messaging 3.0 is available for evaluation from January 20, 2003.
