Republica Releases X-Fetch Performer 2.1, Accelerating XML Application Development
Republica is proud to announce the release of its improved real-time XML processor X-Fetch Performer 2.1, making X-Fetch Performer one of the most advanced XML processing technologies currently available while further reducing the required implementation and maintenance effort to a minimum!
X-Fetch Performer is a leading edge, run-time configurable solution for parsing and validating data from XML sources and forwarding this data to software components that can remain completely independent of the XML standard.
X-Fetch Performer is especially focused at XML application developers, designed to overcome the high maintenance demands as well as the performance problems associated with currently wide-spread SAX and DOM parsers: the lack of speed of these solutions and the inability of these solutions to process large XML files or continuous XML streams - both in XML parsing and XML Transformations.
The data streaming capabilities of X-Fetch Performer provide local random access to XML data: critical information contained in an XML document can be directly applied without having to load the entire document. Furthermore, a low and constant memory usage is guaranteed, resulting in the ability to process huge XML files, even continuous XML streams in real-time. With XPath-based configuration and configurable streaming as well as allowing software logic to be independent of the XML standard via data binding, the maintenance and implementation effort is now reduced to a minimum. X-Fetch Performer allows solutions to be modular and ready to react to changes in their environment. This leads to drastic cost reductions for applications that need to leverage - filter, order and route - XML content in a time-critical manner. All this combined with compatibility with SAX and DOM solutions makes X-Fetch Performer an ideal tool for the enhanced reuse of existing and tested software components and offers clear benefits to support rapid, low-maintenance/fast-implementation XML application development.
Benchmarking X-Fetch Performer
A new benchmark research is available where X-Fetch Performer was tested against the leading solutions like Crimson, JDOM, Xerces and EXML, to name a few. A copy of this report can be collected from http://www.x-fetch.com/common/X-Fetch_Performer_Benchmark.pdf.
Results show X-Fetch Performer exceeding in low memory usage. Furthermore, the performance of processing is not compromised, even when taking into consideration that X-Fetch Performer comes with additional features like:
- Streaming XML
- Real-time configuration
- Dynamic data binding and
- Content-based routing and filtering
X-Fetch Performer offers better control over your application with less maintenance effort; this is why X-Fetch Performer can be considered a true asset for speeding up your XML application development. More information about X-Fetch Performer can be obtained from http://www.x-fetch.com/performer.
Evaluate X-Fetch Performer
A 30-day evaluation download package is available from http://www.x-fetch.com/download. The evaluation package contains the software as well as all the documentation, tutorial and examples to help you get started and comes with helpdesk support in order to guarantee a problem-free evaluation of the most advanced XML processor currently available!
X-Fetch Suite: Free For Non-Commercial Use
Republica now offers an unlimited version of X-Fetch Suite, which includes X-Fetch Performer, X-Fetch Wrapper, X-Fetch AgentServer and X-Fetch Unifier, free for evaluation and private, non-commercial use. For more details, contact email@example.com
With the release of X-Fetch Performer 2.1, Republica has changed its licensing. X-Fetch Performer no longer requires a run-time license for generated applications with X-Fetch Performer so long as they are deployed in the context of a customer's application.
In order to utilize X-Fetch Performer, a single developer license needs to be bought for each developer 'seat' who will be using X-Fetch Performer.
X-Fetch Performer developer license, single seat, 3 months support: 99 Euros X-Fetch Performer developer team license, 5 seats, 3 months support: 399 Euros X-Fetch Performer developer team license, 10 seats, 3 months support: 599 Euros
