Infoteria Corporation Updates iXSLT

Infoteria Corporation Debuts iXSLT Version 2.0c

Powerful iXSLT 2.0c Tool Transforms the XML Market

BOSTON, and TOKYO. March 12, 2001.

Infoteria, the XML software company, today announced Version 2.0c of its iXSLT XML transformation tool. Version 2.0c includes new features and extension elements, making it easier than ever for companies to maximize critical business documents using eXtensible Markup Language (XML).

XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformation) processors are generally used to convert XML to HTML, since many applications do not fully support XML and XSL files. Infoteria's new iXSLT will enable organizations to remain competitive by helping them to leverage their data flexibly and quickly, no matter the source. Additionally, Infoteria's iXSLT can transfer a single source of XML data into multiple formats, facilitating the transformation of XML documents into the appropriate layouts for PCs, PDAs and other wireless devices.

"iXSLT 2.0c provides a standards-based technology with the capabilities to convert important data into a useful and secure format that can be read by multiple applications," said Alexander Falk, President and CEO of Altova Inc. "We are currently integrating iXSLT 2.0c with XML Spy 3.5 to enable customers to initiate XSLT transformations directly within their XML editing environment. This is a significant benefit for our joint customers."

Infoteria's iXSLT 2.0c supports Windows NT (Service Pack 4), Windows 2000, and Sun Solaris. Additionally, the file syntax for iXSLT 2.0c is compliant with the XSLT standards set by the W3C in November 1999. New performance testing features have been added, so users can test the time it takes to perform a single XSLT transformation or multiple transformations defined by a "repeat number." Additionally, iXSLT 2.0c can now load external entities from both XML and XSLT documents using the newly implemented, "-g" and "-G" switches, respectively.

"Businesses today must leverage important technologies such as XML if they intend to maintain a competitive edge in today's Web economy," said Tim Browne, CEO of Infoteria. "iXSLT 2.0c gives the enterprise a standards-based transformation tool that will enable them to communicate and share information effectively throughout different applications, including wireless devices."

In addition to the new features, iXSLT 2.0c includes new extension elements to make transforming data easier than ever before. The new extension elements include:

  • Executing an External Program: iXSLT 2.0c now supports executing external programs and inserting the results of these programs as the values for an XML element

  • Outputting Multiple Files: iXSLT 2.0c can output to multiple files

  • XPATH Extension Elements: XPATH functionality is extended, allowing the user to change the result tree fragment node sets and evaluate character strings as functions.
