TIBCO Software Announces Commercial Release of XML Validate

Palo Alto, CA, USA. May 30, 2001.

TIBCO Software Inc., today announced the commercial release of XML Validate, a member of the TIBCO Extensibility product family. XML Validate is an enterprise-grade solution for validating streaming XML documents or messages against an XML Schema or DTD. This Simple API for XML (SAX)-based implementation for run-time validation provides organizations with the core component in developing high bandwidth, XML-based processing.

This release of XML Validate is also the first commercially available validator to fully support the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) XML Schema Recommendation. The XML Schema Recommendation was released earlier this month by the W3C, the world-renowned standards body for developing interoperable Web technologies.

"With its issuance as a W3C Recommendation, XML Schema will provide the semantic foundation that will enable business relationships to be articulated, integrated, and automated via the Internet with unprecedented speed," said Lee Buck, vice president and chief scientist of XML technologies at TIBCO Software. "TIBCO Software continues to show its XML leadership with the release of XML Validate as the first commercially available solution to offer comprehensive validation support for this worldwide standard."

Key Features

High Bandwidth and Scalability. XML Validate is a core building block for creating an e-commerce processing engine for XML documents and messages. As organizations conduct e-commerce with a growing and global audience, the processing capabilities of XML Validate can scale to the demand. XML Validate has the potential of handling millions of transactions per day per server.

Run-Time XML Processing. XML Validate can easily be inserted into an existing XML parsing scenario, enabling validation to occur the instant it is received by the parser. Because SAX is an event-based API, XML Validate is the ideal solution in a streaming run-time environment, creating an enterprise-grade XML processing engine.

Full XML Schema Compliance. XML Validate is the first commercially available product to offer full validation support for the XML Schema Recommendation from the W3C. This best of class support will facilitate the creation of XML driven ecosystems based on open-standards. Additionally, XML Validate supports the validation of DTDs to allow connectivity with organizations not currently using XML Schema.

System/Product Requirements and Availability

XML Validate is an SDK and will run on Windows 2000, NT and UNIX platforms. XML Validate is available on a per CPU basis and is currently available for delivery. Please contact our sales department at or 919-969-6500 for pricing.
