AltovaXML Offered at No Cost
Altova announced AltovaXML, an XML-standards processor that includes XSLT 1.0, XSLT 2.0, XQuery, and XML validation engines. Developers can download AltovaXML from the Altova Web site at no cost and use it within their own custom applications royalty free.
XML-based applications often require an XSLT engine for performing transformations, an XQuery engine for executing queries, and/or an XML validating parser for well-formedness checking and validation. AltovaXML provides developers with an XSLT 1.0 engine, XSLT 2.0 engine, XQuery 1.0 engine, and XML validating parser, together with .NET, COM, and Java interfaces so it can be used from a variety of applications. Developers can also call its functionality from the command line. AltovaXML supports schema-awareness in XSLT 2.0, and all of its functions are performed in a standards-based manner in conformance with the latest World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) specifications.
AltovaXML is suitable for use in both client- and server-side application development. Some examples that may require AltovaXML include: XML-based single-source or multi-channel publishing applications that require content entered by users to be checked for validity according to a specific schema and transformed into HTML or other formats through XSLT processing; data integration applications that transform existing XML documents into a format consistent with a new schema via XSLT or XQuery processing; and Web services applications that search for and retrieve data from XML documents via XQuery processing, then present the results in valid XHTML Web pages by transforming them using schema-aware XSLT 2.0 processing.
AltovaXML is offered under a free license and is available for download at http://www.altova.com/altovaxml.html.
