XAware has released XAware 5.4, a new version of the open source data integration tool. XAware is designed to simplify
access to and from external data sources within a SOA. Updates included in version 5.4 include a service editor for reading and writing binary, text, and XML and improved SQL and MySQL functionality. XAware 5.4 also includes improved JSON and SOAP support. The SOAP wizard now allows the editing, adding, and deleting of SOAP headers. The servlet and command line processor can now generate JSON-formatted data. XAware 6.0 is now in stable release. XAware, headquartered in Colorado Springs, was acquired by Sparxent this summer.
