Software AG unveils new XML server
Software AG Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of European software maker Software AG, has announced the availability of its Tamino XML Server Version 3.1. The newest release of Tamino includes improved functionality, support and development that includes XML-based access to external database systems, migration tools, schema editors, a WebDAV server and interfaces to Java-based applications.
Tamino XML Server stores and processes XML data -- the format for data exchange using Web services -- without having to convert the data. This means that Tamino is faster, more flexible and more efficient than other systems that have to continually deconstruct and reconstruct XML before they can process, output or store it. Tamino users benefit from shorter response times and the fact that XML is an accepted standardized data format for the Internet.
