New Product Integration Facilitates Bi-Directional Mapping and Persistence of XML Data Stored in Relational Databases

SAN JOSE, CA and BEVERLY, MA -- (INTERNET WIRE) -- 01/13/2003 -- HiT Software Inc. and Altova today announced a new product integration between Altova's XMLSPY 5, the industry standard XML Development Environment, and HiT Software's winAllora Xpress, a powerful bi-directional data mapping utility that facilitates conversion of XML and relational data. When used together, the two products allow software application developers to utilize the advanced relational database-to-XML mapping utilities of HiT Software's winAllora Xpress, directly from within the XMLSPY 5 development environment. The winAllora plug-in for XMLSPY 5 is available immediately for download.

XML is today the standard format for expressing and exchanging business data, yet the vast majority of corporate data still resides in relational databases. Today's enterprise applications require support for both XML and relational database technologies, leveraging the open, integration-friendly nature of XML in conjunction with the performance and efficiency of the relational database storage model.

"The winAllora Xpress plug-in for XMLSPY 5 provides a unified, database-independent means for integrating XML data with relational databases," said Alexander Falk, President & CEO of Altova Inc. "This XML-centric view of relational data greatly simplifies application messaging and integration."
