Web Services and XML are both exciting new developments in the world of electronic business. XML Global, with its
GoXML™ line of products, is providing industry-leading software components that will help drive this revolution.
Web Services provide a method for creating service-oriented, component-based applications that are built on open,
Internet-based standards. XML, in conjunction with the ebXML standard, lowers the entry barrier to
e-business and provides
standards allowing trading partners to discover one another, make their needs and capabilities known, agree on terms, and
initiate transactions in an automated way.
Combined in the form of an ebXML Registry, these complementary standards ensure interoperability between trading partners'
systems, and they are quickly forming the infrastructure that will make global electronic commerce a reality. Registries are
the focal point of e-business. They contain the business services, processes, messages, and vocabularies that make up the
transactions exchanged between trading partners. They provide the means to search for potential trading partners and their
capabilities. Registries also allow organizations to consolidate and standardize the elements of their operations, like business
processes, forms, and terminology. GoXML™ Registry centralizes
and organizes business documents, processes, and services, then shares that information to enable business process integration.
Its Web Services and ebXML interfaces let it plug into popular e-business infrastructures and provide superior XML interoperability.
GoXML™ Transform works in tandem with GoXML™ Registry,
allowing you to centralize and share your transformation rules, schemas, DTD's and EDI dictionaries. A component dictionary
enables automated mapping of related business data elements. The interoperability afforded by data mapping and transformation
forms a critical part of most XML Web Services solutions. GoXML™ Transform's powerful functionality is accessible via
Web Services and ebXML interfaces.
GoXML™ Messaging provides secure and reliable delivery
of ebXML messages. It serves as a robust transport, routing, and packaging infrastructure for both GoXML™ Registry and
GoXML™ DB is a native XML database that lets Web Services solutions realize
the inherent benefits of XML by storing XML content in its original format, understanding its complex hierarchical structures,
and supporting the latest XML technologies, like XQuery. GoXML™ DB provides a robust storage alternative for XML data and a
convenient transaction processing cache.
Solutions developed with GoXML™ components can overcome the tough data integration challenges, ensure XML interoperability,
and plug into the Web Services infrastructure. The XML Web Services revolution is happening now, and XML Global is leading the charge.
