MINT Communication Systems Inc., a subsidiary of Oshap Technologies Ltd. and a provider of Enterprise Application Integration solutions to the financial services industry, announced support for XML. Financial institutions are adopting XML as a new standard because its flexible structure can simplify and speed the process of integrating and transmitting complex financial information between banks, securities firms, and clearing networks. The MINT/Rule Manager Module allows users to import and export XML metadata, and to integrate the data with other financial applications and industry standards like FIX and SWIFT, avoiding the time and cost for manually re-defining and transforming message formats.
