Hynet Technologies announced the release of Hynet Directive 2.1. Hynet Directive is an XML-based electronic publishing product currently being used by financial institutions and high-tech manufacturers to convert documents and easily publish up-to-date information to the Internet and CD-ROM. Directive 2.1 improves ease of use with: the ability to access to the Directive conversion engine via C++, Visual Basic and Java; the ability to easily edit Directive document types; and the ability to edit and reuse existing and/or automatically generated document mapping rules. The Directive conversion engine, which can be purchased separately from the Directive publishing product, provides conversion of Microsoft Word and Adobe FrameMaker documents to HTML or XML. This tool is now enhanced for batch processing environments with command line access and APIs for C++, Visual Basic, and Java.www.hynet.com
