MicroScript, the healthcare business unit of New Era of Networks, Inc. announced support for XML as a key component of MicroScript’s @ppian Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) product line. MicroScript’s @ppian technology’s use of XML provides a way to integrate disparate healthcare applications into Internet/Intranet architectures and e-Business frameworks such as Microsoft’s BizTalk initiative. Configuration information, as well as data content and structure information can be transported and shared among various implementations by using XML. MicroScript’s @ppian implements XML as the storage structure for metadata. Messages processed through the @ppian engine can be serialized as XML documents. The @ppian DataMapper translates messages in a single pass to and from XML, in addition to transforming messages in other formats. Additionally, @ppian’s DataMapper uses XSL for data access syntax. www.neonsoft.com
