South Wind Design, Inc. announced the release of xmlFX Developer Toolkit for C++(TM) v1.0 (xmlFX DTK) to expedite the development of business-to-business XML applications. Key benefits include Internet-readiness and an intuitive yet powerful XML query language (SXQL) for accessing and manipulating transactional XML documents. Because it leverages existing skill sets, there is little or no learning curve. The xmlFX DTK is targeted at the manipulation of transactional documents as opposed to display documents in a production environment that processes hundreds of thousands of XML transactions every day. Built-in Internet support empowers the user to read and write XML documents over the Web, using HTTP and FTP protocols. The xmlFX DTK is available now, complete with on-line documentation and Web-enabled technical support. The initial release targets Microsoft Visual C++ 6. The xmlFX DTK sells for $495 USD, and source code is available for an additional $795 USD. For a limited time, both packages are bundled at $995 USD, see . An evaluation edition will be available for free download soon. A 30-day satisfaction guarantee is in effect for the object code version. The xmlFX DTK is royalty-free.
