OnDisplay, Inc. announced the general availability of XML Connect. XML Connect is a free, business-to-business, XML-based server for organizations that need to establish secure, guaranteed exchange of critical business transactions with trading partners. This new product enables the exchange of XML business documents — such as purchase orders, invoices, and order confirmations — seamlessly and securely with any other XML Connect user, as well as with users of OnDisplay’s CenterStage eBizXchange product. The new product can be downloaded from the XML Connect Web site and supports all of the XML schemas on the market and allows B2B e-commerce participants to set up secure connections with trading partners without the need to purchase and install proprietary software on both ends of the trading partner connection. In conjunction with the availability of this product, OnDisplay is also launching XMLConnect.net, a B2B community portal found at www.xmlconnect.net. This portal was specifically created to become a destination site for the convergence of the B2B and XML Connect community. The community portal will offer a place to interact with trading partners, exchange ideas and access resources for learning more about the power of Internet ubiquity and the mass adoption of XML and XML Connect. OnDisplay offers free online support for XML Connect; for an additional charge a company can upgrade to a traditional phone support model. www.ondisplay.com
