Arbortext, Inc. and Extensibility, Inc. have announced a technology and marketing alliance. XML Authority, Extensibility’s solution for the creation and management of XML DTDs and schemas, will be integrated within Arbortext’s Epic e-content management solution. With Extensibility’s technology embedded within Epic Architect, end users benefit from an intuitive and user-friendly graphical tool to design and build DTDs. The integration of XML Authority into Epic Architect’s user interface enables customers to use free-form editing in Epic Editor or Epic Editor LE (Light Edition) to perform rapid prototyping. This rapid prototype feature helps reduce development time by up to 80% over traditional methods. The Arbortext and Extensibility alliance also enables users to convert SGML DTDs to XML DTDs, or any other commonly used XML schema dialect, through Arbortext’s Epic e-content software.
