Pro Text Unveiles LAVA PT for Oracle 9iFS

Pro Text unveiled LAVA PT which extends Oracle 9iFS’s feature-rich abilities to manage documents beyond the current language borders. Integrated in the standard iFS web user interface, LAVA PT allows to create the needed language variants for any source document. LAVA PT offers support for every document format; even translating XML document fragments using Oracle iFS’s integration with ArborText’s Epic editor becomes uncomplicated and trouble-free. Language variants are sent then to a translator, a translation memory and/or machine translation via e-mail (or another standard internet protocol). Once translated and returned, the translated documents are checked in and stored into the Oracle iFS system. When the base or source language document is revised or updated, LAVA PT identifies the language variants that should be (re)translated and automatically initiates a new translation cycle for these. The web interface shows the status of each document variant within this translation process. LAVA PT is available now with prices starting from $20.000. www.protext.be, www.icmsgrp.com

UDDI.org Delivers Version 3 and Turns UDDI Over to OASIS

The Universal Description, Discovery, and Integration (UDDI) project, whose specification provides one of the building blocks for Web services applications and services, and OASIS have announced that OASIS will serve as the steward for the UDDI project and activities and will continue development of the UDDI technical work. OASIS will manage the future development of the UDDI specification and related activities. Existing business registries will continue to be made available by registry operators. Under OASIS, the UDDI specification will continue to advance as a standard, and interested companies can continue to incorporate the specification into future business and software plans. Along with the transition, UDDI.org also announced today the release of the version 3 specification. The new specification will be the basis for future development under OASIS.

Thunderstone Announces JavaScript Search Capability

Thunderstone Software announced the ability to index JavaScript hyperlinks and JavaScript dynamic content. The new capability is bundled with Thunderstone’s Texis search software and is available immediately. Sites have grown increasingly dependent on JavaScript-enabled browsers. But since most search engines cannot “see” JavaScript links, search-engine users are missing valuable content — often without knowing it. Texis also provides a broad range of other data discovery and indexing techniques. That includes indexing ‘deep’ information such as database content and newswire feeds, or even results from other search engines, all of which may be continually changing. Thunderstone is offering a free trial of the JavaScript link crawler through Oct. 30. The feature is included with Thunderstone’s Webinator web-site indexing product. Anyone who administers a web site may download a full working copy via the link on Thunderstone’s home page, at www.thunderstone.com
