Raining Data Corporation announced availability of the developer release of its TigerLogic XML Data Management Server (XDMS) V1.0 on Windows 2000 and Windows XP. TigerLogic XDMS is information infrastructure software that provides scalability, XA-compliant transactional integrity and fine-grain search capabilities, as well as the dynamic extensibility, n-tier hierarchies and ease of use and deployment. Developers use J2EE Connector Architecture (JCA), and XML Schema, XSLT, SOAP and XPath to store and retrieve information and “eliminate the need for XML to relational data mapping”. TigerLogic XDMS bridges the gap between structured and unstructured data and provides a significant gain in performance of XML data access. TigerLogic XDMS complements Enterprise Application and Information Integration (EAI and EII), RDBMS and application server software to provide a high-performance XML-querieable and extensible mid-tier platform for storage of business information and application meta-data. Developers can tap into business intelligence across structured operational data stores (ODS) residing in RDBMS as well as unstructured flat-file text documents, images, email and spreadsheets housed in shared file systems or content repositories. The developer release of Raining Data’s TigerLogic XDMS is available for Windows 2000 and XP. Product license fee pricing starts at $25,000 per server. Availability on Solaris, Linux and other platforms is scheduled for 2003. www.rainingdata.com
