FileNET & BEA Form Strategic Technology Alliance

FileNET Corporation announced it has formed a technology alliance with BEA Systems, Inc. to develop and market integrated content and process management solutions designed for use with BEA’s WebLogic Platform 7.0, which features a J2EE application server combined with development, portal and integration frameworks. FileNET’s Web Content Management capability currently integrates with BEA WebLogic Server, allowing Web applications developed on the BEA platform to access content stored in the FileNET Web Content Management system. Under the new agreement, FileNET will expand its relationship with BEA to integrate the entire FileNET ECM suite with the BEA WebLogic Platform. The combined solution will be designed to automate the delivery of enterprise content to applications built on BEA WebLogic Platform, and to provide a unified framework for creating, managing and approving content accessed via enterprise portals.

OASIS Members to Develop Web Services Standard for Translation

Members of the OASIS standards consortium have formed a technical committee to develop standards to automate the translation and localization process as a Web service. The effort brings together DataPower, IBM, the Localisation Research Centre, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and others in a collaboration that will use Web services as the backbone to a workflow linking the tasks that comprise a complex software localization project. The new OASIS Technical Committee will concentrate first on defining service types that are relevant to the software/content localization and translation industry. Their specification will drive the development of WSDL documents that will ultimately be published in a UDDI registry and potentially also in an ebXML registry. The OASIS Translation Web Services Technical Committee joins another localization effort at OASIS — one that works to develop an XML Localization Interchange File Format (XLIFF). The two groups plan to coordinate their efforts.

Raining Data Announces Developer Release of TigerLogic XML Data Management Server on Windows

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.
