Stellent Enhances XML Support

Stellent, Inc. announced expanded XML conversion capabilities for Stellent Content Management. Using Stellent, business users contribute content in its native file format for conversion to XML, and an XSL style sheet is automatically applied based on metadata criteria. Once the new XML document is created, it is automatically validated and made available for integration with other applications or for Web presentation. Since the XSL style sheets are managed inside the Stellent Content Server, functions such as library services, workflow and security can be applied to them. Stellent also provides an XSL for automatic conversion to the DocBook format. In addition, Stellent’s new validation feature verifies the XML conversion with the Document Type Definition (DTD) specified in the user-defined XSL. If a conversion fails, Stellent Content Management creates a workflow that enables users to identify the cause of the conversion error. www.stellent.com
