Document Sciences Corporation announced the release of xPression, a content processing services architecture. xPression extends the capabilities of enterprise Content Management, CRM, Portal and Business Application systems through a J2EE/XML component-based architecture. xPression uses XML to connect an organization’s existing workflow components. xPression works with Microsoft Word to design documents based on business rules. xPression can communicate with any solution, customize content at a high level of granularity, generate output through multiple channels and handle both transactional and high-volume batch processes. It runs on an IBM WebSphere, and is compatible with Windows 2000, Solaris, AIX, and HP/UX platforms. Support for BEA WebLogic, and z/OS will be added later this year. XPression is Unicode compatible. It integrates with Oracle, DB2, and SQL Server. Xpression’s Upgrade Utility allows companies currently using Document Sciences’ Autograph DLS product to migrate their applications to the xPression environment if application server operability is desired. Supported output formats include: PDF, HTML, Postscript, AFP, Metacode, and PCL.
