XyEnterprise announced a new Web Services Development Kit for its XML Professional Publisher (XPP) software line. This new Web Services interface makes available the XML publishing capabilities of XPP to Web interfaces, portals, and application integrations, providing rapid deployment of automated XML publishing solutions in environments as diverse as corporate IT services to consumer “publish on demand” applications. The new Web Services offering exposes the composition, transformation and rendering capabilities of the XPP software through a SOAP/XML interface. This API provides access for customers and developers, enabling them to build customized end-user interfaces in support of distributed XML publishing services. Web Services also supports the deployment of XPP as an embedded batch processing engine able to transform XML content to PDF, print, and Web output on demand. www.xyenterprise.com
