Ektron Inc. introduced enhancements to its browser-based authoring tool, eWebEditPro+XML. eWebEditPro+XML Version 4.1 enhanced features include new data field types, mathematic functions and advanced validation options for designing “smart” forms for XML. Version 4.1’s new data field types, math functionality, and enhanced real-time validation capabilities allow organizations to create XML with higher levels of integrity and consistency for data and business processes. The XML editor can now, at the form creators choice, prevent data from being submitted and saved if validation requirements are not met. Users are notified (via a customizable dialog box) if any information they are trying to submit is not valid. The validation capabilities ensure the accuracy and consistency of data and documents. WebEditPro+XML’s “data design” mode offers a graphical, drag-and-drop method to create XML forms that can be deployed to internal business users on a Web site or intranet. www.ektron.com
