Percussion Introduces Rhythmyx FastForward

Percussion Software introduced Rhythmyx FastForward, a series of enhancements to the company’s Rhythmyx 5 Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solution, designed to speed implementation, deliver more application functionality out-of-the-box and require less customization services to meet common customer needs. The Rhythmyx FastForward series is specifically designed to address the application needs of the mid-tier enterprise market. Not an add-on product, FastForward is a feature set of Rhythmyx, and ships with Rhythmyx modules at no additional cost. Rhythmyx FastForward for WCM (Web Content Management) is the first of the series. It is currently in beta test and will be available next quarter. The second in the series, Rhythmyx FastForward for DM (Document Management) will be available later this year. Others in the FastForward series will be announced with future releases of Rhythmyx. Rather than segmenting the mid-tier market by the size of the enterprises only, Percussion defines the mid-tier ECM market according to the unique content management needs of these customers. www.percussion.com

DataDirect Announces DataDirect XQuery

DataDirect Technologies announced the development of DataDirect XQuery, an embeddable software product that enables Java developers to access both relational and XML data sources using a single query. Built to accommodate XQuery, the language for querying and creating XML documents, DataDirect XQuery will join DataDirect Technologies’ offering of data connectivity components. Primarily queried from relational databases, business-critical data is increasingly required to be exchanged and processed as either XML data, or a combination of XML data and relational data. Recognizing this, the W3C has developed XQuery as a uniform language for data exchange. In the same way that SQL provides a query language for relational databases, XQuery will provide a common language for accessing both XML and relational data stores. DataDirect XQuery is scheduled to be available in the first half of 2005. A strategic beta program is scheduled to be available this fall. www.datadirect.com

Blast Radius Introduces XMetaL 4.5

Blast Radius introduced XMetaL 4.5 to simplify the creation of reusable business content. The new “Smart Customization Generator” automatically generates style sheets and behavior customizations from a DTD or schema. These are instantly usable in XMetaL Author and XMAX (XMetaL for ActiveX). When a customization file is updated and saved in XMetaL Developer, XMetaL Author and XMAX (XMetaL for ActiveX) now automatically update themselves to use the new version of the file. Developers can now create application-level customizations that apply to all DTDs and schemas. This simplifies the development of customizations, such as CMS integrations, that are independent of any particular document type. Authors now have the flexibility to move or copy content, including multiple cells, within and among tables using a click, drag-and-drop method. CALS, HTML and XHTML table models are supported. The CSS editor has been streamlined and simplified. Completely revamped project wizards in XMetaL Developer are simpler to use and have an improved workflow. www.xmetal.com, www.blastradius.com
