Together with the Stuttgart Media University (HdM), the XML expert data2type GmbH has further developed antillesXML and offers the new version 2.0 as a free download on the company‘s website.
“antillesXML is a perfectly equipped toolbox for dealing with XML documents. Thanks to the new graphical user interface which is easy and intuitively to handle, the numerous features are suitable for developers and users alike“, explains Manuel Montero, managing director of data2type GmbH.
Various functions on all aspects of checking, transformation and output of XML documents are available: for example XSL-FO transformations can be performed folder wise by different formatters. Another feature is the validation (also folder wise) of XML documents against DTD, XML Schema and Schematron. Furthermore, antillesXML provides the possibility to arrange XProc pipelines according to the specific needs of the user and to define Hotfolders for XML transformations.
In addition, antillesXML enables a wide range of special transformations, for example CSV2XML, or the conversion of Word documents to XML. Manuel Montero says: “We already have a whole array of additional functions in the pipeline which shall be realized in further updates.”
The company data2type GmbH (data2type.de), based in Ludwigshafen, Germany, was founded by Manuel Montero in 2005. As a specialist for all problems regarding XML, the company develops cross-sector XML solutions tailored to the individual needs of its customers.
