Sun release XML pack for Java
At the end of December Sun released a 'Java XML Pack', an 'all-in-one' download for developers of Java technologies for XML. The pack includes API's (Application Programming Interfaces) for web services technology such as SOAP, UDDI, and ebXML Registry, as well as the XML construction and transformation technologies SAX, DOM and XSLT.
The pack should be useful for developers implementing XML-based specifications such as IMS using the Java language.
"By providing a universal foundation for building networked services, Java technology has changed the way software is used. The Java platform, in conjunction with XML and other Web services standards, forms the most robust architecture for building platform-independent Web services," said Rich Green, vice president and general manager, Java and XML Software, Sun Microsystems. "Java technology has always been about building and providing networked services that allow enterprises to leverage the value of their information technology assets and the Net."
The pack can de downloaded from the Sun website
