Microsoft Posts XML Parser for Applications Integration

Microsoft Corp. today announced the release of the Microsoft XML Parser for incorporation by third-party developers into their applications.

The Microsoft XML Parser, which is freely redistributable and compliant with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 specification, allows developers to easily support XML in any or all of the presentation, business logic or storage elements of an application. Leading ISVs, including Allaire Corp., Novell Inc. and Object Design Inc., today announced their intent to use the Microsoft XML Parser to build XML support into next-generation products. The parser is available for download at Microsoft's developer Web site MSDN at no charge.

"XML is a key piece of the puzzle for building multi-tier, Web-enabled applications because it helps solve the applications integration problem," says Tod Nielsen, vice president of marketing for the developer division at Microsoft. "Microsoft is the first to deliver a native XML solution for developers that reaches from the browser back to the database behind the Web server. XML is integral to every piece of the platform for building Windows DNA applications." -- Thomas Sullivan
