PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- XML '99 -- XMLSolutions announced the Beta program opening for release 1.0 of Schema Central(TM). This is the industry's first tool to provide centralized management of XML schemas and DTDs.

With large companies moving from the experimentation to implementation stages for XML-based applications, they are seeing a confusing proliferation of schemas from a variety of sources: industry standards groups, technology vendors, trading partners, and in-house projects.

Schema Central is a web-based management facility that simplifies XML implementation by providing the following benefits:

    Schema Central allows an organization to set up a centralized repository of schemas, providing tools to import, generate, browse, edit, categorize, validate and manage the development of XML schemas and DTDs.

    ``Most large organizations have thousands of trading partners using a wide variety of schemas covering different functional areas. Without proper schema management, XML data exchange with these partners becomes a maintenance nightmare,'' says Priscilla Walmsley, VP of Development for XMLSolutions.

    Through this announcement, XMLSolutions seeks companies interested in participating in the Beta testing cycle of Schema Central. Interested companies should contact the XMLSolutions sales team at sales@xmls.com or by phone at 703-506-1111 or toll-free at 877-965-9657.
