XMLSolutions Releases XMLZip - Leading XML File Compression Tool

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 22, 1999--XMLSolutions Corporation, a leader in E2E(SM) (end-to-end) business e-commerce solutions, today announced the availability of XMLZip(TM) for the Windows NT and Linux operating systems.

XMLZip provides the industry's first compression tool for use with XML documents.

XMLSolutions developed XMLZip to provide an efficient solution for handling large XML files. These large XML files use a disproportionate amount of transmission time over the Internet as well as large amounts of storage on both the server and client equipment. XMLZip reduces the size of XML files without adding undo-processing time to access portions of the files.

XMLZip's compression technique allows users to determine the level at which they want to compress XML files, thus allowing continued utilization of the DOM API without performance degradation. As an example of the compression delivered by XMLZip, a 1.2 Mb XML document shrinks to a file of just 136-kb!

Pricing

XMLZip is currently offered at no cost to the public. Please read the licensing agreement that accompanies XMLZip for any restrictions.

Availability

XMLZip supports the Windows NT and Linux platforms and will support UNIX in the near future. To download the latest release, please visit http://www.xmlzip.com.
