  1. Stylus Studio 6 XML Enterprise Edition Now Integrates with TigerLogic
    XDMS XQuery and Native XML Database

    Bedford, MA, -- Stylus Studio ( ), the
    industry-leading provider of XML development tools for advanced XML
    data integration, and Raining Data Corporation (NASDAQ: RDTA), a
    leading provider of reliable data management solutions, today announced
    a new partnership to accelerate and make easier development of XML Data
    Services integrated in Service Oriented Architectures (SOA). The new
    Stylus Studio® 6 XML Enterprise Edition and TigerLogic® XML Database
    Management Server (XDMS) 2.1.1 are now fully integrated. Both products
    are now shipping to customers and available for free evaluation
    downloads from both companies' Web sites.

    "Stylus Studio users are software architects and developers that need
    to rapidly build, test, and deploy XML Data services based on XML
    technologies like XQuery, XSLT and XML Schema and databases," said
    Carlo Innocenti, Stylus Studio Sr. Program Manager. "The integration of
    Stylus Studio and TigerLogic XDMS makes it easy to work with XQuery
    functions, XML data stored in the TigerLogic XDMS native XML database
    and Web Services calls expressed within XQuery expressions directly
    from Stylus Studio's powerful visual integrated development tools."
    These tools include XQuery code completion, visual tools to run and
    preview XQuery scripts, and visual XML editors to work with XML, DTD,
    XML Schema, and Web Services (SOAP) structures.

    Initial reaction from the software developer community is positive.

    "XML, XQuery, and native XML database technology are the keys to
    simplify Web Services and SOA development -- Integrating Stylus Studio
    and TigerLogic XDMS is a good move," said R.W. Nick Stavros, Ph.D. with
    G2 Software Systems, Inc. who follows innovative new technologies.

    "The partnership between Stylus Studio and Raining Data lets us more
    rapidly deliver leading edge tools to SOA developers," said Frank
    Cohen, Director of Solutions Engineering at Raining Data. "SOA
    developers now work in a visual environment to create, test, and deploy
    services. Our partnership with Stylus Studio takes the complexity out
    of developing SOA and fits within our long-term strategy to increase
    interoperability, performance, and flexibility in information systems."
