Corel introduces XML tools

Corel has bolstered its commitment to its Extensible Markup Language (XML) strategy with the announcement of two products.

Smart Graphics Studio is a platform aimed at the creation of Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)-based smart graphics and Web applications that take XML and legacy data and display it in a graphical format to deliver it to PDAs and other handheld devices.

Corel said Studio would enable organisations, Web designers and developers in separating the graphical, functional and data components of applications.

Studio includes Developer SG, Server SG and SVG Viewer.

The second product, XMetal, is designed for the implementation of customised XML applications while continuing to extend the authoring capabilities to ActiveX-compliant applications.

"We're now able to offer XML authoring tools and we've created an ActiveX component version of XMetal that you can embed within a Web browser to a custom application," said Shawn Henderson, the product manager for XMetal.

Henderson added that Corel has seen demand for XML in such verticals as finance, government, manufacturing and the publishing industries.

XMetal 4 is an upgrade from version 3, which was released in February, and is divided into four components that include Author, XMetal for ActiveX, Developer and XMetal Central.

SmartGraphics Studio will be available next year.
