IXIASOFT Launches TEXTML Server 3.6

MONTREAL, CANADA--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 5, 2005) -

Latest version of TEXTML Server will appeal to organizations who manage very large volumes of content and require highly scalable and flexible XML content management

IXIASOFT, the native XML database and search engine market leader, announced today the availability of TEXTML Server 3.6. For this release, IXIASOFT has extended TEXTML Server's enterprise-class functionality by providing users with new features enabling them to efficiently manage, search and sort extremely large document bases. This new version of TEXTML Server is aimed at organizations who require scalable and robust XML content management solution.

Key features of TEXTML Server 3.6 include:

Syndicated search

Developed for the management of large volumes of content, the TEXTML Server "Meta Services" feature enables users to query multiple document bases from a single and/or multiple physical servers as if they were querying one single document base. As such, users will obtain one search result, sorted according to any specified sorting criteria. Aimed at document bases managing terabytes of heterogeneous information, this feature elevates TEXTML Server's information retrieval capabilities to a new height - where volume of content simultaneously searched and sorted is virtually unlimited.

Document fragment return

As part of IXIASOFT's continued efforts to optimize searching capabilities, TEXTML Server 3.6 now enables users to access fragments of a document upon a search result, instead of the whole document. This feature maximizes the speed at which search results can be obtained. For example, users can select to have only specific fields returned (ie. Title and Author) which optimizes the access of search results and reduces the amount of processing (XSLT) required on the application tier, especially when dealing with large volumes of documents.

"These are definitely customer-driven features and were developed to answer large-scale needs as we have many customers using TEXTML Server to manage tens of million of assets. With TEXTML Server 3.6, there is now virtually no limit to the number of documents users can store and index in our repository. More than ever, TEXTML Server will appeal to organizations who require high performance and scalable XML content management solutions." said Jean-Paul Chauvet, Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at IXIASOFT.

TEXTML Server 3.6 is now commercially available on the IXIASOFT Web site. A 30-day evaluation version may also be downloaded from the Web site.
