Noemax Announces Fast Infoset Interoperability Across Several Platforms

ATHENS, GREECE -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 7, 2007 -- Noemax Technologies Ltd today announced that its implementation of the Fast Infoset binary XML standard passed all tests performed at Sun's Fast Infoset Interoperability Project, demonstrating interoperability with the corresponding implementations of Liquid Technologies Ltd, OSS Nokalva Inc., Sun Microsystems Inc., and TMax Soft Inc.

With interoperability demonstrated between implementations that can be used on a wide range of platforms including Microsoft .NET, Sun GlassFish, BEA WebLogic, TMax Soft JEUS, IBM SDK for Java v6 Early Release as well as natively on Windows, Linux and Solaris, Fast Infoset is becoming the most competitive standard-based encoding of the W3C Information Set.

"Software developers using SOAP, REST and other forms of XML-based communications have been asking for a leaner and faster XML encoding that is based on an open standard and is interoperable -- this is exactly what Fast Infoset delivers," said Arman Djusupov, chief developer at Noemax. "Fast Infoset can be considered as the long-awaited breakthrough in cross-platform data serialization, as it not only decreases document footprint but also increases processing performance. Performance no longer needs to be sacrificed in order to achieve interoperability."

"In tests performed against the text, .NET Binary and MTOM encodings, Fast Infoset was the clear winner as it consistently ranked first both in document size and in transactions per second," according to Djusupov. "In practice users have been reporting up to 5x improvements in Web Services performance when Fast Infoset is used with WCF bindings. Fast Infoset makes sense -- it speeds up WCF communications by offering significantly shorter roundtrips than any of the system-provided message encodings."

Noemax has released two products, FastInfoset.NET™ and WCF-Xtensions™, which enable software developers to easily use Fast Infoset in their services and applications.

FastInfoset.NET introduces Fast Infoset support into the XML processing API of the .NET Framework and .NET Compact Framework, improving the overall efficiency of transmitting, storing and processing XML.

WCF-Xtensions extends the Windows Communication Framework by providing Fast Infoset message encoding, GZIP message compression and dynamic content negotiation, thereby reducing the bandwidth consumption and increasing the performance of Web Services in a flexible and interoperable manner.

Noemax also offers two freely available utilities for viewing and converting Fast Infoset files.
