OSS Nokalva Announces Fast Infoset Tools

SOMERSET, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 2, 2006 -- OSS Nokalva, Inc., a leading developer of standards based software toolkits for building data communications applications, announced today the availability of the OSS Fast Infoset (FI) Tools.

Having an XML Schema has been critical in the XML performance battle... until now. The OSS Fast Infoset Tools deliver standards-based, fast, compact XML, even without an XML schema. Fast Infoset (FI) is an international standard developed to address XML performance issues. The standard optimizes XML by specifying a standardized binary representation for the XML Information Set. Fast Infoset encodings provide smaller encoding sizes and faster processing times than equivalent XML representations.

The OSS Fast Infoset Tools offer significant performance improvements without requiring any XML Schema. Using the OSS FI Tools to process Fast Infoset, rather than traditional XML, results in messages averaging 3 times smaller and processing speeds averaging 5 times faster. For many resource-limited and/or bandwidth-constrained environments, this optimization means the difference between whether or not XML can be deployed.

Our Tools enable you to represent and transmit your XML more efficiently by utilizing Fast Infoset encodings. Runtime API functions create and process Fast Infoset documents and perform lossless conversion between traditional XML and optimized Fast Infoset representations of XML documents. Use our SAX-like decoder to parse Fast Infoset encodings as if your traditional SAX parser were reading the XML document corresponding to the Fast Infoset binary data.

Experience optimized size and performance. Our Tools improve the performance of serializing and deserializing XML, allowing XML to be stored more efficiently than traditional XML documents -- all without any loss of information. At the same time, OSS FI Tools deliver compression superior to utilities such as gzip, which optimizes only size.

The OSS FI Tools are currently available for C/C++. Java support will be available soon. The Tools include complete documentation, online help, and 24 x 7 real time support. 30-day evaluations are available.
