OSS Nokalva Announces Fast Web Services 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 Web Services (FWS) Tools for Java, and C/C++.

The OSS Fast Web Services Tools are ideal for those who use Web Services in resource-constrained and/or bandwidth-constrained environments. The FWS Tools, which create and process highly efficient binary (PER-encoded) SOAP messages, are conformant to the W3C WSDL 1.1, SOAP 1.1 and 1.2, WS-I Basic Profile 1.0, and ITU-T X.892 | ISO/IEC 24824-2 Fast Web Services recommendations. XML SOAP messages are supported, ensuring your ability to exchange SOAP messages with XML based peers.

The Tools consist of three main components: an OSS FWS Compiler, an OSS FWS Runtime, and an optional OSS FWS Transport Layer Runtime.

--  The OSS FWS Compiler takes a WSDL 1.1 service description as input,
    and generates schema-derived files for inclusion in your application.
--  The OSS FWS Runtime library is a collection of functions for use in
    writing efficient Web Services applications in Java, C, or C++.
--  The Transport Layer Runtime can be used to send/receive SOAP messages.

Offering a truly optimized solution, the OSS FWS Tools address size as well as performance. Binary (PER encoded) data is more compact than XML, conserving network bandwidth. The OSS FWS Tools yield messages that average 1/5th the size of XML SOAP messages; our parsing speed is 5 times that of a traditional XML parser.

Rajul Gupta, Director of Development at OSS Nokalva explained, "Other Web Services optimization solutions focus on either compression, or performance -- often optimizing one at the expense of the other. Our FWS toolkit addresses both aspects, offering a fully optimized Web Services solution. The OSS FWS Tools deliver optimized size, serialization, and parsing."

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