Subject [Announce] dbXML XML Database Alpha Release Under Apache Style License
Date Mon, 04 Jun 2001 16:25:13 GMT
I don't usually send announcements to this list but in this case I
wanted to make it known that dbXML is now available under an Apache
style license. Hopefully this isn't off topic.

Here is the general announcement.

The dbXML project is pleased to announce the release of version 0.9 of
the dbXML Core XML Database. This release is considered our first alpha
release and is available from http://www.dbxml.org/.

An important note about this release is that the source code for the
dbXML Core is now available under an Apache style license instead of the
previous LGPL license. 

Features added include an XML:DB XUpdate implementation for updating XML
documents, SAX support in the API and a compression mechanism to
increase performance between the client and the server. 

The server is now considered feature complete. Developers are encouraged
to start experimenting with the server for building simple applications.

The dbXML Core is an Open Source native XML database designed to manage
large collections of small XML documents. The server supports XPath
queries and uses an implementation of the XML:DB XML Database API for
development of client applications. The software is easily embedded into
existing applications, highly configurable and openly extensible. The
source code has been released under an Apache style license and is
available for download from the dbXML Project web site

People interested in the use or development of dbXML are encouraged to
join the project mailing lists.

Development of the dbXML Core is sponsored by The dbXML Group L.L.C.
