Subject [Announce] Apache Xindice XML Database 1.0
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2002 22:25:42 GMT
Apache Xindice XML database 1.0 Released
----------------------------------------

The Apache Xindice team is pleased to announce the release of Apache 
Xindice
1.0. This is the first production release of the Apache Xindice database.
Full source code is available under the terms of the Apache Software 
License
and downloads are available from http://xml.apache.org/xindice

Apache Xindice is a native XML database. As such it has basically one 
purpose,
easy management of XML data. It is not intended as a competitor for 
relational
databases or object databases. Xindice is primarily targeted at new 
application
development where XML has already been determined to play a critical role.
  If
you find your self asking the question, "why should I convert my existing
applications to use Xindice?", then you're probably asking the wrong 
question.
Of course, if those existing applications make extensive use of XML, it 
might
be worth exploring.

The server is currently suitable for medium volume XML storage 
applications. It
supports XPath for queries and XML:DB XUpdate for XML updates. An 
implementation
of the XML:DB XML database API is provided for Java developers and access 
from
other languages is enabled through the download of an XML-RPC plugin.

Changes from the 1.0rc2 release are minor.

- Fixed a path traversal security problem in the HTTP server.
- Fixed the Addressbook example to not send data to the client
   after the connection had already been committed.
- SAXGenerator now properly generates prefixMapping events.

Apache Xindice was formally known as dbXML. The dbXML source code was 
donated
to the Apache Software Foundation in December 2001. The 1.0 release of 
Xindice
represents the conclusion of the work undertaken by the dbXML project and
the official commencement of new development on the Xindice code base. 
Future
development will focus on improved performance, ACID properties, better
standards support and better integration with other Apache projects.
