ObjectBuilders Featured in Fifth Edition of Top-Selling XML Handbook
LiveXML Illustrates Chapter on Portable Rich Client Applications;
Philadelphia – December 9, 2003 – Charles F. Goldfarb’s XML Handbook, the leading XML resource with over 100,000 copies in print, is now available in a revised and expanded Fifth Edition. The new book totals more than 1,250 pages, covering the full breadth of XML applications, tools, and technologies that are revolutionizing Web services, e-business, and software development. ObjectBuilders’ suite of business applications (based on the company’s "LiveXML" player technology) is featured in the book's coverage of portable rich client applications.
"So much has happened because of XML since the last edition, that we had to write a new book," said Dr. Goldfarb, the father of the markup language technology used in XML. "XML now affects everything, from business areas like supply chain and demand chain management to programming and Web infrastructure – even the desktop! Rich client applications are a significant trend that we cover for the first time in this edition."
Industry experts from leading XML providers and users participated, including ObjectBuilders and such household names as Adobe, IBM, Intel, and Microsoft.
Robert L. Schmitter, ObjectBuilders’ CEO and contributing expert, had these comments: "The XML Handbook is the industry’s premier source of information about XML, so we’re excited to be part of it. We believe that portable rich client applications are the future of business solutions, as organizations search for ways to deploy mission-critical applications quickly, cost-effectively, and reliably."
Included with the new edition of The XML Handbook are two CD-ROMs that contain 200 free XML software packages, trial versions of major XML products – including a full-blown business application developed with ObjectBuilders’ LiveXML player technology – and a library of XML-related specifications.
