San Diego, California – (via THE HOSTING NEWS) – August 23, 2005 –
Snapbridge Software, a leading software innovator, has announced that it is offering a free reference application that generates Google Sitemaps to demonstrate the power of Snapbridge’s new transformational language, named XML-Echo.
XML-Echo is an open source XML-based computer language for transforming and processing data from heterogeneous sources as well as XML. Four years in the making, XML-Echo is designed for use by developers who want to streamline development time.
The Google Sitemap Generator service is free for any organization or individual that maintains a website and wishes to make it easier for Google to include their site in Google’s search engine. Snapbridge’s free reference application, powered by XML-Echo, will crawl the assigned website, index it and then generate an XML document that conforms to the Google Sitemap standard. It can also let Google know it is ready for pickup. This sitemap project is also being released to the open source community so that anyone can modify or use it for free. Visit http://sitemap.xmlecho.org for more information.
Snapbridge has also introduced today its 2.0 version of the company’s popular Cross Media Server. This new version builds upon the first release that introduced searching and archiving of media content and now provides a dynamic website publishing feature that allows users to re-use and publish content that is stored in the archive and create new content for instant publishing online. It is structured to allow publishers to create new publications in minutes and quickly populate those publications with new content, RSS feeds, search results and any content that is in its repository, all with no programming. Downloads of software with a 30-day free trial are available at http://www.snapbridge.com.
Nicknamed a “glue language” by Snapbridge’s developers, XML-Echo enables developers to easily access and then transform structured and semi-structured content into a XML format and then easily publish that content to multiple XML or non-XML formats. XML-Echo can be used to create virtual documents in real time.
Benjamin Chen, Chairman and Chief Technology Officer, Snapbridge Software, Inc. commented on the new developments, “Releasing XML-Echo marks another important step in Snapbridge’s mission to delivering advanced and efficient software solutions to the publishing and media industries.
