The following white papers (reports) have been added to our website to explain new developments concerning the Data Integration Suite. These reports include an explanation of the new development, and are here to help educate you about the Suite and its features.
EDI Gets On The Bus
This white paper demonstrates how you can easily integrate the Progress DataDirect Data Integration Suite runtimes on virtually any JMS implementation.
Taming Data Chaos: Simplify Data Integration with DataDirect Data Integration Suite
Alone or in conjunction with other DataDirect solutions, such as Shadow (for mainframe access), the Data Integration Suite can help reverse rising costs via savings in multiple areas. This paper describes the Suite and its capabilities, and illustrates its value proposition with a variety of customer testimonials and use cases across diverse industries.
Helping the Insurance Industry with ACORD Standards
Learn how DataDirect XQuery is being used to help the insurance industry develop and manage applications that must adhere to ACORD (Association for Cooperative Operations Research and Development) standards for the insurance, reinsurance, and related financial services industries.
VSJ Review: Data Integration Suite
The Data Integration Suite is a broad, sophisticated package that lets you create XML applications with very little coding. The pipeline editor and XQuery mapper are excellent designers and easy to use for application creation. The XQuery processor and converters let you use XQuery in your applications in a very simple way, and anyone used to JDBC will have no difficulty with that step.
Building XQuery Based Web Service Aggregation and Reporting Applications
With a vast amount of data being published in XML format by multiple sources, the need has arisen for an easy and efficient means of extracting and manipulating this information. XQuery has emerged as an ideal way to aggregate data from Web services, relational databases, and other applications that employ XML.
DataDirect XQuery Performance: Generating SQL
Implementing XQuery efficiently for relational databases is not trivial, because XQuery and SQL support different operations on quite different data models. At DataDirect, we emphasized performance and scalability in the design of our XQuery engine from the beginning, with a strong focus on relational data. This paper presents some of the techniques we use to generate efficient SQL for relational databases to implement XQuery for these data sources.
Debunking XQuery myths and misunderstandings
You might think XQuery does everything and is well understood, but misconceptions and misunderstandings still exist in the software development community about XQuery. In this article, Frank Cohen details and clarifies many of the myths and misunderstandings that surround XQuery.
Tips and Tricks
Tips and Tricks answers a lot of questions about how you can get the most bang for your buck by using inventive Data Integration Suite coding solutions and, of course, the power and added functionality available from the XQuery processor.
