Fellow XML developers:

We are pleased to announce the final release of the new XML Spy 4.1
Suite! Download a FREE evaluation copy today! www.xmlspy.com/download.  

The XML Spy 4.1 Suite is a complete out-of-the-box solution for all
phases of Advanced XML Application Development, supporting the entire
corporate XML workflow, beginning with visual data-modeling, through to
XML authoring and editing, storing to XML Repository, and content
delivery through XML transformation!  XML Spy 4.1 Suite consists of
three products: XML Spy 4.1 Document Editor, XML Spy 4.1 XSLT Designer,
and XML Spy 4.1 Integrated Development Environment.

The XML Spy 4.1 Integrated Development Environment (IDE) builds on the
success of previous versions by adding new functionality, specifically:
  + Authoring support for the W3C's XSL Formatting Objects (XSL:FO),
    including entry helpers for XSL and FO! View resulting XSL:FO
    Transformations directly on the screen!

  + Built-in support for Apache FOP! Automatically Generate PDF,
    PostScript, PCL, MIF, and many other file types with a

  + Complete support for the W3C's final XML Schema Recommendation,
    including graphical Schema design, schema-based validation, and
    schema conversion tools!

  + Complete ODBC and ADO database access functionality, including
    database schema to XML schema conversions, and advanced import
    & export features for legacy data!

  + Extendable 3rd Party Plug-in architecture for solution providers
    to build custom applications!

  + Customizable user-interface and new Windows XP look-and-feel!

The XML Spy 4.1 XSLT Designer is an innovative new approach to automate
writing of complex XSLT Stylesheets using an intuitive, drag-and-drop
user interface. It also enables the customization of the XML Spy 4.1
Document Editor by defining an XSLT Stylesheet and additional
editing-specific options based upon the underlying DTD or XML Schema for
use during the content creation or editing process.

The XML Spy 4.1 Document Editor is the easiest word-processor style
free-flow WYSISYG text editor for XML documents, empowering
non-technical people to create and edit XML documents. It supports
form-based data input, graphical elements, presentation and editing of
arbitrary repeating XML elements as tables, real-time validation, and
consistency checking using XML Schema. The Document Editor is available
as a stand-alone application, integrated as a separate view within the
XML Spy IDE user-interface (if you purchase the XML Spy Suite product),
and as a Browser Plug-In for Internet Explorer, which allows for XML
content creation anywhere on the Internet!

The XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework consists of the XML Spy 4.1 XSLT
Designer and the XML Spy 4.1 Document Editor, which together form an
XSLT & XML Schema based, enterprise-wide content management solution for
creating and deploying large volumes of XML content in real-world
production environments such as web-publishing, knowledge management or
e-commerce.  A live demonstration of the XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework
in action is hosted at www.nanonull.com (requires Internet Explorer 5.5
or 6.0).  The demo consists of several rich electronic forms based on
advanced schema and XSLT, which were written using the XSLT designer,
and are displayed and edited on your browser using the automatically
installed Document Editor browser plug-in.  

The XML Spy 4.1 Suite 
The XML Spy 4.1 IDE and XML Spy 4.1 Document Framework together comprise
the XML Spy 4.1 Suite, the most comprehensive tool Suite for Advanced
XML Application Development (AXAD)!

Master the art of all XML Technologies with the help of the easy-to-use
XML Spy 4.1 Suite! XML Spy is proud to announce the first authorized
course for learning XML with XML Spy 4.1. XMLSpyBootCamp! - EARLY BIRD

Developed by the Richard Hale Shaw Group (www.RichardHaleShawGroup.com
-- creators of the XMLBootCamp, UMLBootCamp and other BootCamp-style,
training courses for software developers on COM, ASP, UML and .NET),
XMLSpyBootCamp is a 4-day, hands-on intense immersion in learning XML
using XML Spy 4.1. Starting with XML fundamentals and mark-up, and
moving quickly to style-sheets (XSL and XSLT using the XSLT Designer in
XML Spy) and validation (DTD's and Schemas, plus the XML Spy Schema
Editor and IE plug-in), the course covers both the DOM and the SAX
parser, as well as server-side XML and SOAP. Taught in a rigorous,
hands-on fashion by professionals such as Josh Holmes (who wrote the XML
Spy BootCamp course and who teaches the XMLBootCamp), you'll complete
this class knowing exactly how to utilize the latest features of XML Spy
4.1 for building a variety of applications using XML. This course will
be taught publicly, starting in late October, 2001, and is available as
on-site training as well. For details see www.XMLSPYBOOTCAMP.com.
