XMLSpy gets its DB2 on
Altova tools for working with IBM DB2 9 pureXML
I'm not very involved with XML these days, so I have to thank my buddy David for bringing this exciting story to my attention.
On May 30th, 2007, Altova announced the introduction of DB2 9 pureXML support in several of their products, including XMLSpy, the gold standard for XML modeling and development software. Starting with Version 2007 Release 3 (v2007r3), XMLSpy, MapForce, StyleVision, and DatabaseSpy will recognize the pureXML features of DB2 9. Even Altova's no-cost XML forms utility, Authentic, is now integrated with pureXML content in DB2.
If you're working with any amount of XML data, regardless of whether or not it's being handled by pureXML, there's probably an Altova product that can help you, so do yourself a favor and make some time to play with a free 30-day trial version.
