Magic Software Enterprises, a provider of application development technology and business solutions, and Software AG in Germany announced a partnership to enable XML connectivity for iSeries applications.

Software AG is Europe's largest systems software provider and a pioneer in XML technologies. By combining the strength of Magic eDeveloper with the power of Software AG's Tamino XML Server, the companies provide a powerful technological environment for building and enabling iSeries applications to take advantage of XML and cross-platform data transfer. In addition, existing iSeries applications can be upgraded, modernized and XML-enabled, increasing the value and life span of existing applications.

Magic eDeveloper enables developers to directly access and manipulate extensible markup language (XML) data and instantly assemble Web Services utilizing its new Web Services Assistor for Web services description language (WSDL) operations.

The integration of Magic eDeveloper with the Tamino XML Server has already been proven with the development of a fully automatic document management solution. In this solution, XML data can be accessed directly from the iSeries environment via SOAP or Web Services.
Tamino generates the desired output format including ASCII, PDF or XML for the multiple communication channels such as FTP, e-mail, fax or unified messaging. The solution is designed to enable the filing of XML documents without transformation processes. As a meta- language, XML seamlessly bypasses the boundaries of systems, formats and communication channels.
