Data Junction Corporation announced current and future support for Web services. Data Junction provides integration software for corporations of all sizes and across all verticals to develop flexible solutions for integrating heterogeneous systems for e-commerce and business analysis. In order to deliver the integration power of Web services to its customers, Data Junction is expanding their integration software by incorporating robust and user- friendly Web services functionality.

Today Data Junction supports real- time, event-driven XML transactions and the latest W3C standards. Data Junction facilitates the most fundamental element of Web services, transporting XML over the Internet, the primary component of many of today's integration initiatives. Data Junction products also support XML RPC-based integration as featured in its release of its Adaptor. Data Junction inter-operates with's API to enable the seamless connection of Web-hosted application to various back-end systems and other business applications, providing a bridge for data sharing, manipulation, enrichment and transfer.

Data Junction currently supports SOAP as a lookup object during transformation processes. SOAP lookup objects can enrich any transformation by querying remote services for the Internet, such as supplier inventories and customer credit checks. Data Junction also treats SOAP either as an integration source or target.

In its upcoming product release later this year, Data Junction will enrich its integration technology by further developing and expanding its support of Web services. Data Junction's next release will establish SOAP message integration as a crucial component in its Integration Process Designer, enabling tighter bidirectional integration of SOAP messages into event-driven process flows. This unique feature will allow integration processes to actively leverage Web services, including participation in secure SOAP based messaging frameworks.

Data Junction will also offer innovative technology making Web services more accessible to small and medium businesses (SMB). With its next release, users will be able to create and save predefined integration maps with the ability to expose them to business partners and clients over the Internet as a Web service. Such enriched functionality will work to distribute the integration power and promise of Web services to all businesses, regardless of their size or the size of their budget.
