Altova Announces Latest Release

Jun 11, 2015


BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Altova announced the availability of Version 2015 Release 4 (v2015r4) of its Altova MissionKit desktop developer tools and line of server software products. This release provides new functionality to increase validation speeds for XML and XBRL, adds frequently requested functionality for EDGAR filing validation, provides support for SQLite databases and the TRADACOMS EDI format, and much more.

The new release features tight integration between XMLSpy and installed RaptorXML Servers for faster validation. Additionally, EDGAR (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval) is a system that performs automated collection, validation, and indexing of financial statements filed by companies to the United States SEC. With Version 2015 Release 4, EDGAR filing validation is now available on both RaptorXML+XBRL Server and in XMLSpy.

TRADACOMS is an early EDI standard used primarily in the United Kingdom retail, insurance, and book industry business sectors. Although the development of TRADACOMS standards ceased in 1995, it is still widely used in legacy systems, and data mapping of TRADACOMS messages is frequently required. In Version 2015 Release 4 of MapForce and MapForce Server, TRADACOMS data may now be used as a source, intermediate, or target component in data mapping projects involving other EDI data, XML, relational databases, flat files, and more.

Altova database-enabled products support all major relational databases, the most recent addition being SQLite. SQLite support was introduced in Altova MapForce and MobileTogether in earlier releases, and has now been extended to XMLSpy, StyleVision, DatabaseSpy, and other products in the Altova MissionKit, as well as Altova Server Software products.
