Altova Version 2018 Release 2 Revolutionizes JSON Processing

Apr 19, 2018

Altova announced the release of Version 2018 release 2 of its MissionKit desktop developer tools and server software products. This release introduces new tools for processing JSON with XSLT and XPath/XQuery, more flexible ways to work with functions in data mapping projects, and much more.

More information on this, and other highlights from the newly released features:

  • Adding to support for editing and converting JSON, XMLSpy now also supports processing and transforming JSON in its XSLT, XPath, and XQuery editors, builders, and debuggers.
  • New Node Functions in the MapForce data mapping tool make it possible to define data processing functions and/or default values and assign them to one or more nodes without repeating the same function multiple times – and without drawing mapping lines. Node Functions are easy-to-use and reduce the time required to define and maintain mappings significantly
  • UModel now supports C++ for program code generation from UML models, reverse engineering of existing code, and round-trip engineering, adding even more power to this advanced – yet affordable – UML modeling tool.
  • Adding to the popular family of server products, available in this release is the new DiffDog Server. This new product combines the rich file and directory comparison options of DiffDog with the power of today’s parallel computing environments to let you automate high volume comparisons and generate diff reports automatically.
