Verity Enhances KeyView Software Development Kits

Nov 14, 2003

Verity Inc. has announced the release of its Verity KeyView Software Development Kits (SDKs) targeted for integration with enterprise applications. The SDKs provide users access to a range of intellectual capital in 295 file formats and more than 70 languages. The Verity KeyView Software Development Kits consist of: Verity KeyView Export SDK, that dynamically converts multiple file formats into XML or Web-ready HTML format; Verity KeyView Viewing SDK, which allows users to view and print documents, without installing the native applications; and Verity KeyView Filter SDK, which permits applications to extract text and metadata from documents in various formats for use in searching, indexing, and document management systems.

Verity KeyView SDKs can be integrated into enterprise applications, because each supports a range of programming environments, such as C, Java, and Com; as well as the Unicode character set standard. The release also provides support for the latest versions of many operating systems, including: Linux, Unix, and Windows Server 2003. By applying an XML vocabulary to the data structures in documents, KeyView Export makes it possible to index and search content and metadata in context. The XML output is integrated into any modern application. Verity KeyView Export can also automatically convert documents to fully compliant HTML, so users can view almost any content in their Web browsers.

Verity KeyView Viewing SDK lets developers add WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) capabilities to their applications for viewing and printing of most word processing, spreadsheet, presentation, graphic, multimedia, compression, and encoding formats. KeyView Viewing SDK allows end-users to view and print multiple file formats, without requiring end-users to license and install multiple native applications associated with the file types. The Verity KeyView Filter SDK lets applications filter and extract text from multiple formats on a variety of platforms. KeyView Filter automatically recognizes up to 295 file types and applies the correct filter without relying on filename extensions. As a result, applications can interact with information from different sources and in various formats. For proprietary file formats not directly supported, the KeyView Filter SDK also allows customers to build custom filters to meet their business requirements. Verity KeyView SDK 7.4 is available now.
