XML Platform for Data Exchange
Category:  Development Tools
Details:  Allora is an XML platform that consists of: (1) design-time tools for mapping XML to relational data; and (2) a set of application programming interfaces to its run-time engine for building local applications.

Allora speeds development and deployment by transparently mapping XML elements and attributes to underlying relational database structures. Once Allora mapping is in place, full bi-directional XML-RDB access is enabled. Available in both Java and Windows versions, Allora gives developers a simplified, consistent XML interface to relational data.

Allora’s design-time components are the graphical Mapper application, source code wizards, object interfaces, and sample source code. The design-time graphical Mapper application lets developers see DTDs or XML schemas and database catalog structures. Using the mapping files generated by the Mapper, developers can request data specifying XML structures rather than database structures or SQL. These mapping files are passed to Allora’s application programming interfaces by calling applications.

Allora offers a rich, flexible set of interfaces. Developers can refer to data by XML element/attribute references or by RDB catalog structures. Similarly, they can exercise XML element/subelement methods or specify record/field SQL commands. Allora manages all SQL middleware connection processes for efficient, proper database interaction.
