BEDFORD, MA -- 04/19/2006 -- Stylus Studio ( http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading provider of XML tools for advanced XML data integration, today announced that Stylus Studio® 2006 Release 2 XML Enterprise Edition provides integrated support for xqDoc from directly within Stylus Studio's XQuery Editor. As XQuery applications became more complex, so does the need to document XQuery library modules and main modules. Furthermore, as the use of XQuery becomes increasingly popular, developers need example XQuery code and supporting documentation. The XQuery developer community can now use the world's best XQuery tools and xqDoc together.
xqDoc gives teams of developers that extra edge they need for their every day workload. By documenting XQuery files, developers can simplify working on projects when working in software development teams because published documentation is easier to read then source code, and using an automated utility, it's easier to keep your documentation and source code synchronized. xqDoc is essential for multiple developers working on the same XQuery project.
"By leveraging a familiar and proven syntax, we hope that xqDoc will be embraced by the XQuery development community. Based on our experiences, the xqDoc generated output has proven beneficial for learning, understanding, and maintaining an XQuery application We also believe xqDoc is an enabling technology for creating and sharing XQuery modules within and across enterprises", said Darin McBeath, Chief Architect of Elsevier. "Overall, the integration of xqDoc in Stylus Studio's industry-leading XQuery tools further simplifies XQuery development."
