Altova today released a broad set of update to its MissionKit tool suite for XML, database and UML development. Best known for the XMLSpy IDE, MissionKit contains tools to handle data mapping, code generation, stylesheet design, UML modeling and database query manipulation.
In MissionKit Version 2010 Revision 3, new features include support for industry standards iXBRL and National Information Exchange Model (NIEM), and support for mapping data based on SAP’s IDoc EDI format. Altova has also added in some integration with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010.
Some highlights to the individual tools include:
- XMLSpy – can now validate internal naming and coding conventions outside of the XML Schema standard and integrates with VS2010.
- MapForce – C++ code generation has been updated to MSXML6. This data mapping tool can now generate C++ for 64-bit applications and perform mapping based on SAP’s IDoc EDI format.
- UModel – can now generate code in C# 4.0 and reverse engineer C# code to create UML models.
- StyleVision – now supports Inline XBRL (iXBRL) in visual stylesheet and electronic forms design. The iXBRL standard embeds XBRL fragments into an HTML document so that the same source can be used for both human and machine processing.
