2/24/2006 - Justsystems, Inc. (JASDAQ: 4686), a leading document processing software provider, announced today that it will work with IBM Workplace software to run joint research for XML data processing on rich client system.

IBM Workplace Client Technology is an integrated client platform which supports strong collaboration features. It provides a runtime environment and brings high productivity to employees by running office applications such as e-mail, instant messaging, document processing, presentation charts and spreadsheets. Furthermore, many business applications will be prepared by development partners. Workplace Client Technology is based on the Eclipse framework, and many application developers can utilize the Eclipse open source framework for system integration.

xfy is a Justsystems technology that can process any kind of XML data seamlessly. It enables easy visualization and easy data handling of XML with much less effort than ever before. It not only gives XML documents calculation and data processing capabilities but also enables XML documents with multiple XML vocabularies to be created, edited and browsed.

xfy Enterprise Solution 1.0, scheduled for release in 2Q/2006, helps businesses build SOA and Web service client systems and supports speedy XML application development. Justsystems also plans to release IBM DB2 Viper Extension Kit that works as a front-end for DB2 Viper, generates XML Query as input for DB2 Viper and creates visual XML output, all automatically.

IBM and Justsystems will work together to enhance the potential of XML data processing by combining Workplace Client Technology with xfy technology, targeting xfy porting to the Eclipse framework and support for the ODF format and multi-language support for XML document.
