Altova announced the release of Version 2017 Release 3 of its MissionKit desktop developer tools and server software products. This release includes new revolutionary back-mapping of XSLT and XQuery output in XMLSpy, a powerful new ‘join’ component for data mapping in MapForce, and the ability to convert a StyleVision design to a MobileTogether mobile app design. This release also introduces a new edition of MapForce Server called MapForce Server Accelerator Edition with specific optimizations for customers who need super-high performance processing in their data transformations.
“Exceeding the expectations of our users is always a goal, and we are thrilled to again announce unique new and innovative features inspired by customer feedback,” said Alexander Falk, CEO and President of Altova. “These new features should save developers incredible amounts of time as they build the next generation of cutting edge applications.”
One new feature included in XMLSpy is XSLT and XQuery back-mapping – this allows a developer to click on or mouse over elements in an output document and instantly see the source XML node and XSLT or XQuery expression that produced that portion of the output. This unique functionality, which doesn’t modify the output document at all, saves incredible amounts of time in debugging, refining, and perfecting XSLT and XQuery code.
