Microsoft has turned to XML (Extensible Markup Language) expert DataChannel for assistance in building an XML parser that will help Microsoft applications share data in a heterogeneous environment. The parser, which "reads" XML for an application, was developed in Java and enables developers to access various data sources, such as mainframes and databases, using XML. The parser is compliant with the XML 1.0 developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and supports Document Type Definition validation and the current version of name spaces. A beta version of the parser is free for noncommercial use; companies can pay a support cost and embed for the technology, which is available on DataChannel's Web site. A beta of the parser for Internet Explorer 5.0 is available on the Microsoft Web site. www.datachannel.com, www.microsoft.com.
