DataChannel announces the immediate availability of eXtensible Markup
Language (XML) and eXtensible Stylesheet Language (XSL) implementations,
delivering the most advanced XML framework in a Java-based parser

Download Beta 2 of the XML Java-based Parser co-developed by Microsoft and
DataChannel now available http://www.datachannel.com/xml

Redmond, WA-December 21, 1998-DataChannel, Inc., announced today that they
have delivered the Beta 2 version of the XML parser (XJ2) written in Java
that is being co-developed with Microsoft.  This release brings the promise
of XSL and XSL pattern matching capabilities to a Java-based XML parser for
the first time.

 XJ2 includes significant enhancements from the Beta 1 version of the parser
including: a validating XML engine, XSL support, and transformations of
data.

Microsoft has selected DataChannel to co-develop the Java-based XML parser
because of the company's expertise in both XML and the Java language.
Leveraging the XML specification, DataChannel and Microsoft are helping to
facilitate the automation of e-commerce through a standards based
transaction and exchange protocols; the enabling of data-warehousing though
automated data exchange between disparate data stores; and the automation of
document and knowledge management systems through the dynamic search and
retrieval of personalized information.

"The relationship between Microsoft and DataChannel, Inc. is fulfilling the
promise of delivering XML-enabled solutions.  As a result, this relationship
gives us confidence that users, programmers, and IT shops can start
sufficiently preparing themselves for a future in which XML will be the
standard language of data," said David Pool, CEO, DataChannel, Inc.

Beta 2 of the XML Java-based parser co-developed by Microsoft and
DataChannel includes the following features:
*       XSL support. With the DataChannel XSL processor, which is based on
the latest W3C Working Draft, developers can apply style sheets to XML data
and display or transform the data in a dynamic and flexible way that can be
easily customized.
*       XSL pattern matching of XML Data. The pattern matching capabilities
of the DataChannel XSL processor allow developers to programmatically find
and extract information within an XML data set on the client or the server.
*       XML Document Object Model (DOM). The DOM is a standard object
application-programming interface that gives developers programmatic control
of XML document content, structure, formats and more. The DataChannel XML
implementation includes full support for the W3C XML DOM Recommendation and
is accessible from script, the Visual Basic development system, C++, Java,
and Java Script.
*       Validating XML engine. The XML engine has been substantially
enhanced and fully supports W3C XML 1.0 and XML Namespaces, which allow
developers to qualify element names uniquely on the Web and thus, avoid
conflicts between elements with the same name.  Native XML support in Java
means that developers can count on the full XML processing capabilities
being present to read and manipulate the data they move between their
applications and components across different platforms.
*       XML Schemas. Schemas define the rules of an XML document, including
element names and rich data types, which elements can appear in combination,
and which attributes are available for each element.
*       Server-side XML and XSL. Server-side processing allows a standard
means of passing data between multiple distributed application servers -
even across operating system boundaries.

"Microsoft is pleased that DataChannel has been able to release Beta 2 of
the Java-based parser so quickly after the Beta 2 release of our Windows XML
implementation last month," said Jean Paoli, XML product unit manager at
Microsoft.  "The support for XML 1.0, XSL, the XML DOM and other
cutting-edge XML features that we introduced in that release gave customers
the most complete XML implementation for building XML-based applications.
Now, due to the co-development effort with DataChannel, customers also have
a Java-based parser with support for these features."

The XML Java-based parser and Applicability
XJ2 plays an integral part in the DataChannel XML Roadmap. The primary goal
of the DataChannel XML Roadmap is for users to understand how XML can
revolutionize the way corporations conduct business and how companies can
achieve the quickest time to market (i.e. developers create software faster
with a lower cost of delivery and management).

Using the DataChannel XML framework through DataChannel RIO and XJ2,
corporate developers can take their existing IT infrastructure (i.e. legacy
data, document and knowledge management systems, and data-warehousing
systems) and integrate this infrastructure with a standards-based Internet
protocol (XML) to web-enable the enterprise.  This web-enabled enterprise
would allow for lower total cost of ownership by:
        *       Giving "My Yahoo" - like capabilities to employees and
customers using the corporate intranet and extranet
        *       Creating a Web-based publish, share, and distribution
environment which supports all current legacy systems, including
applications like SAP R/3, PeopleSoft, and Oracle databases.
        *       Ensuring an integration and management migration strategy to
Microsoft Office 2000(tm) when it becomes available.
        *       Cutting the cost to develop and deploy Java, C++, and
Web-based applications
