We've seen a tremendous amount of interest resulting from our Open Source processing engine announcement last December
Kirkland, WA (PRWEB) January 9, 2007
UBmatrix, the leading provider of XBRL-based software solutions, announced the public availability of the Open Source edition of their XBRL processing engine software. While the company will continue to offer customers a commercial version of the UBmatrix™ Processing Engine that is fully supported, scalable, and maintains continued compliance with XBRL International specifications, UBmatrix has published source code from its publicly-released Java version shipped last July to a new Open Source project on SourceForge.net.
"We've seen a tremendous amount of interest resulting from our Open Source processing engine announcement last December", remarked Joe Pistritto, Vice President of Development at UBmatrix. "There's so much buzz right now around XBRL. We are always hearing from developers who are looking for software that can help them implement XBRL solutions. We are excited to make this core XBRL application available as Open Source."
The project on SourceForge.net offers more than just the UBmatrix Processing Engine source code. It also includes a compiled run-time version, and a complete set of documentation, including sample code and an application program interface (API) guide. Developers will have all the resources they need to develop sample applications, embed XBRL capabilities into existing applications, produce and validate XBRL instance documents, read and render XBRL into the format of their choice, and more.
UBmatrix also offers a range of other valuable resources for developers:
- By completing the free online registration, UBmatrix xBReeze (http://www.ubmatrix.com/xbreeze) offers developers a freely downloadable copy of UBmatrix XBRL Taxonomy Designer for modeling metadata, business rules, and validation scripts.
- Developers registering with UBmatrix xBReeze can also join Open Source taxonomy projects to get samples of useful XBRL taxonomies and collaborate with other XBRL experts.
- UBmatrix xBReeze also offers tutorials for learning how to use xBReeze for project management, taxonomy version tracking, and more. Visit the xBReeze-Public domain and check out the xBReeze Training repository.
- The UBmatrix book "Financial Reporting Using XBRL" is one of the industry's most complete guides to using XBRL, including dozens of useful examples for business people and developers. Get your copy by visiting Lulu Publishing.
