Astoria Software Enables Enterprise-Level Integration for oXygen Editor

Share Article

Industry’s first enterprise-wide XML component content management system works seamlessly with the industry’s fastest growing XML editor.

Astoria Software, a division of TransPerfect, today announced that its market-leading Astoria Content Management solution now supports the oXygen XML Editor from SyncRO Soft SRL. Principal software development was completed in September 2011 followed by trial deployments to select customers. With beta-level testing now complete, the integration is ready for general distribution into production environments.

Tight Integration between Astoria Content Management and the oXygen XML Editor

Integrating oXygen and Astoria goes far beyond the kinds of editor integrations that are available in a typical XML content management solution. Other XML content management systems (CMSs) support basic content management operations from within the editor, such as file check out and check in. A user running an Astoria-integrated editor also gets check-out and check-in functions, along with sixteen additional operations that include operations on any XML element in a file, such as:

  •     Displaying the XML object’s history and properties
  •     Showing where the XML object is used elsewhere in the CMS
  •     Presenting user-defined attributes on the XML object
  •     Searching for similar XML objects with specific properties and attributes

This level of integration is usually possible only in a custom-built editor embedded within an XML CMS. With Astoria, though, each of these operations is available to the desktop oXygen user from an oXygen menu item. Furthermore, the oXygen integration to Astoria isn’t limited to just the popular DITA vocabulary. Users can define their own XML vocabularies, build documents following those vocabularies in oXygen, and manage those XML files in Astoria.

The First Enterprise-wide XML CMS Meets the Fastest-growing XML Editor
With the announcement of integrated software, Astoria Software combines the world’s first Enterprise solution for XML Component Content Management -- and the first to deliver both an Enterprise-wide SaaS/On-Demand and an On-Premises approach -- with one of the most popular XML editors on the market today, allowing Astoria Software to bring the benefits of XML content creation and management to a wider audience of users.

“Astoria is the preeminent platform for XML content management, delivering solutions to customers who have realized that structured authoring methodologies drive top-line and bottom-line revenue benefits,” said Michael Rosinski, President and CEO of Astoria Software. “We are pleased to announce this integration with the oXygen product, which enjoys a consensus opinion as the fastest growing XML editor on the market today.”
