DAE (Document Application Environment) is a Java-based SDK for processing
XML documents.  The foundations of this SDK is the DSSSL Developer's Toolkit 
developed at Copernican Solutions.  This toolkit is based on a componentized 
design allowing different technology components to be substituted in the DAE 
environment without affecting the other components.

The DAE currently supports: DSSSL SDQL, DSSSL Style Language, DSSSL Groves,
XML processing, and Scheme or Java Programming.

In addition, the DAE has been integrated into a Java-based web server product
called the DAE Server.  This product allows development web-based DAE 

An add-on component called the JSPI (Java SGML Parsing Interface) provides
parsing and grove generation for SGML documents using a native component.


We strongly believe that DSSSL, SGML, and XML technology in Java is fundamental 
technology.  In light of this, we have restructured our licensing policy 
allows us to ensure that the right kind on technology--especially Java-based 
technology--is available for use and experimentation as well as for developing 
commercial products.

This policy also allows us to work with "Development Partners" ensuring our
technology or what results from working with these Development Partners is
available in a majority of web application environments.  Development Partners
benefit from a close development relationship, support, and immediate access to 
technology updates.

  Non-Commercial Use         - Free
  Internal Commercial Use    - Free
  Commercial Re-distribution - Requires a Development Partner Agreement.
