As Oracle's XML Technology Evangelist, of course I'm  
excited to tell the world about the "Technology Blast" of six 
new XML technology components made available today on our 
Oracle Technet Website. 
 - New XSLT engine inside a faster "v2" Java XML Parser 
 - XML SQL Utility for easier database "XML-out" and "XML-in" 
 - XSQL Servlet for easily serving up SQL/XML/XSLT-powered "datapages" 
 - XML Parsers in three new languages (C, C++, and PL/SQL) 
When it rains it pours :-)  Take a look! 
XML Parser for Java v2 (w/ XSLT) 
   - Completely re-architected, optimized performance 
   - Integrated XSLT Engine (Supports April 20 1999 WD) 
   - Runs inside the Oracle8i database or out 
   - Node.transformNode() to Transform a DOM Node by XSLStylesheet 
   - Instantiate & Cache an XSLStylesheet Once and Reuse It 
   - Output of Transformations Can be DocumentFragments 
XML SQL Utility for Java 
   - Convert results of SQL statements 
     or ResultSets to XML 
   - Supports DOM or XML-text output 
   - Handles all Oracle8i Object/Relational Datatypes 
   - Works with Views and structured Object Views 
   - Runs inside the Oracle8i database or out 
   - Java & PL/SQL interfaces 
   - Save XML Documents of a canonical  
     format to tables or object views 
XSQL Servlet 
   - Java Servlet written utilizing the XML SQL 
     Utility and XML Parser v2's XSLT Engine to 
     easily build dynamic "datapages" in XML out 
     of one or more SQL queries embedded in any 
     XML document. 
   - Optionally transform resuting "XSQL" page by 
     an XSLT transform in the server or client 
   - Tons of supplied demos, including a complete 
     sample "Do You XML?"  Website built out of a 
     *single* XSQL page with a single XSLT 
XML Parser for PL/SQL  
   - DOM/SAX/Namespaces-Compliant XML Parser for PL/SQL 
     (Oracle8i Only) 
XML Parser for C  
   - DOM/SAX/Namespaces-Compliant XML Parser for C 
XML Parser for C++  
   - DOM/SAX/Namespaces-Compliant XML Parser for C++
