Many products today simply support the use of XML, including many HTML-based and text-based search systems that have added XML. They simply treat XML as yet more text content. GoXML on the other hand is built from the ground up to leverage XML syntax.
This is reflected in the rich feature set and ability to examine XML documents not just as text, but as a structured collection of content and semantics.
Even then, some engines are aware of the structural information, but beyond that have no embedded abilities to transform and manipulate business semantic content. GoXML is an integrated solution including SchemaExpress and ExpressXchg as partner systems. This combination of capabilities provides a fully functional business information product.
Also, many database systems now support XML content and use familiar SQL-style querying into the content. While this has attractions from the standpoint of existing deployed technology, it also has many significant limitations compared to a standalone XML search system that can fully leverage the paradigm shift that XML provides.
As an interim solution, businesses may find SQL databases that support XML content a useful tool, however, for distributed information content across the internet a fully integrated XML content system provides significantly more flexibility, scalability, and performance. XML schema-based transactions also replace traditional normalized SQL tables and a row-and-columns approach to information storage with a highly flexible transaction and workflow-based model.
GoXML represents the next generation of dynamic information manipulation for the Internet.
