MarkLogic has released version 4.0 of its XML Server software
The MarkLogic XML Server includes an XML database, search engine and application server software.
The newly released version 4.0 is the first version of the software
that provides built-in support for a number of different geospatial data tagging formats, including GML, KML and GeoRSS/Simple. It also includes some geospatial query tools to use these new formats, including the ability to search by point, radius, bounding box and polygon constraints.
The software also includes a new third-party text mining tool from Basis Technology Corp. Given a piece of data, such as a name, the software can tag it as a name, date, credit card number or some other form of data. It works across 11 languages. The company has also built in an Open Enrichment Framework that search and other data extraction tools can use to pull data from the server.
Other features includes an alerting feature that will notify subscribers when new data is entered, as well as full compliance with the XQuery 1.0 standard.
