BOULDER, CO--(Marketwire - January 29, 2008) - Rogue Wave Software, Inc., the leader in enterprise class C++ components and infrastructure, today announced the release of Rogue Wave® HydraSDO™ for XML 2.2 and the next edition of HydraSDO for Databases. Rogue Wave HydraSDO data components automate the creation of high performance, service-oriented data services in Java and C++. The components enable developers to expose any data source as lightweight, independent, and decentralized data services through the Service Data Object (SDO) API, the industry standard data access in SOA.

Rogue Wave HydraSDO for XML 2.2 enables XML documents to be read and updated using the SDO API. HydraSDO for XML provides a Data Access Service (DAS) for parsing XML data and populating a DataGraph consisting of DataObjects and a Change Summary.

HydraSDO for Databases enables developers to use the SDO API to access relational data in both loosely coupled and traditional tightly coupled application architectures. The component provides read/write capability for relational databases using the SDO API without the need to write SQL statements. HydraSDO for Databases includes support for leading databases including Oracle®, SQL Server™, MySQL and Sybase® databases.

Both XML and relational database data sources are made available through the simple XML-style SDO interface, which can be used by multiple applications as a real-time SOA data service. HydraSDO data components work stand-alone or can be seamlessly integrated with Rogue Wave HydraSCA, the first product available for deploying high performance SOA applications based on the Service Component Architecture (SCA) specification.

"Any given enterprise is likely to have a grab bag of data formats and sources as a result of disparate development efforts, off the shelf applications and business acquisitions. But even the best development team is proficient in a limited number of data types," said Patrick Leonard, Vice President, Engineering and Product Strategy at Rogue Wave. "HydraSDO is a key component of our pledge to ease interoperability with the most widely used platforms, as well as niche ones. With the enhancements we've made, developers can use the single HydraSDO API to expose all of their data sources, increasing developer productivity and accelerating time-to-market to reduce costs, reduce schedule risk, and reduce reliability issues."
