Planet 7 Technologies

Planet 7 Technologies is the developer of the XML Network Server, a Java-based host for ecommerce or enterprise application integration networks that enables many-to-many sharing of XML data in real time. The architecture is optimized for handling ecommerce requests generated in conformance with standard XML schemas and Document Type Definitions (DTDs). The requests can be routed based on namespaces, applications, or host names. The system has been made extensible and follows a hub and router model where each XML Network Server can act as a hub. The "router" for connecting resources to hubs is created with what the company calls a "full duplex" (or bi-directional) Application Programming Interface (API) called XML Network Client Objects.

The network scales up by the addition and connection of servers in a modular fashion. Other distributed systems can use XNS as an XML handling interface. Though an agreement with Extensibility, Inc., Planet 7 is bundling a trial version of Turbo XML (which includes XML Authority, XML Instance and XML Console) with the XNS development package to expose developers to a complete network application development environment.
