As well as visiting the Expo, I will have the latest version of the Londata UML to XML Schema generator, and would be happy to give demos. The software implements the new 2009 version of the ISO 20022 process for generating XML Schemas from UML. ISO 20022 is the XML format that SWIFT is increasingly using on its network, replacing the older ISO 15022 messages. I'm happy to come and discuss why the methodology that works for SWIFT and ISO can work for your company too.
In addition to Londata's product, I will also be able to demo a companion product from Nomos. Nomos's tool reads business rules from your UML models and converts them into Java code that validates your XML messages. This is validation that you can't do with XML Schemas, and for many companies it is the missing piece that is needed to catch errors that can otherwise lead to major delays in testing and roll-out of new systems. I've seen first hand that if systems that send XML messages go into UAT with too many errors in the messages they are sending (and believe me, they all too often do), it has a huge impact on the testing schedule of the receiving systems, and nobody can really afford to have new systems and new business revenues delayed by weeks or months just because of inadequate checking on XML messages during the development/test/UAT cycle. The Londata and Nomos tools together give companies a chance to address that problem and rein in their schedules.
If you would like to meet up while I am in NY, please feel free to get in touch; my e-mail is [email protected]. If 19-25 June doesn't suit, or you aren't in New York, please get in touch and we can set up an online discussion or demo to suit you.
