Markup Technology designed an innovative extensible framework, MT Pipeline, for the pervasive use of XML both inside and outside the enterprise. However, the company is no longer actively trading. Our implementation remains of potential interest and value: it is highly optimised, and could serve as the basis of a high-performance implementation of the W3C XProc Recommendation—if you are interested, please contact us.

The Markup Technology XML Pipeline Framework is a new enterprise-class XML application development and execution framework. It supports a high performance approach to combining XML data collection, transformation and distribution to implement applications and provide web services. By addressing the need for XML processing it provides the key enabling technology for the next phase of development of XML. MT Pipeline is equally at home providing information integration within the enterprise (XML-based EAI) or providing XML-defined services outside the enterprise (Web Services).

For a more detailed introduction to the power of pipelines, see an introduction to MT Pipeline. Or dive in and try some of our showcase pipelines online.

See our Further Reading page for links to a wide range of information about XML pipeline languages.

Our successor company, Markup Systems, provides consultancy services on all aspects of XML technology.
