Subject: XMLSolutions Supports Uniform Code Council EDI Standards


XMLSolutions Announces Support for XML Representation of 
Uniform Code Council (UCC) EDI Standards
XML Representation of UCC-Specific EDI Standards Requires No Data Mapping 
for Retail Industry

McLean, VA (October 10, 2000)  XMLSolutions Corporation, a leading worldwide 
provider of software for conducting XML-based direct materials procurement, 
today announced support for the bi-directional translation of Uniform Code 
Council (UCC) direct materials EDI transaction sets to XML through the 
XMLSolutions Business Integration Platform 2.0.  XMLSolutions provides 
the only product that supports the XML representation of UCC-specific EDI 
transactions immediately at product installation.

Dedicated to a worldwide system for the unique identification of products, 
shipping units, assets, locations and services, the UCC is a not-for-profit 
standards organization with nearly 240,000 member organizations and global 
trading requirements in over 140 countries. The UCC takes a global leadership 
role in administering and promoting electronic communication standards 
and the mapping of standards with business processes to increase the efficiencies 
of supply chains and other business transactions in multiple industries. 

Typically, time-consuming and highly complex data mapping is required to 
link information in EDI transactions with the XML representation, but with 
XMLSolutions' unique method for seamlessly converting EDI messages to XML, 
this mapping requirement is absent.  This feature delivers a 3 to 1 time-to-market 
and cost savings advantage over other products, and it offers a complete 
solution for EDI-to-XML translation to the thousands of companies that 
rely on UCC standards.

"Due to the heavy reliance on EDI systems and the complex, specialized 
processes associated with direct materials procurement in the retail industry, 
UCC members require a secure Internet-based solution that leverages their 
existing direct materials procurement processes," stated Ron Shelby, CEO 
of XMLSolutions Corporation.  "The XMLSolutions Business Integration Platform 
offers retail suppliers and customers a unique industry-specific solution 
for solving their e-procurement challenges."

Through the diverse support of legacy applications and lack of dependence 
on technical abilities of smaller business partners, the product removes 
information exchange barriers, enabling access to all suppliers, buyers 
and partners.  By providing a central location for all trading partner 
management, customers can reduce the time lost tracking down orders and 
information shared through non-electronic means.   In addition, XMLSolutions 
Business Integration Platform offers a mechanism for delivering valuable 
information to decision makers managing just-in-time production and on-demand 

Seamless EDI Connectivity to XML Standards
The EDI-to-XML translation capabilities provided by XMLSolutions Business 
Integration Platform supports all ANSI X12 and EDIFACT transaction sets 
and links to existing EDI Translators from companies such as Peregrine 
Systems, GE Global Exchange Services, Sterling Commerce, TIE Commerce, 
and Compaq-DEC/EDI.
