DirXML

DirXML is Novell's directory interchange software that uses XML to keep different directories synchronized. With DirXML, an IT manager can administer multiple user databases from a single interface, using Novell Directory Services (NDS) eDirectory to replicate the information. DirXML works within an existing network infrastructure and integrates NDS with directories in Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Notes, Windows 2000 Active Directory, and others.

As data flows into DirXML, it is translated into XML. The data is also converted into the target directory's native data format.

Novell is the first software vendor to utilize XML as the key language for directory schema publishing, data interchange, and query. Using DirXML, a company only has to enter information once and it will be identically replicated across its entire network. For instance, should a company insert address changes into a customer service database, those changes will automatically appear in its billing, shipping, and marketing directories. Thus, DirXML reduces manual labor costs, minimizes the possibility for human error, and saves in redundant data management expenses.

DirXML supports Windows 2000, Windows NT, Sun Solaris, NetWare, and Linux. Novell plans to add support for UNIX Tru64.
