Spy 4.3 Suite, an XML development tool suite for advanced XML application development, and XML Global Technologies Inc., an XML middleware company, have launched XML Integration Workbench, which they call a powerful and cost-effective alternative to the more expensive solutions offered by large integration vendors.
