New Levels of Openness in Application Development
Because of the support for these standards, the resulting applications can be fully integrated with other web-enabled software. Together with your Java-enabled web server, MANTIS dramatically improves your web application development and integration capabilities. In fact, your application server becomes a MANTIS-enabled server, providing new levels of flexibility and openness.
MANTIS enables you to export MANTIS screen/form entities as XML documents for access via web browsers and web design tools. In addition, you can also send MANTIS information to non-MANTIS applications in a web-services style.
Capabilities supported by MANTIS XML include:
- Standards-based presentation using XHTML and Cascading Style Sheets
- Dynamic display and interaction using the Document Object Model
- Data interchange and manipulation using XML and XSLT
