"The Apache Software Foundation, in collaboration with Bowstreet, DataChannel, Exoffice, IBM, Lotus Development Corporation and Sun Microsystems, today announced the formation of the Project in response to the overwhelming demand for Open Source XML and XSL tools triggered by the rapid adoption of XML."

"XML has become increasingly crucial throughout the software industry, as well as the Open Source community, as a nonproprietary method for storing and exchanging complex data," said Brian Behlendorf, President of the Apache Software Foundation and Founder of Collab.Net. "Building a solid reference suite of applications and libraries for managing XML will help ensure consistancy of implementation between free and commercial software, and reassure developers that XML is a reliable choice for building applications upon."

" will advance the development and deployment of XML and XSL standards, and demonstrate the power of these technologies on both Web server- and client-side environments. In addition, will provide a robust set of XML- and XSL-related libraries and applications within an industry-wide, peer-based Open Source development process."
