Dialog Launches Dialog API

Dialog, a Thomson business, announced the launch of its Dialog Application Programming Interface (API), a Web Service that enables Dialog's content collection and search engine to be integrated transparently into Web sites, enterprise portals, corporate intranets and extranets, software applications, and other interactive services. The company says that the Dialog API technology is an important step in providing truly integrated information solutions. Dialog is showcasing the Dialog API and its other enterprise information solutions at this week's Online Information 2003 in London.

Dialog API is designed for Web site developers, software programmers, enterprise information managers, and others to integrate slices of the more than 14 terabytes of premium contentóa continuously updated electronic warehouse of news, business intelligence, current and archived journal articles, patents, and research across an array of industries and topics - along with the Dialog search engine that allows users to pinpoint the specific documents they need within the content sets.

Dialog API is based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) and incorporates Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), an XML-based communication standard widely used in IT infrastructures. The use of XML and SOAP enables the Dialog API service to be "application agnostic" and "platform independent," meaning that Dialog documents and the search engine can be incorporated into Web sites and networks regardless of the platform those downstream services use. XML also offers additional flexibility to integrate documents into applications in a range of format options (i.e., PDF, RTF, HTML, and others) that best fit the architecture of the site or network repackaging the Dialog content.
