"In the past software developers, Website builders and business analysts spent hours locating Web services, reviewing complex XML documents and writing code in order to understand a Web service's behavior," said Bob Brauer, president and CEO of StrikeIron. "By offering this free downloadable tool users will be able to quickly take advantage of the rapidly increasing number of Web services available throughout the world."

The Premium Analyzer is a significantly enhanced version of the online Analyzer available on the StrikeIron Web Services Business Network. The Premium Analyzer provides integrated access to StrikeIron's Web Services Marketplace allowing users to work with the broadest range of commercially available external Web services to enhance their SOA implementations, applications and Web sites with live, real-time data and extended functionality.
