XINS is a technology used to define, create, and invoke remote APIs. XINS is specification-oriented. When API specifications are written (in XML), XINS will transform them to HTML-based documentation and Java code for both the client-side and the server-side. The communication is based on HTTP. XINS competes with the complex SOAP technology. Main design goals include simplicity, scalability, and testability. XINS is not only a specification technology, but also an application development framework. It offers transaction logging, unique log documentation, and active code generation.


A new target has been added to execute code coverage with EMMA. If no environment is specified, the test form is generated with a text field for the location of the API. The specdocs have been improved with favicon, meta information, better CSS, and XHTML. This release also includes many bugfixes and small improvements.
