Objective Systems is pleased to announce a new major release (version 2.6) of our ASN2TXT product. ASN2TXT translates data from ASN.1 encoded binary formats (BER, DER, CER, PER, and UPER) to textual formats such as XML, JSON, or Comma-separated value (CSV). The application allows ASN.1 schemas to be applied to data at run-time rather than having to first generate and compile code in some programming language.
The key new feature in the release is the addition of a Document Object Model (DOM) capability for users of the DLL. Users can decode ASN.1 binary into a DOM tree format where values can be altered prior to serialization into an output format. These alterations can be in the form of changing node values, adding additional nodes, or removing nodes from the tree. The capability also exists to locate nodes in the tree using standard XML Path (XPath) expressions.
In addition to the new DOM feature, we have also added support for ISO 8601 date/time types as well as interfaces that allow the DLL to be used in C and C# .NET applications.
A free, 30-day evaluation version of the product may be downloaded from the ASN2TXT product page by clicking the “Download” button at the bottom of the page.
