The BID software was designed to apply business rules to your email traffic. Business information can come from business applications, monitoring applications, or normal users requesting or providing data. The goal of the BID tool is to automate the dispatching of this information and to join a business-case with a responsible receiver. A receiver can be a human being or another BID server customized for a special business-case. The BID server was designed as a generic server using plugins to serve specific business-rules.
Berkeley DB XML is a native XML database engine for use within your product. Made available as a C++ library with language bindings for Java, Perl, Python, PHP, and Tcl, it integrates directly into your application (it is not a standalone database server). It provides XQuery access into a database of document containers. XML documents are stored and indexed in their native format using Berkeley DB as the transactional database engine.
