XML Editor Features

XMLBlueprint has an extensive range of XML editing features, such as:

  • Context-Sensitive XML Helpers, based on XSD (XML Schema), DTD, and Relax NG Schema, for element names, attribute names and attribute values. Closing tags are automatically added. An options dialog lets you specify how XMLBlueprint should behave.
  • XML Refactoring helps you change the structure of your xml documents. Sometimes a simple find/replace of text is not powerful enough to make subtle changes in your XML Document. For instance, if want to change all <p> elements into <div> elements you cannot globally replace "p" into "div" because this would also change text such as "simple" into "simdivle". Nor could you change <p> into <div> because then the </p> would still remain. It's much faster to use the XML editor's refactoring functions for this type of changes.
  • The XML Formatter lets you indent text, split long lines, remove whitespace, handle empty elements, format attributes. You can specify how XMLBlueprint should format your xml file. For instance, what to do with empty elements and where to place attributes and text. XMLBlueprint correctly handles whitespacing (the xml:space attribute), and you can override this behavior for specific elements.
  • Folding simplifies working with large XML documents.
  • Syntax Coloring is supported for XML documents, but also for HTML, CSS, Java and JavaScript files. You can customize the text colors and the background colors.

XML Validation

  • Validate XML against XSD (XML Schema), DTD, Relax NG Schema, and Schematron. XMLBLueprint provides wizards to associate your XML Document with a DTD, Relax NG schema or XML Schema.
  • XML Catalogs lets you redirect schemas on the Internet to your local computer, which makes validating your XML files mush faster and more reliable.
  • Supported Processors: Xerces, MSXML and Jing.

XSLT Editor and XPath

  • Context-Sensitive XSLT Helpers.
  • Run your XSLT Stylesheet with your choice of XSLT processor and view the output.
  • XPath support with Syntax Coloring and Error Indication.
  • Supports XSLT 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 and XPath 1.0, 2.0, 3.0.

XML Tools
