Why Choose Stylus Studio 6 XML Enterprise Edition?
Stylus Studio 6 XML Enterprise Edition is the most powerful and productive XML IDE for developing, debugging and deploying advanced XML applications. Here are just a few of benefits that make it the tool of choice for thousands of IT professionals worldwide:
* Java Code Generation: Now you can generate Java code for your XQuery and XSLT stylesheets and deploy that code to a live production server or application. Stylus Studio's Java Code Generator captures the settings specified in the XQuery and XSLT scenarios - your choice of XML processor, parameters, input/output files, and post processing options, for example - and reflects them in the generated Java code.
* Updated W3C XQuery Compliance: Stylus Studio is the first XML IDE to fully support the W3C XQuery working draft of April 2005, taking the lead on the path of innovation to this critical emerging data integration technology.
* New XML Schema Productivity Tools: Generate sample XML fragments from XML Schema components. Create XML Schema documentation with a familiar JavaDoc-like layout. Perform XML Schema-based output validation of XSLT or XQuery transformations. These and many more usability enhancements further enhance Stylus Studio's position as the most innovative XML Schema Tool for XML data modeling.
* XML File Explorer Window: The new XML File Explorer window provides a handy way for developers to manage files in Stylus Studio and perform other basic file-oriented operations (delete, copy, and rename, for example). You can also easily convert files by dragging the file you want to convert onto any built-in or user-defined adapters. A new Auto-Backup feature optionally creates backup files of your documents when you save them.
* XML Diff Text View: XML Differencing is even easier now with a third way to view differences in XML documents. In addition to the Split View - Tree tab and the Merged tab, you can now view two documents side-by-side in plain text on the Split View - Text tab.
* Canonical XML Converter: Convert XML into canonical form with a single mouse click - just one of the many new XML editing utilities in the Stylus Studio XML Editor.
* XML Spell Checker: Admit it, there's a reason you didn't become a marketing copywriter; but now you can impress your colleagues with your brilliant command of the English language with the Stylus Studio XML Spell Checker!
* EDIFACT to XML Schema Conversions: Simplify EDIFACT data integration projects with a new utility for generating XML Schema from EDIFACT messages, fully integrated with the XML Schema Editor.
* JAXB Support: Generate Java-XML bindings from your XML Schemas using the Java API for XML Binding (JAXB) � fully integrated with the Java IDE and XML Schema Editor.
