Date: 07 Jun 2005 05:26 PM
The Stylus Studio User's Guide describes how to use Stylus Studio to develop XML applications. It is now available as a free PDF download (11.6MB) at: http://www.stylusstudio.com/doc/UserGuide63.pdf

Table of Contents:

* Chapter 1, "Getting Started with Stylus StudioŽ," provides step-by-step instructions for editing an XML document, applying a stylesheet, creating a dynamic Web page, debugging stylesheets and Java files, and mapping an XML document with one schema to an XML document with another schema.

* Chapter 2, "Editing and Querying XML," describes how to update an XML
document in the text, tree, schema, and grid views of the XML editor. It also provides information about how to query documents and handle query results.

* Chapter 3, "Converting Non-XML Files to XML," describes how to use the Stylus Studio Convert to XML module to create converters that allow you to open any flat file (.txt, binary, or EDI, for example) as an XML document.

* Chapter 4, "Working with XSLT," includes a tutorial for using XSLT and understanding how XSLT works. It provides information and instructions for using the XSLT editor to create, modify, and apply stylesheets. It also contains reference information for the various XSLT instructions you can specify in a stylesheet.

* Chapter 5, "Creating XSLT Using the XSLT Mapper," describes how to use the Stylus Studio XML mapper. The XML mapper generates a stylesheet for transforming an XML document that uses one schema to an XML document that uses another schema.

* Chapter 6, "Debugging Stylesheets," discusses how to use the Stylus Studio debugging features.

* Chapter 7, "Defining XML Schemas," provides information and instructions for creating and editing DTDs and XML Schema documents.

* Chapter 8, "Defining Document Type Definitions" covers DTD basics and the use of the Stylus Studio DTD editor.

* Chapter 9, "Writing XPath Expressions," includes complete information about how to define a query, which must be an XPath expression. In addition to explicitly running a query on an XML document, you specify queries as the values of select and match attributes in stylesheets.

* Chapter 10, "Working with XQuery in Stylus Studio," describes how to work with XQuery in Stylus Studio, including how to use the XQuery debugger.

* Chapter 11, "Composing Web Service Calls," describes how to design, compose, and test a Web service call without writing any code, and how to use the Web service calls you create elsewhere in Stylus Studio.

* Chapter 12, "Accessing Relational Data as XML," describes how to use Stylus Studio to connect to a relational database, and how to query and update relational data.

* Chapter 13, "Extending Stylus Studio," provides a description of advanced Stylus Studio features, including information about using the Stylus Studio custom document wizard.
