Convert to XML includes full integration with Stylus Studio's XML adapter framework, enabling users to seamlessly configure non-relational files as data sources for use with Stylus Studio's visual XML mapping tools for XSLT and XQuery.
Advanced XSLT 2.0 Editor and Debugger — Stylus Studio now includes full support for XSLT 2.0 editing, debugging, transformation, validation, and backmapping. Built-in support for XPath 2.0 further solidifies Stylus Studio's leadership in providing the most advanced development environment for XSLT.
Updated XQuery 1.0 Support — Stylus Studio's XQuery Editor, Debugger, Mapper and Performance Profiler tools have been updated to support the latest XQuery 1.0 working draft of July 2004.
XML Schema Editor — Stylus Studio 6 XML Professional Edition features an all-new XML Schema Editor that allows you to visually define advanced XML data models. A contemporary text pane lets you see the XML Schema text Stylus Studio creates for you as you work with the diagram. Both views are kept completely synchronized – changes made in one editor are immediately reflected in the other. Stylus Studio's new XML Schema Editor is a great tool for learning XML Schema.
XML Grid View — Stylus Studio 6 XML Professional Edition features a new XML grid view for editing tabular XML data. The XML grid view provides an intuitive spreadsheet-like interface for working with relational data or any XML document with repeating data structures, addressing a need that frequently arises when developing custom XML data integration applications.
