Lab Test: A review of the Stylus Studio XML editor
(note: this is an automated translation)
The main edition is Stylus Studio Professional Edition. Furthermore there is a home-version that is released to be sure only for non-commercial purposes. The price of 400 Euros indicates that Stylus studio addresses itself to Higher end-user.
Accordingly Stylus studio shines above all with Mapping-possibilities. An all attitude feature is the automatic conversion of EDI to XML. Also the database-Mapping of relational data sources goes very comfortably of the hand.
For XML schemas, WSDL and XSLT, Stylus studio offers visual editors. Stylus Studio simplifies working with complex documents, increasing productivity. They can edit both the underlying documents or change also the Mapping and the conversion of XML with graphic representations.
In larger projects, the integrated version administration is expressed practically. The project administration removes Stylus studio above all of the more favorable competitors.
A few is restricted Stylus studio what concerns Templates and the support for other XML-languages. Neither SVG nor MathML directly are bound. Also the support of RelaxNG is not available.
Result. Stylus studio is a XML-editor for the professional use. It is recommended above all if one of the Mapping-functions, visual XML designers or the source control integration is required. If this is the case, then the price is no hindrance.
