OASIS Catalog Support


XML Schema and DTD are the foundation of any well-formed XML document. Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite's features for working with OASIS catalogs allow you to incorporate any vendor's catalog — or one of your own — in your XML, making writing correct and robust XML easier than ever.

Choose from Dozens of OASIS Standard Catalogs Installed with Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite

Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite's multi-faceted OASIS Catalog support gives you out-of-the-box access to industry-standard XML schemas and DTDs from the W3C, Sun, Microsoft, and many others. Taking advantage of OASIS-standard catalogs, published by dozens of technology vendors and organizations, is as easy as selecting File > Open from the Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite menu, as shown in the following illustration. With point-and-click ease, you can access schemas for XHTML, WML, CML, DocBook, and dozens of (complimentary and competing) Web services standards.

Catalog Wizards

Want to roll your own? Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite has two Catalog Wizards. These Wizards, shown in the following illustration, allow you to create a user-defined catalog, or to convert a catalog in text format to XML.

Wizards for User-Defined and Text Catalogs

User-Defined Catalog Wizard

The Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite User-Defined Catalog Wizard, shown in the following illustration, lets you create your own catalog from one or more existing catalog sources.

Create Your Own Catalogs Based on Others

The catalogs you build, like the one shown in the following illustration, can optionally be added to the current project at the time you create them.

Create Your Own Catalogs Based on Others

If you have existing text-mode catalogs in the SGML or TR 9401 (SOCAT) syntax, they can be used without conversion to XML — Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite, on-the-fly, performs an in-memory conversion of those catalog formats. Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite also transparently supports several older variants of catalogs, such as the XMLCatalog and XCatalog formats.

Add Catalogs to Your Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite Projects

Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite has complete support for catalogs at the Project level — as shown in the following illustration, you can easily add the Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite Base Catalog or any User-defined catalog to your projects. And support isn't limited to a single catalog per project, as it is with some editors. With Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite, you can include as many catalogs as you need. And you can define any XML document as a catalog in the context of a given Project.

Add Catalogs to Projects

Stylus Studio® X16 XML Enterprise Suite's integrated support for OASIS-standard catalogs lets you easily leverage XML Schemas and DTDs from dozens of industry vendors; or you can create your own catalog using either of two Catalog Wizards.
