Stylus Studio 5.3 Adds XML Differencing and Enhanced XML Mapping Tools to Award-Winning XML IDE
Bedford, Mass. June 28, 2004 Stylus Studio (http://www.stylusstudio.com), the industry-leading innovator of tools for XML development and productivity, shipped Release 5.3 of its award-winning XML Integrated Development Environment (XML IDE) today. Stylus Studio Release 5.3, adds a flexible XML differencing utility, significant XML Mapping enhancements, and many usability and performance improvements, solidifying its reputation as the most comprehensive XML IDE on the market.
Stylus Studio Release 5.3 A Boon to XML Developers
"I just purchased Stylus Studio, and it is a really good product," said Doug Domeny, a software analyst for Ektron Inc., an innovator in Web content management and authoring software. "It found some errors in one of my XML schemas that my former XML tool failed to detect, so I'm pleased with its thorough technical competence. Most of my time with XML tools is spent writing XSLT to filter XML or to convert from one XML vocabulary to another, and Stylus Studio's XSLT editing, mapping, and debugging tools save me lots of time and effort. Stylus Studio is an excellent tool for any developer working with XML."
Commenting on the significance of Stylus Studio Release 5.3, Carlo Innocenti, the senior product architect for Stylus Studio said, "XML developers will be highly impressed with the advanced functionality in our new XML differencing tool. And our revamped XML mapping tools are second to none. Stylus Studio is the only XML IDE to fully support round-trip engineering for XSLT- and XQuery-based XML Mapping, providing the most intuitive development support for XML data integration projects. Stylus Studio Release 5.3 is concrete proof of our ongoing commitment to provide the highest quality and most value-priced XML development tools, period."
The powerful new XML differencing utility in Stylus Studio Release 5.3 allows developers to quickly compute and visualize changes between XML documents and directories. The integrated XML Differencing tool supports the following features:

Enhanced XML Mapping
Users benefit from several enhancements to Stylus Studio's visual XML mapping tools for XQuery and XSLT. Chief among the mapping enhancements for Stylus Studio Release 5.3 is a powerful split-screen editing mode that simultaneously displays fully editable views of both the visual XML mapping diagram and the underlying XSLT or XQuery source code. Users can now make live edits to either the source code or the visual XML mapping diagram, and see instantly the effect their changes have without clicking a separate tab or opening another editor. Because Stylus Studio automatically synchronizes the changes to both visual mapping and source code views as you work, this feature is a great way to learn the intricacies of these powerful XML technologies.
See product website for a complete technical description of the updated XML Mapping tools.
