Build 591c


The following enhancements are available in Build 591c:

  • A new URI option for the EDI adapter, setup=, allows you to exclude UNA sections from EDI converted from XML. By default, this option is set to yes, which includes UNA sections in the generated EDI. To exclude UNA sections, set setup=no.
  • A new URI option for the EDI adapter, count=, allows you to override segment count limits that are otherwise enforced by the EDI specification. By default, this option is set to yes, and segments are counted. To ingore segment counts, set count=no.

Bug Fixes

Stylus Studio® 2006 Release 2 Build 591c includes fixes for the following known bugs:

  • XQuery
    • Stylus Studio would sometimes crash when attempting to execute multiple Web service calls from within the same XQuery.
    • If you were using the Saxon XQuery processor, use of Java extensions would sometimes cause silent exceptions in the Output window.
    • Stylus Studio would sometimes crash trying to insert a text node as a child of a document constructor expression.
  • XML Schema
    • Saxon was incorrectly listed as a validation engine for XML Schema.
    • Macros for the XML Schema diagram were not displayed in the Shortcut Keys (Tools > Keyboard) dialog box.
    • Stylus Studio would sometimes crash if you used the XML Schema Diagram to restrict a simpleType.
    • Stylus Studio could not always locate included complexTypes in the XML Schema Diagram.
    • XSDdoc was defined as the default stylesheet for displaying XML Schema documentation; the correct default is XS3P.
    • Displaying the Documenation tab using XSDdoc would sometimes result in an error if you had previously previewed an XSLT stylesheet using the XalanJ processor.
  • Other
    • External DTDs — External DTDs that defined entities using an entity reference did not successfully validate using Stylus Studio's built-in validation engine.

    • Tool Tips — The tool tips, which appear when you first start Stylus Studio, incorrectly referred to the command line executable for the XML Differencing Utility. The correct file name is StylusDiff.exe.
