Open XML Validation Architecture

Stylus Studio® X16 XML includes a built-in XML validator, and also fully supports industry XML components commonly used by developers, including: MSXML 4.0 SAX, MSXML 4.0 DOM, MSXML 6.0, Microsoft .NET XML validator (System.XML), Xerces-J 2.5.1, XSV 2.6, and many other XML validators.

Validate XML

Our Open XML Parsing & XML Validation Architecture guarantees development support for the same XML processor and/or XML validator that you use in your production environment. Simply click on the "Validate" button (the green checkmark in the preceding illustration), specify which validator you want to use, and Stylus Studio® displays the results in the Status window.

Accept No Substitute

Stylus Studio®'s Open XML Parsing & XML Validation Architecture and production environment is a critical component in a world-class XML editor, one that can make the difference between a project's success and its failure. Here's why:

  • Avoid Abnormal Program Behavior: Every XML processor and XML validator has its idiosyncrasies, either as a result of a software bug or due to lack of clarity in an XML standard's specification. Using different validators and parsers in development and deployment environments systematically introduces an element of abnormal program behavior, creating a potential mine-field of hidden bugs, each one difficult to track down and yielding potentially disasterous results.
  • Gain Greater Developer Productivity: Using the award-winning XML tools in Stylus Studio® X16 XML, it's easy to check the results with either our built-in XML parser and XML Validator, or any other XML processing component. This level of flexibility allows you to isolate potential problems in the development stage rather then the deployment stage when it is too late.

Easily Specify Third-Party XML Validators & XML Validation Engines

In addition to our built-in Stylus Studio® XML Validator, we include several popular XML processing components as an added convenience, including MS XML 4.0 DOM validator, MS XML SAX 4.0 validator, Xerces-J 2.5.1, XSV 2.6, and Microsoft .NET XML Validator (System.XML). As you can see from the following illustration, it's quite simple to add others using Stylus Studio®'s Custom Validation Engines feature.

Using an XML Validator

Stylus Studio® X16 XML's Open XML Parsing & XML Validation Architecture is a requirement for non-trivial XML development, honoring the underlying XML theme of working toward true openess and interoperability.
