RE: XSLT Editor? Help Please (from a newbie)
Im a big fan of both jEdit (open source, so its free, and its got a very good and active dev community... http://www.jedit.org ) as well as Eclipse (IBM's open source editor, http://www.eclipse.org ) with the XMLBuddy Pro add in ($35, http://www.xmlbuddy.com ). XMLBuddy Pro, from what I remember, has pretty decent Schema/XSLT integration with some pretty cool features. However, both need to be configured to take advantage of all they have to offer. It really depends on your skill level and understanding of how editors of this nature are set up as to whether or not these solutions will work for you. If you are a newbie to both XSLT and coding in general then these probably are not the answer. But I am confident there are plenty of other list members who can stear you down the editor road with ease but you may need to be patient while you get the responses, as this list is truly global and as such will take a good 24 hours a to get a good set of data to run with. Best of luck! <M:D/> -----Original Message----- From: Jarrell R.

Help Please (from a newbie) Hey everyone, - I'm a newbie to XSLT ...and am trying to learn. Can you help? *** What do you use as an editor for your XSLT documents. *** - I'm trying to find a software tool...where a user can generate a prelimnary, generic XSLT file based on the format of an XSD file (or XML file)...that's fairly cheap in price. - I recently bought XMLSpy Home Edition...and was impressed by its ability to help a user create an XML Schema (XSD) file, and the XML file itself....but was sorely dissappointed when it came to creating an XSLT output file. The answer from the helpdesk was that users of XMLSpy Home must manually code their XSLT documents - and that there's more available in the Professional Version (The jump to XMLSpy Professional is about $450). - XMLSpy also has Stylevision that will help form (or map) XSLT documents...but the purchase price is just under $400. However, not wanting to go with a $400 jump ....I've been looking elsewhere: - I've looked at: -- XSLMaker ($349), -- Contivo ($199), -- EZxslt ($129), -- Stylus Studio ($395), -- Saxon (Unk price for professional version), -- Treebeard, -- Cocoon, -- Komodo and Visual XSLT have cheaper end, educational version... ...and others. - I've tried GNU, Oreilly XML, Surgeforge.net... - The best tool I've found is Notetab (see www.notetab.com) , with the free XSLT clip library...but it is still a highly, manual process.. - Do you have any recommendations? ...on good, cheaper-end software tool....?
