Re: Re: XML / XSL Editors
Well, uptil now i've been testing XMLSpy, oXygen and Exchanger. Here's my toughts and request for comments: XMLSpy is realy a heavy-weight, it seems to do everything. Too many things... And it's a lot expensive than the others, so the choice is to buy one XMLSpy or 4/5 of the others... And i really don't like mainstream software, reflexes of my revolutionary youth :) I was tending to oXygen due to the positive mentions here on list. It seems very good from the developer point of view, i really like that trang thing, specially from learning the various languages by converting one into another. HOWEVER it seems not so good from the non-XSL-expert data-entry point of view. There's only the Tree Editor that seems to me both confusing and hard to work. And this data-entry thing is important. Exchanger seems to be a lot better. I really like the way one can create types (XML/Schema pieces) and then edit them. That's that what i had in mind since the beggining, and i didn4t find the way to do it in the other editors (not that don't exist, i just couldn't find it). And i really like that Outliner/Editor/Tree Viewer for the data entry thing. It seems to me a good balance beteween development capabilities and data-entry facilities. So i'll like to ear some comments from you guys, besides "then go with Exchanger if you liked it", mainly because i ddidn4t test *that* much and i'm probably missing something around the way... Thanks, and excuse the bad english...
