What was new in oXygen XML Editor 8.2

Related Versions:

May 7th, 2007

There are changes in:

Native XML Database support

XQuery Debugger Support

oXygen XML Editor brought the first XQuery debugger against a native XML database allowing users of the MarkLogic 3.2 (or higher) database to debug their XQuery code based on the MarkLogic Server 3.2 (or higher) XQuery debugging API.

Support for the Native XML Storage for Oracle

In addition to organizing the XML data in tables, Oracle offers a logical grouping of the XML resources in collections. You can open and edit documents using the database explorer available in the database perspective. The resources subtree is found under the node "XML Repository".

Limit the Number of Nodes Displayed in a Very Large Container

An Oracle XML container or a Tamino one can have millions of resources. In order to improve the performance of browsing a container the maximum number of nodes displayed in such a container in the Database Explorer view is limited to a configurable value. The nodes set can be browsed with Up and Down buttons.

Type Selection for the Containers on Berkeley DB

You can choose the type of the containers you want to create from the database browser. There are supported both the "Wholedoc" type containers and the "Node" type containers.

Delete XML instances from a Tamino doctype

The XML instances stored in a Tamino doctype can be deleted.

Support for the Tamino System Collection

Tamino system collections can be browsed using the database explorer.

Filter XML instances of a Tamino doctype

An XQuery predicate can be set as filter for the XML instances of a Tamino doctype presented in Database Explorer view.

Support for output parameters in stored procedures

Output parameters are supported for stored procedures executed on a database of type IBM DB2, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL.

ISO Schematron support

Editing ISO Schematron Schemas   [read more...]

oXygen has a Schematron editor, which automatically detects that the edited Schematron schema is ISO Schematron, from the namespace. It offers a Content Completion Assistant with documentation for the ISO Schematron elements, attributes, and values, and also features continuous validation.

Editing Support for Embedded ISO Schematron Rules in XML Schema   [read more...]

When editing XML Schemas oXygen offers inside xs:annotation/xs:appinfo ISO Schematron proposals through the Content Completion Assistant, thus allowing easier editing of Schematron embedded rules.

Validating XML Documents Against ISO Schematron   [read more...]

The validation support from oXygen handles validation against ISO Schematron schemas. This includes validation on request, continuous validation and batch validation.

Validating XML Document Against ISO Schematron embedded rules   [read more...]

ISO Schematron rules can be embedded in other schemas. oXygen offers validation against ISO Schematron rules embedded in Relax NG schemas or in XML Schemas.

Support for Abstract Patterns and Included ISO Schematron Schemas   [read more...]

oXygen handles also ISO Schematron schemas that contain abstract patterns or references to other ISO Schematron files through sch:include. There is a limitation on schema validation that checks the document as it is, without expanding the includes.


Validation Scenarios   [read more...]

Validation scenarios are a very powerful feature and they solve a number of important issues when working with XML and XML-related technologies. They allow working with modules and performing multiple validations in one action.

By default the validation of a document is done by using a processor (XML parser, XSLT transformer, XQuery engine, etc.) to analyze the current file. The validation scenario allows to specify a set of files to validate and for each file what processor to use and whether or not to perform continuous validation. Thus if you work on a module you can set the validation on the master file, the file that refers that module. Also you can perform multiple validations with different processors or on different files.

Editor Improvements

Large File Viewer   [read more...]

Very large files (larger than a Gigabyte) that cannot be opened in the editor panel can be viewed in the Large File Viewer without loading the file in the memory. The Viewer is available from the Tools menu.

Multi-line Find/Replace   [read more...]

The Find/Replace is enhanced with multi-line capabilities. Both the find and the replace expressions can cover multiple lines of the document. This together with the regular expressions and XPath filtering support allow powerful changes to be applied on the document content.

The Attribute Displayed in the Outline View Is Configurable

The Outline view presents a tree structure of the document updated in real time as you edit your file. It presents also some information from the attributes or from the text content for each element. oXygen has a priority list with attribute names and uses that to determine what attribute to present instead of presenting the first attribute. This allows a better insight of the document structure from the Outliner as you can easily see the relevant information.

Shows the XPath of the current element

The XPath panel and the XPath Builder view can show the XPath that matches the element at the current caret position. The expression is updated as you move the caret through the document. For instance, if you are inside a title inside a section inside article you will see "article/section/title" and executing that will show in the XPath results panel all the first level sections titles from your article. The XPath expression is useful also to give you a quick hint of your position in the document.

Option to Open the XML Files Directly into the Grid Editing Mode

You can specify the default opening mode for the XML files: Text or Grid. Thus if you are mainly working with data files that are better suited for a table layout you can open them directly in the Grid editing mode.

Improvements for the WSDL SOAP Analyzer

The analyzer dialog is docked in the editor user interface. You can move it wherever you consider to be handier. The requests are associated with the port numbers, so if you change the port, the request for that port is set into the analyzer. Both the request and the response can be pretty-printed using an action from the contextual menu.

Access Resources on FTP / SFTP / WebDAV Servers from the Eclipse Plugin

The Eclipse plugin distribution of oXygen is also able to browse FTP / SFTP / WebDAV servers and open and save files on such servers.

Support for OASIS XML Catalogs version 1.1

The latest version of the OASIS XML Catalogs specification is supported. Catalog elements such as systemIdSuffix and uriSuffix are recognized in XML catalog files. This makes possible the resolution of relative locations.

Option for browsing application bundles as directories on Mac OS X

The option allows browsing application bundles as directories on Mac OS X.


Pretty-Print JavaScript Files

The format and indent action can be applied on JavaScript files. There are several options to control the formatting, such as preserving or removing empty lines, and the position of the start curly bracket.

Pretty-print for HTML documents handles scripts and styles   [read more...]

Usually an HTML document contains scripting and style information. The format and indent operation that applies to HTML text content is not suitable for formatting scripts and CSS styles. Therefore oXygen detects these sections and automatically pretty-prints the embedded JavaScript and CSS sections using the JavaScript and CSS formatting options.

Component Updates

Updated Saxon 8 to version

The Saxon 8 XSLT and XQuery processor was updated to the latest version: Both Saxon 8 Basic and Schema Aware versions are supported, including XSLT 2.0 and XQuery debugging and profiling and also schema validation (for the Schema Aware version you need a separate license from Saxonica).

Updated the Apache FOP transformer to version 0.93

The XSL-FO transformer from Apache was updated to the latest version: 0.93. Note for the TEI users: Because the TEI FO stylesheets are not compatible with the latest FOP, it is recommended to download and configure the FOP version 0.20.5 as an external FO processor and then change the transformation scenarios to use it.

Updated the DocBook XML Schemas to Version 5.0CR3

The DocBook XML schemas were updated to the latest version: 5.0CR3.

Updated the DocBook XSL stylesheets to version 1.71.1

The DocBook XSL stylesheets were updated to the latest version: 1.71.1.

Updated the Apache XML Security library to version 1.4.0

The XML Security library from Apache was updated to the latest version: 1.4.0.

Updated the SVNKit library to version 1.1.2

The SVNKit library used in the SVN Client was updated to the latest version: 1.1.2.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
