Remote Editing over FTP, HTTP/WebDAV and HTTPS/WebDAV

FTP & WebDAV Support

XSLT Editor

oXygen supports remote editing, using the FTP/SFTP and WebDAV protocols. The remote files can be added to the project and can be subject to XSLT and XSL-FO transformations.

The WebDAV access is implemented using the Slide package of the Apache Software Foundation. The FTP part is using passive access to the FTP servers. Make sure the server you are trying to connect to is supporting passive connections.

The FTP/SFTP/WebDAV capabilities have been extensively tested with various servers running on Windows (IIS), Mac OS X and Linux (Apache).


If you want to access a WebDAV repository across an insecure network oXygen allows you to load and save the documents using the HTTPS protocol (if the server understands this protocol) so that any data exchange with the WebDAV server is encrypted.

" 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."
