Quick Assist and Quick Fix Support
Working with large stylesheets becomes more and more difficult as their
complexity increases. oXygen helps you reorganize them by allowing you to easily
extract sections from templates, move some XSLT components to other stylesheets,
rename templates and variables, and search references and occurrences in the project
files. Some operations that imply modifications to multiple files display a preview
window that shows the exact changes that will be performed in each file.
XSLT Refactoring Actions
oXygen helps you improve code readability of an XSLT
stylesheet and reduce its complexity using refactoring actions. For example, you
can use the Extract template action to break a long template into
smaller templates. Similarly, you can refactor long XPath expressions by
extracting small sub-expressions as local/global variables or parameters. Also, if
you want to move one or more XSLT components (templates or functions) to another
stylesheet oXygen helps you to refactor your stylesheet.
Rename XSLT Occurrences
You can rename XSLT components (variables, templates,
functions, etc.) and you have full control over all changes using a Diff view,
which allows you to inspect and review the document edits before accepting them.
The scope of the edits can be the current file, the Project, the Master Files, or another scope that you
Search XSLT References/Declarations
This search is performed for any XSLT component that has
references or declarations (variables, functions, named templates, attribute sets,
etc.) The search scope can be the current file, the Project, the Master Files, or a custom scope defined by
Also, all the occurrences of an XSL component are
highlighted in the text when you place the caret near the component name.
The Component Dependencies view displays a tree of component dependencies,
starting with a specified component. For example, you can quickly see where an
XSLT template is called from, and if called from other named templates you can
expand it further to see its dependencies.
oXygen offers quick fixes for errors that appear during XSLT development.
Using the Quick Fix support you can resolve problems, such as missing templates,
misspelled template names, missing functions, or references to an undeclared
variable or parameter.
