Visual XSLT-based Design and Generation
XSLT is a key component in the family of XML technologies. Its primary role is to separate content from presentation on the Web and also in other formats such as PDF, RTF, and Word (Open XML). However, XSLT syntax can be overwhelmingly complex. Even experienced XSLT developers tend to rely on sophisticated XSLT editors and XSLT debuggers, like those available in XMLSpy, for entry-helpers, auto-completion, testing and troubleshooting, etc.
StyleVision offers some respite from the intricacies of end-to-end XML development. XSLT design is supported through a unique, drag-and-drop design interface. The corresponding XSLT 1.0 or 2.0 code for your design is automatically created behind the scenes and can be viewed or saved at any time to automate publication of XML, database, and XBRL data in custom applications.
StyleVision’s rich XSLT design and generation capabilities can also be seamlessly leveraged from the market-leading integrated development environments, Eclipse and Microsoft® Visual Studio®.
XSLT Stylesheet Generation
Designing XSLT stylesheets in StyleVision is a highly flexible, visual drag-and-drop process facilitated by intelligent menus and entry helper windows. Advanced stylesheet functions help you define conditional templates, auto-calculations, rich input formatting, and more.
StyleVision stylesheet designs can be based on one or multiple XML Schema, DTD, XBRL, and database source(s), and can even combine data from multiple source types. Global Resources are also supported.
Each design you create simultaneously produces standards-conformant XSLT and XSL:FO stylesheets, the corresponding output in HTML, RTF, PDF, Word, and an Authentic enterprise form.
XPath Made Easy
XPath is an integral part of any XSLT stylesheet. In addition to XPath expressions auto-generated to implement style rules based on your design, StyleVision provides intelligent support for creating XPath 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 expressions to perform auto-calculations, define conditional templates, declare variables, and specify advanced styling rules. You can even define and save XPath expressions as part of a StyleVision design project for easy re-use.
The intelligent Edit XPath Expression dialog features builder mode with syntax coloring, editing guidance, and detailed error messages, as well as Evaluator mode for checking the result of the expression as you type, making composing and testing expressions infinitely easier compared to manual coding.
