Altova SchemaAgent 2024


Home Prev Top Next

Altova SchemaAgent 2024 is an Altova technology that enables you to manage multiple schemas and build relationships between W3C XML schemas from within a graphical user interface. SchemaAgent also provides a display of relationships between Altova MapForce design (.mfd) files and their associated XML schemas or instances. You can also view and modify relationships and dependencies for XSLT stylesheets and WSDL files.


Altova's SchemaAgent technology consists of two components:


A SchemaAgent server serves supported files to one or more SchemaAgent Clients on the network. The server can be installed as a local server together with SchemaAgent Client, as an independent Altova SchemaAgent Server installation, or run as a service.

The SchemaAgent Client is an application with a graphical user interface that provides access to the files served by a SchemaAgent server. Using standard GUI mechanisms, such as copy-and-paste and drag-and-drop, you can easily build relationships between the served files and make large-scale changes—such as in path references—across multiple files.


SchemaAgent technology can also be used in Altova XMLSpy® Editor. XMLSpy communicates via SchemaAgent Client with either LocalServer or SchemaAgent Server.


SchemaAgent in the Altova product range

Both SchemaAgent Server and SchemaAgent Client are to be downloaded separately from the SchemaAgent download page at the Altova website and installed separately. SchemaAgent Server is available free of charge, whereas SchemaAgent Client requires a license that must be purchased from Altova.


The Altova® MissionKit™ 2024 Enterprise Edition includes the SchemaAgent product and a license key for it. The SchemaAgent Server application, however, is not included as part of the Altova® MissionKit™ 2024 packages, and must be downloaded from the SchemaAgent download page at the Altova website.


In order to use SchemaAgent with XMLSpy, SchemaAgent Client must be installed on the same machine as XMLSpy. SchemaAgent Server can be installed anywhere on the network. XMLSpy Enterprise Edition and XMLSpy Professional Edition (when purchased independently of Altova® MissionKit™ 2024 applications) can both use SchemaAgent.


Note:Any SchemaAgent or SchemaAgent-related product from Altova (including XMLSpy) starting with Version 2005 release 3 is not compatible with versions of SchemaAgent or SchemaAgent-related products previous to it.
