Benefits of Projects

The benefits of organizing your XML files into projects are listed below.

 

Files and URLs can be grouped into folders by common extension or any other criteria.
Batch processing can be applied to specific folders or the project as a whole.
A DTD or XML Schema can be assigned to specific folders, allowing validation of the files in that folder.
XSLT files can be assigned to specific folders, allowing transformations of the XML files in that folder using the assigned XSLT.
The destination folders of XSL transformation files can be specified for the folder as a whole.

 

All the above project settings can be defined using the menu option Project | Project Properties. In the next section, you will create a project using the Project menu. Additionally, the following advanced project features are available:

 

XML files can be placed under source control using the menu option Project | Source control | Add to source control. (Please see the Source Control section in the online help for more information.)
Personal, network and web folders can be added to projects, allowing batch validation.
