Altova offers seamless integration between XMLSpy and Eclipse via a free integration module, giving developers all the advanced XML editing features, debuggers, and wizards they need, directly inside the Eclipse IDE.
XMLSpy provides the specialized functionality for working with XML and complimentary technologies that's not available in Eclipse alone.
The XMLSpy Eclipse integration module is available free-of-charge for both the XMLSpy Enterprise Edition and XMLSpy Professional Edition, and can be downloaded from the XMLSpy download page. Please note: The integration module can also be used to integrate the XML editor in Visual Studio (VS).
When you work with XMLSpy in Eclipse, you'll have seamless access to all the powerful functionality of the XML editor, including the revolutionary SmartFix XML validator with auto-correction, relational database integration, program code generation, and more. The text and graphical editing views simplify the creation, editing, and debugging of XML-related documents, streamlining your development process.
In addition to working with XML-based technologies including XBRL and Open XML using the Eclipse XML Editor, you will have access to powerful tools that support complimentary technologies such as HTML5, CSS3, JSON, Avro, and even EPUB. In addition, XMLSpy is the only XML editor that includes support for generating charts and graphs based on XML data.
Integration with XMLSpy lets you use the world’s leading XSD editor - which supports both XML Schema 1.0 and XML Schema 1.1 - in Eclipse. The graphical XML Schema view provides an easy-to-use, visual interface for designing, generating, converting, documenting, and validating XML Schemas.
XMLSpy will generate an XML Schema based on sample XML instance(s) or a relational database structure. And the reverse is supported as well - it's easy to generate a sample XML instance or database based on an XSD.
Schema-based program code generation in Java and other languages is also supported.
XMLSpy has built-in knowledge of XPath, XSLT, and XQuery syntax with robust support for versions 1.0, 2.0, and 3.0 of the standards. Working with these technologies in XMLSpy gives Eclipse users specialized functionality including XPath auto-completion, a multi-tabbed XPath Analyzer window, intelligent XSLT and XQuery editing, and powerful debuggers and profilers.
Advanced tools in XMLSpy include:
