Validating XSLT Stylesheets with Custom Engines

If you need to validate an XSLT stylesheet with a validation engine that is different from the built-in engine, you can configure external engines as custom XSLT validation engines in the Oxygen XML Editor plugin preferences. After a custom validation engine is properly configured, it can be applied on the current document by selecting it from the list of custom validation engines in the Validation toolbar drop-down menu. The document is validated against the schema declared in the document.

By default, there are two validators that are configured for XSLT stylesheets:

  • MSXML 4.0 - included in Oxygen XML Editor plugin (Windows edition). It is associated to the XSL Editor type in Preferences page.
  • MSXML.NET - included in Oxygen XML Editor plugin (Windows edition). It is associated to the XSL Editor type in Preferences page.
