Java™ Web Start - oXygen XML Editor 17.0

The editor can be installed on your Intranet/Internet web server, becoming accessible to all the users from your organisation. The benefits are: simplified installation - just one click - and automatic upgrade.

The total size of the Java Web Start Bundle is about 38 MB. If the editor is run for the first time, the Java Web Start will download the entire package ; the next time it will check only for modified jar files (an upgrade) and eventually download them. If this is not the case, the application will start immediately.

Press "Start" when the Java™ Web Start finishes the download.

The download time on a 256kbps connection is about 20 minutes.

  • Please configure your JWS not to ask for desktop integration (File / Preferences / Shortcuts), otherwise it will show up a dialog in the same time with the oXygen license registration dialog leading to a blocking situation.
  • Due to a Java Web Start implementation problem, it is possible that the program will exit prematurely. The workaround is to check the option "Show Java Console" in the Java Web Start management application.

" oXygen XML Editor is the premier text editor for XML geeks, and an indispensable tool for O'Reilly's Production group. My team uses oXygen XML Editor for everything from simple XML editing to Schema validation and XSLT transformations. The digital production staff especially loves oXygen's built-in EPUB support, which eliminates a great deal of the grunt work that is usually entailed in editing EPUB files. The more we use oXygen, the more realize what a powerful tool it can be in digital and XML-based workflows."
