Oxygen XML Developer 17.0

May 5, 2015

Oxygen XML Developer version 17 sets the highest standard for XML development. It comes with important functionality updates and focuses on design to make your work not only productive, but also enjoyable.

Retina/HiDPI icons make everything look crisp and beautiful while the graphite color theme gives you a complete new view of Oxygen. Toolbars are configurable down to action level and they put you in full control of your work environment.

Oxygen not only reports errors, it also helps you automatically correct them through the Quick Fix support. The new XML Refactoring tool extends the power of the Find/Replace action across multiple files by applying XML-aware operations through a user-friendly interface.

XML developers can take advantage of the XQuery and embedded XPath formatting feature. They can also use Oxygen XML Developer with the latest versions of MarkLogic and eXist XML databases, Saxon XSLT, XQuery, XML Schema engines, and XML Calabash XProc processor. The SVN client has also been updated to include a variety of improvements and bug fixes.

There are changes in:

XML Quick Fixes

Schematron Quick Fixes

Schematron allows you to enforce business rules on XML documents and to communicate issues in a language the users understand, as the error messages are written by the schema developer rather than being generated by the validation engine. Similar to how a spell checking engine shows possible correct words that should replace a misspelled word, the schema developer can provide one or more possible actions that fix the reported problem. Oxygen presents these actions through the Quick Fix support, allowing users to correct an issue by selecting one of the proposed solutions.

XML Quick Fixes when Validating Against Relax NG Schemas

The Quick Fix support was updated to provide actions for correcting various errors that appear in XML documents validated against Relax NG XML or Compact schemas, such as adding missing attributes, removing invalid elements, and more.

XML Refactoring

XML Refactoring Tool

The XML Refactoring tool assists you with various refactoring tasks that cannot be resolved with a traditional Find/Replace operation. It helps you manage the structure of your XML documents and it includes a variety of operations, such as renaming, deleting, and inserting elements and attributes across a set of files. It is available in the Tools menu, the Project and DITA Maps Manager contextual menu.

Custom XML Refactoring Operations

For more complex projects, if the provided refactoring operations are not sufficient, Oxygen Enterprise edition users can create their own custom refactoring operations and share them with other team members.

User Interface

Customizable Toolbars

The toolbars in Oxygen can now be customized at action level and you can decide the exact set of actions that are presented by each toolbar. Some of the toolbars have also been reorganized to better group related actions.

Graphite Color Theme

If you prefer dark backgrounds, you can use the new graphite color theme or use it as a starting point for setting your preferred colors. You can select it from the Theme drop-down menu found in the Appearance preferences page.

XQuery / XPath

Formatting and Indenting XQuery Documents

XQuery files (version 1.0, 3.0 and XQuery Update 1.0) can be properly pretty printed, producing neater and consistent formatted content.

Formatting and Indenting Embedded XPath Expressions

Online Help Option

A feature has been added to open the help system documentation online. This gives you access to the latest updates to the help documentation and allows you to send feedback through the WebHelp feedback system. If the Use online help option is enabled, pressing F1 while hovering over any part of the interface or selecting Help from the Help menu results in Oxygen attempting to open the online help documentation. Otherwise, the local help documentation is opened in offline mode.

Ignore Whitespaces in the "Find/Replace in Files" Operation

The Ignore extra whitespaces available in the Find/Replace in Files dialog box enables the search process to deal with multiple consecutive whitespaces as being a single space character. For instance, searching for a phrase like "better product" in documents containing the "better [newline] product", will find a match.
