You can manage the transformation scenarios by using the Transformation Scenarios view. To open this view, select Window > Show View > Transformation Scenarios.

Figure: Transformation Scenarios view

Oxygen XML Editor supports multiple scenarios association. To associate multiple scenarios with a document, select the checkboxes in front of each scenario. You can also associate multiple scenarios with a document from the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) dialog box.

The Transformation Scenarios view presents both global and project-level scenarios. By default, Oxygen XML Editor presents the items in the following order:
  1. Scenarios that match the current framework.
  2. Scenarios that match the current project.
  3. Scenarios that match other frameworks.

Toolbar/Contextual Menu Actions and Options

The following actions and options are available on the toolbar or in the contextual menu:

Apply selected scenarios
Select this option to run the current transformation scenario.
Debug selected scenario
Select this option to switch to the Debugger perspective and initialize it with the parameters from the scenario (the XML, XSLT, or XQuery input, the transformation engine, the XSLT parameters).
New
This drop-down menu contains a list of the scenarios that you can create. Oxygen XML Editor determines the most appropriate scenarios for the current type of file and displays them at the beginning of the list, followed by the rest of the scenarios.
Duplicate
Adds a new scenario to the list that is a duplicate of the current scenario. It is useful for creating a scenario that is similar to an existing one.
Edit
Opens the dialog box that allows you to configure various options in several tabs, depending on the type of transformation scenario that was selected. For information about all the specific options in the various tabs, see the Transformation Types section.
Remove
Removes the current scenario from the list. This action is also available by using the Delete key.
Change storage
Use this option to change the storage location of the selected scenario. You are also able to keep the original storage location and make a copy of the selected scenario in the target storage location.
Import scenarios
This option opens the Import scenarios dialog box that allows you to select the scenarios file that contains the scenarios you want to import. If one of the scenarios you import is identical to an existing scenario, Oxygen XML Editor ignores it. If a conflict appears (an imported scenario has the same name as an existing one), you can choose between two options:
  • Keep or replace the existing scenario.
  • Keep both scenarios.
    Note: When you keep both scenarios, Oxygen XML Editor adds imported to the name of the imported scenario.
Export selected scenarios
Use this option to export transformation and validation scenarios individually. Oxygen XML Editor creates a scenarios file that contains the scenarios that you export.
Settings
This drop-down menu allows you to configure the following options (many of these options are also available if you right-click the name of a column):
Show all scenarios
Select this option to display all the available scenarios, regardless of the document they are associated with.
Show only the scenarios available for the editor
Select this option to only display the scenarios that Oxygen XML Editor can apply for the current document type.
Show associated scenarios
Select this option to only display the scenarios associated with the document you are editing.
Change storage
Use this option to change the storage location of the selected scenario to Project Options or Global Options. You are also able to keep the original storage location and make a copy of the selected scenario in the new storage location.
Import scenarios
This option opens the Import scenarios dialog box that allows you to select the scenarios file that contains the scenarios you want to import. If one of the scenarios you import is identical to an existing scenario, Oxygen XML Editor ignores it. If a conflict appears (an imported scenario has the same name as an existing one), you can choose between two options:
  • Keep or replace the existing scenario.
  • Keep both scenarios.
    Note: When you keep both scenarios, Oxygen XML Editor adds imported to the name of the imported scenario.
Export selected scenarios
Use this option to export selected scenarios individually. Oxygen XML Editor creates a scenarios file that contains the scenarios that you export. This is useful if you want to share scenarios with others or export them to another computer.
Show Type
Use this option to display the transformation type of each scenario.
Show Storage
Use this option to display the storage location of the scenarios.
Group by Association
Select this option to group the scenarios depending on whether or not they are associated with the current document.
Group by Type
Select this option to group the scenarios by their type.
Group by Storage
Select this option to group the scenarios by their storage location.
Ungroup all
Select this option to ungroup all the scenarios.
Reset Layout
Select this option to restore the default settings of the layout.

Your selections in the Transformation Scenarios view are persistent so the configured associations for the current document will be remembered whenever the document is opened.
