Oxygen XML Developer 14.2

February 13, 2013

Related versions: 14.0     14.1    

Version 14.2 of Oxygen XML Developer completes the set of XML Schema 1.1-related features with full schema editing support and capabilities to generate XML instances and schema documentation in accordance with W3C standards.

Improvements were made for quickly finding resources in the project by searching in their content or file paths. Oxygen offers these advanced search capabilities by adding a dedicated view that supports complex text search expressions (multiple words, boolean operators, group searches, etc.), as well as XML-aware filters.

Documents from a Microsoft SharePoint server can be accessed using the Data Source Explorer view, where you can edit, check-in, or check-out resources directly.

As usual, Oxygen XML updates many components to their latest versions, and extends the API available to third-party applications.

There are changes in:

XML Schema 1.1 Support

Complete Support for XML Schema 1.1

Oxygen improved the XML Schema 1.1 support, including schema and instance validation, content completion assistance, resource dependencies, search and refactoring actions, and the schema Design mode. It is also possible to generate XML instances and XML Schema documentation starting from an XML Schema 1.1 file [read more].

Fast Text Searching

Search Resources by Name or Content   [read more...]

You can find resources by typing words from their content or by resource names (or even parts of their names). You also have the capability to search through comments, insertions, deletions, and highlighted content in all the resources of a project or opened DITA map. The results are available instantly. The Open/Find Resource view and the redesigned Open/Find Resource dialog box support both simple text and complex searches (boolean operator searches, XML-aware searches, group searches, etc.) The search index is automatically rebuilt when you make changes to files in your project (such as add, delete, refresh, or save resources).

CMS Integration and Connectivity

SharePoint Support

You can connect to a Microsoft SharePoint server, browse it using the Data Source Explorer view, edit, check-in, and check-out resources. The SharePoint support is available in the Oxygen XML Enterprise Edition only.

Data Protocol Support

Oxygen supports rendering of images embedded with the RFC 2397 data protocol.
