XML Schema Diagram

The XML Schema diagram offers a nice and compact representation of the schemas and allows intuitive schema authoring with drag-and-drop and in-place editing.

In-Place Editing   [read more...]

You can edit XML Schema component features directly within the diagram (for instance, the component name, its type, etc.) Valid proposals are offered in the contextual menu allowing you to easily insert new components in the current context.

Drag-and-Drop Editing   [read more...]

You can design your schema in the XML Schema diagram editor (Design mode) by using drag-and-drop to move, copy, or make references.

Attributes View   [read more...]

The Attributes view provides an easy way to edit attributes for all XML Schema components. You can choose valid values from a list or you can specify your own values. If an attribute has an invalid value it will be highlighted in the table so that you can easily spot the error and fix it.

Facets View   [read more...]

Using the Facets view, you can easily check the existing facets (including the default facets), edit values, or add patterns and enumerations. If a facet has an invalid value it will be highlighted in the table.

Visual Error Markers   [read more...]

When an editing action introduces an error, the XML Schema validator displays the border of that particular component in red.

Documentation for XML Schema

Oxygen provides a flexible, carefully designed and fast XML Schema documentation tool.

Multiple Output Formats   [read more...]

It is possible to generate XML Schema documentation in various formats including HTML, PDF, and DocBook.

For large XML Schemas, a generate documentation option is available for the HTML format that will output documentation in multiple files. The documentation includes diagrams that represent the models for the XML elements, attributes, and types.

Support for Imported and Included XML Schemas   [read more...]

The generated documentation includes all the components defined in the imported or included schemas.

Best Look and Performance   [read more...]

The documentation output is carefully designed with a balanced selection of colors and a neatly organized layout.

Oxygen XML Editor delivers the best performance available for generating XML schema documentation. Even for the largest XML schemas (thousands of components), Oxygen generates complete documentation within seconds.

Author Mode

Generate Compiled HTML Help from DITA

Oxygen XML Editor detects the installed Microsoft HTML Help Workshop and uses it to automatically generate the Compiled HTML Help output from DITA maps.

Resolve Links Through XML Catalogs

The references presented as links in Author mode such as the DocBook elements link and xref or the XHTML a element are resolved through the XML catalogs registered in the Oxygen preferences.

[API] Execute XPath from an Author Extension

The API for developing custom Author actions was enhanced with two functions for executing XPath expressions on the edited document.

[API] Author Extensions Can Receive Document Change Notifications

The API for developing Author extensions provides support to receive notifications when the XML document is changed.


XML Schema Outline View   [read more...]

The Outline view for XML Schema displays the XML schema components from the current schema and from the included and imported schemas. All the global components can be sorted by name and grouped by type, location, or namespace.

XSLT Outline View

The Outline view for XSLT displays the stylesheet components (templates, functions, variables, parameters, attribute-sets, character-maps) from the currently edited file and from the included and imported stylesheets. The components defined in a stylesheet different from the current one are grayed-out.

XQuery Outline View   [read more...]

The Outline view displays the list of all components (namespace declarations, variables, and functions) from the imported modules, along with the components declared in the current file. Components can be sorted by name and grouped by type, location, or namespace.

Filter Components in Outline View

You can easily focus on a subset of components using the Outline view filtering feature. Simply type a text fragment in the filter box and only the components matching it will be presented. For advanced filtering, you can use wildcards (*, ?) and separate multiple patterns with commas.

Content Completion Assistant

Content Completion Assistant Offers the List of Components from Included/Imported XML Schemas   [read more...]

XML Schema editing is simple with Oxygen, since you can insert references to components from other XML Schema files and you are assisted by the Content Completion Assistant. Oxygen automatically detects the modified included/imported schemas and adjusts the list of proposals in the Content Completion Assistant.

Content Completion Assistant Offers the List of Components from Included/Imported XSLT Stylesheets

The Content Completion Assistant offers XSLT variables, templates, functions and modes not only from the current stylesheet but also from the included or imported ones.

Content Completion Assistant Offers the List of Components from Imported XQuery Modules   [read more...]

The Content Completion Assistant offers variables and functions from the edited file and also from the imported XQuery modules.

Content Completion Assistant Offers XQuery Functions, Including XML Database Extensions   [read more...]

For all the supported XML database engines (eXist, MarkLogic, Tiger Logic, Oracle, SQL Server, etc.), the Content Completion Assistant displays both the XQuery standard functions and the extension functions available for that engine.

XSLT and XQuery

Advanced XSLT and XQuery Transformation Options

The advanced options of Saxon SA and Saxon B are available at the transformation scenario level. Options such as validation of the source XML file, handling of recoverable errors, whitespace stripping and the initial XSLT mode or template can be customized for each scenario.

The Default Validation Engine is Taken from the Associated Transformation Scenario

If a transformation scenario is associated with the edited XSLT file, XQuery file or SQL file the default validation processor is the processor set in the transformation scenario. For example, if you run an XQuery against an eXist database that XQuery will be validated by Oxygen with eXist and not with Saxon, the default XQuery engine.


Support for PostgreSQL 8.3 Database

The PostgreSQL 8.3 database is supported in the Database perspective of Oxygen XML Editor. The tables of a PostgreSQL 8.3 database can be browsed, opened and updated.

Updated TigerLogic Database Support for Version 3.1

Version 3.1 of the TigerLogic XML database is now supported in Oxygen.

Updated eXist Database Support for Version 1.3
