Exchanger XML Editor Overview
In addition to the new features such as Grid based editing, XSLT 2.0 Debugging using Saxon 8.4 (The Saxon XSLT and XQuery Processor from Saxonica Limited,, XML Schema Instance Generation and simplified XSLT transformations, the Exchanger XML Editor also includes Multiple Document Interface, XDiff and Merge, XML Signature and a host of other features for an improved editing experience. The Exchanger XML Editor also provides support for a broad range of XML-related standards including XML Schema, RelaxNG, XPath, XQuery, SVG, etc. This functionality, coupled with its usability, cross-platform support and low cost, makes the Exchanger XML Editor ideal for use in both Commercial and Academic environments.

New in Exchanger XML Editor V3.1
The primary focus of this release is a Grid view which provides a convenient means for viewing and editing XML while shielding the user from the complexities of the actual mark-up. While the Grid is particularly useful for handling structured data, such as purchase orders or medical records, it also supports documents that contain mixed content. With its spreadsheet like interface, the Grid view allows users to easily manipulate data in a tag-free but XML-Aware environment.

The Exchanger XSLT Debugger now handles XSLT 2.0 Debugging using Saxon 8.4. The Exchanger XSLT Debugger can be run in standalone mode as well as integrated with the Editor, thereby facilitating the debugging of much larger input documents which do not have to be opened in the Editor.

XSLT Transformations have been simplified through the use of redesigned Input dialogs for both the XML Input and XSL Input. Users may now choose between the current open document, choosing a different document or choosing a document from a URL.

Sample Instance Generation from XML Schema allows the user to simply and easily generate an example document that conforms to an XML Schema. Required elements and required attributes will always be generated but the user also have the option to generate optional elements, optional attributes and to generate content.

The User Interface has been improved with the use of new and updated icons on the toolbar and throughout the Editor. This has helped to increase the visual appeal of such items as the Schema Viewer and Outliner.

JGoodies Look and Feel have been included with this release of the Exchanger XML Editor giving the user more choice when assigning a look and feel.

In addition we now offer video demonstrations of the major features of the Exchanger XML Editor and Exchanger XSLT Debugger and a comprehensive documentation library. These can be viewed at
