Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Edition is a comprehensive IDE environment for creating, designing and exporting XML projects. Geared toward programmers, the tool comes packed with a lot of advanced options, such as syntax highlighting support, XPath query editor, document validator, and spellchecker.
Feature-rich interface with advanced options
The GUI may seem overwhelming to the untrained eye, but it's quite easy to navigate. You are provided with a project explorer for navigating files and folders included in the project, and you can open multiple documents at once to easily switch through them.
What's more, you can use a file explorer available for the local disk, WebDAV, Secure WebDAV or FTP account, relational DB or TigerLogic XDMS, indent XML tags, add new files and a base catalog, save the project to file and resume it later, manage breakpoints before debugging the code, preview the XML in Internet Explorer, add the current project to a source control, and so on. These are just part of the options provided by this software utility.
