XMLDiff aims at providing efficient diffs on XML files. Features include detection of modified items, added items, and removed items. It is not sensitive to item position changes (based on an ID). It is designed to support large XML files (about 100 Mo). It has basic XML manipulation (XSLT, deletion, etc.), scripting capabilities, and simple command line usage.
ServingXML is a markup language for expressing XML pipelines and an extensible Java framework for defining the elements of the language. It defines a vocabulary for expressing flat-XML, XML-flat, flat-flat, and XML-XML transformations in pipelines. The accompanying console app supports reading content as XML files, flat files, SQL queries, or SAX events, and writing it as XML, HTML, PDF, or mail attachments. This software is especially suited for converting flat file or database records to XML, with its support for namespaces, variant record types, multi-valued fields, segments and repeating groups, hierarchical grouping of records, and row-by-row validation with XML Schema. There is also an API for embedding the software in a Java application.
Pustefix is a Web application framework that features an XML/XSLT-based view generation and a clean MVC architecture of the backend system. The frontend can be built with the help of XSLT templates and can include parts containing HTML or XML code that is transformed, creating the final HTML output. The backend allows for the creation of reusable handler classes, which can be aggregated into complete pages. These handlers get their input in the form of real Java objects that are already assembled and checked against user defined rules by the framework.
Dexter is a tool that allows users to define extended attributes which can be associated with descriptors and editors. These attributes can be embedded into any well-formed XML document. The resulting embellished document, the 'source', is then input to the dexter engine. This will generate one or more XSLT stylesheets describing the input document interpolating editor modifications and any instructions specified by the descriptors. As dexter's operations are specified exclusively with extended attributes, all but the most unforgiving of XML content viewers will continue to see the decorated source exactly as the designer saw it before.
DocBook XSL Configurator is an umbrella project currently consisting of three similar Java Swing applications used to create DocBook XSL customization layers, run external subprocesses that format DocBook XML, and view the results. Users click through tables, select parameters, edit those parameters, include the customization layer in a project, write out the customization layer as an XSL file, and apply the XSL to the project's XML using the project's specified XSLT processor. DocBook XSL Configurator then runs a project's FO processor, PDF/PostScript viewer, HTML viewer, or man page viewer as an external subprocess.
EditiX Lite is a powerful and easy to use XML editor, visual schema editor and XSLT debugger. It is designed to help Web authors and application programmers take advantage of the latest XML and XML-related technologies such as XSLT/FO, DocBook, and XSD Schema. It has real-time XPath location and syntax error detection, context syntax popups supporting DTD, Schema, and RelaxNG, and support for multiple templates and project management.
