As you’re composing an XPath expression in Text View, Grid View, or in XMLSpy's XPath/XQuery window, XMLSpy provides you with valid XPath operators and functions, as well as element and attribute names from the associated schema and XML instance(s).
Intelligent XPath auto-completion accounts for namespaces when listing options and even provides deep path suggestions when the required node is not in close proximity to the current context.
However, in the process of decomposing XML data to store it object-relationally, Oracle XML DB does automatically perform partial validation, to ensure that the structure of the XML document conforms to the SQL data type definitions that were derived from the XML schema.
If you require full validation for data stored object-relationally, then consider validating on the client before inserting the data into the database or updating it.
Intelligent entry helper windows and drop down menus offer you choices of elements, attributes, and entities that you can insert with one click, and code completion speeds typing and ensures balanced opening and closing tags.
Integrated project management functionality lets you group related files and assign XSLT transformations, perform batch operations, plug in to source control systems, and more.
With XSLT you can transform an XML document into HTML.Though you can use the XSLT editor in XMLSpy’s Enhanced Grid View to view and edit your stylesheet code in a tabular format, most developers prefer to work in Text View for this type of development.When you're editing XSLT, the Text View provides syntax coloring, line numbering, source folding, book marking, and other visual cues for organizing and navigating through your code quickly and easily.In this article, we will discover a multiple-stage validation process that begins with schema validation, but also uses XPath and XSLT to assert constraints on document content that are too complex or otherwise inappropriate for W3C XML Schema.We can think of a schema as both expressive and prescriptive: it describes the intended structure and interpretation of a type of document, and in the same breath it spells out constraints on legal content.
