Xeena - Editor for XML Data
Xeena is an XML editor for editing XML data found in the XML documents. It is actually a Java application that is used to edit the XML documents that are derived from a Document Type Definition (DTD). The user of this software need not know XML to create and edit the XML document in Xeena. The user interface of this software is so simple that any user can work on the software. The tool tips that are shown when the mouse is moved over a tool is self describing and the user can easily work on the software.
The input to this application is a DTD document. On getting the DTD document as input the software creates a palette based on the elements defined in the DTD document. Only valid elements are displayed to the user to create an XML document. The elements defined in the DTD document are displayed in the tree like structure so that the child elements appear below the main element in a hierarchy. This visual presentation of the elements makes it easy for any user to edit the elements, its values and its attributes.
The software applications always checks that you are not adding any unwanted elements that contradicts the DTD that has been given as the input to the application, based on which the XML document is being created. The key feature of this Xeena software application is that it is syntax-directed in its editing capability.
The other main features of the software are:
Allows many XML documents to be edited:
Xeena is built with swing and the xml parser for java being the base. The user interface of the software application is by default split into two vertical parts. The right side of the screen has the editor where all the elements of the document palette which was created based on the DTD is displayed. On the left of the screen a tab is displayed which lists out the elements of the document. You can select the element using the right part of the window or the tab that is found in the left side of the screen. Upon selecting the element, the corresponding element is highlighted on left and the right side of the screen in both the windows.
Consider that you have selected an element in the tab found on the left of the screen. The attributes of that element are displayed below the tab just like the property window in other Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). The property window below the element tab displays the attribute on the left and the value of that attribute to the right. The user can edit the attribute values in that window. Though the window on the right will allow an user to alter the order of the elements, the software application will not allow different orders of the elements that are against the DTD. It strictly follows the DTD, disabling any unwanted shuffling of the order of the elements, so that resulting XML document adheres to the DTD is every manner.
Xeena is a easy to use tool that is available for editing XML documents
and to create an XML document from an DTD document. The user need not
know the intricacies of XML to work with this software application. The
software supports DTD and support for Schema is not available at present.
