Liquid XML Studio Features

Liquid XML Studio is an advanced graphical XML development environment.

Liquid XML Studio is available in two editions, Starter and Designer. To see the full set of features available in each edition see the Edition Comparison chart.

For XML Code Generation functionality, please see Liquid XML Data Binder.

The following provides an overview of the core XML tools and features included in Liquid XML Studio.

Graphical XML Schema Editor
Visualize and edit an abstracted view of your XML schema (XSD) using an intuitive user interface, and validate your XSD against the W3C standards. Includes split graphical and text views, intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
Graphical XML Editor
Visualize and edit your XML data in a tree and tabular grid, and validate your XML document against an XML schema. Includes split graphical and text views, intellisense, syntax highlighting, spell checking, document outline, breadcrumb, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
Graphical WSDL Editor
Visualize and edit an abstracted view of your Web Service using an intuitive user interface, and validate your WSDL against the W3C standards. Includes split graphical and text views, intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
XSLT Editor and Debugger
Author, validate and debug your XSLT stylesheet, set breakpoints within the XSLT source, watch variables and analyse the call stack. Includes intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
XQuery Editor and Debugger
Author, validate and debug your XQuery module or library, set breakpoints within the XSLT source, watch variables and analyse the call stack. Includes intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
XHTML Editor
Edit your XHTML document, and validate your XHTML against the W3C standards. Includes intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
DTD Editor
Edit your DTD document, and validate your DTD against the W3C standards. Includes intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
CSS Editor
Edit your CSS document, and validate your CSS against the W3C standards. Includes intellisense, syntax highlighting, drag and drop, copy and paste, and multi-step undo/redo.
XPath Tools
Construct and evaluate XPath expressions for your selected XML document. Nodes matching the expression are highlighted within the document, and a tree of matching nodes is displayed in the expression window.
XML Data Mapper
Convert your XML data by mapping fields between your XML documents using an intuitive drag and drop graphical interface. Set breakpoints within the transform, watch variables and analyse the call stack in the step through debugger.
XML Sample Builder
Create an XML document based on your XML schema (XSD) using a simple Wizard driven interface. Select the root node and the generator will create all the child elements and attributes, populating them with placeholder values.
Documentation Generator
Create an HTML or ASP.Net web site based on your XML schema (XSD) using a simple Wizard driven interface. The generated documentation contains the original schema data, diagrams, detailed properties, type hierarchy, and annotations, hyperlinked to allow simple site navigation.
Infer XML Schema
Create an XML schema based on a set of sample XML documents using a simple Wizard driven interface. Configuration options allow you to customise the generator output, for example to favour complex types or elements.
XML Differencing
Quickly compare the differences between two XML documents using coloured highlighted sections in a graphical interface. Advanced heuristic algorithms are used to examine the source documents to determine if attributes and elements are new, deleted or have moved within the documents.
Web Services Test Client
Quickly call your Web Services using a simple Wizard driven interface. Select your web service URL, pick a web method and run the generated SOAP request. Provides support for HTTP GET, HTTP POST, SOAP, HTTPS, and client certificate authentication.
Visual Studio Integration
Seamless integration of Liquid XML Studio within the Microsoft Visual Studio IDE. Supported tools include XML Schema Editor, WSDL Editor, XPath Expression Builder, XML Sample Builder, Documentation Generator, Infer XML Schema and Web Service Test Client.
XML Navigation Aids
The outline view of an XML document is quick any easy way to navigate large or complex XML files. The Document Outline tree is kept in sync with the XML document in realtime as it changes.
A bread crumb is also shown which shows all parent elements, making it possible to orientate yourself in large XML documents.
Spell Checking
Liquid XML Studio contain a powerful Spell Checker. The Spell Checker highlights spelling mistakes inline in real time as you type, mistakes can then be corrected by clicking on them and selecting the correct spelling.
