JAXE, a new document oriented XML editor
09:06, 14 May 2002 UTC | Eric van der Vlist

Damien Guillaume has published JAXE, a new XML editor, written in Java and published under the GPL, for users who want something more than "yet another XML editor with a tree interface".

Editing document is done -- as you would guess -- in text mode, with the start and end element tags being displayed differently for block and in-line elements.

The very straightforward user interface is built on two menu bars: a generic menu bar giving access to File, Edit and View menus and a specific menu bar for each document type.

The definition of a document type is done through an XML configuration document. In addition to defining the specific menu bar, this configuration gives the location of a W3C XML Schema instance (October 2000 CR in the current version) and an XSLT transform to visualize the document as HTML.

JAXE is also extensible through defining Java classes called when elements are added.
