Not all XML Tools Follow W3C Standards
When it comes to standards compliance, not all XML IDEs are created equally. Stylus Studio is designed from the ground up to provide a seamless integration with all of the major XML Schema, XSLT, and XQuery processing components, including Apache Xerces, XSV, Microsoft System.XML, MSXML, DataDirect XQuery
, Saxon 8.7, Apache Xalan, and many other popular XML processing components, whereas other XML IDEs support only their own proprietary XML processing components
which, according to many users, suffer from various standards-compatibility issues
. Stylus Studio also relies on standard W3C XQuery and XSLT as its internal diagram mapping representations, avoiding any proprietary intermediate formats. CRN Technical Editor Mario Morejon recognized this key differentiating factor in his report in the April Issue of CRN Magazine, noting that "[Stylus Studio 2006 Release 2] is powerful and unlike its competitors, follows most XML development standards".
Stylus Studio is Simple to Use
Mr. Morejon also reports that "Stylus' XML Schema editor
is simple to use ... Stylus Studio
leads the industry in adhering to most leading XML parsers and validators
</em>[providing] integrated support for Apache's Xalan-J, Microsoft's MSXML .Net
, and Saxon 6 and 8,</em> [as well as] its own XSLT processor.</em>" Software professionals are encouraged to read the full CRN article, entitled Querying XML With Stylus Studio
