XML Projects

XML Projects

  • Comments 25

Now that Whidbey is almost out the door, we've started planning our next release.  A number of customers have told us that they would like to have XML Projects.  However, nobody explained exactly what that meant.  So I'd like to investigate this a bit further.  Do you have a need for an XML Project?  If so, what kind of functionality are you looking for, is it just a collection of files or something more?  Would you need a generic XML project or various flavors - XSLT, XSD, etc.?

  • Not that I was asking, but I would assume that people are asking for XMLSpy-like functionality built into VS.NET.
  • No need for such a thing here.

    I'm guessing that maybe such request are from people who really don't know what they want.

    Maybe they just want a checkbox that will automatically add Imports/Using System.Xml?

  • I'm not sure what's meant by XML Project, but I'd love to see an XSL debugger included with VS.
  • I think what customers are looking for is Altova's XmlSpy functionality within Visual Studio.
  • An XML project should pre-compile XSDs (generate strongly-typed XmlReaders maybe that only validate a given structure, boosting performance) and XSLT (generating the IL for the stylesheets for me to use directly as a class from referencing projects).
    I'm not sure if I'll need separate projects for them, though....

  • look at xmlspy
  • I'm pretty sure your customers are looking for better XSLT support eg. ability to design XSL transformation's with a graphical user interface:

    Transform xml to another xml file (mabe pickup destination schema from another xml on the way) and be able to graphically drag from source to destination and in the background generate xsl file that can be reused for this transformation.

    Support for transformation of xml to html/text output using the same type of interface would be nice.
  • Take a look at xmlspy enterprise edition, we basicly want that ;)
  • Is there a download for the XML library for
    my 2003 MS Business Offic Word. Why only on the XP Professional 2003? I need for my archiving business.

  • This may not be what you are asking for but I would like an update to MSXML4 with enhanced XSLT support integrated into (or a plug-in for) Internet Explorer 6. Either a version natively supporting EXSLT or some subset of XSLT 2.0
    My work is all client-side XSLT transformations in a web browser.
    Thanks
  • What XML Projects? Are you looking for ideas or something?
  • Looking for suggestions on a great training book; step by step; how to create and map an excel file. (even from access to excel).

    Each month I have to pull data from an SQL statement or access -- put it in a summary report as well as prepare individual excel files to show individual sales performance reports.

    I think that I can automate this with XML; but have not found good examples of this...and have not had time to just play with it...... does anyone know of any examples or templates or books out there??

    Thanks!
  • I'm not sure if I'm understanding the question correclty, but it would be nice to have a set of small projects that help introduce key classes of the xml namespace. Nothing really overly complicated and nothing simply trivial. Because the hardest part of learning a new namespace is having relevant real-world projects to assoicated the classes with...
  • I need XmlProject for Xml Schemas design.
    SOA requires several XmlSchemas that make a all, XmlSchema's <imports> & <include> should be manage at a project level.
    Beside Xml Schemas project the target is
    >> Web Service DataContract design
    >> Business entity Code generation ( from DataContract )
    >> SQL Server 2005 Schemas collection management & XQuery
