Validation on edit
  • Validation on edit - The new Validate on Edit feature flags validation and well-formedness errors as you type in Text View and JSON Grid View. Every text change triggers validation in the background, so you can fix errors and immediately see if they are valid without the need to manually validate the file. Detailed information about validation or well-formedness errors is available in the messages window or on mouse-over of the error icon in Text View as well as in JSON Grid View.
  • Auto-backup of documents during editing - XMLSpy can now automatically backup any file as it’s being edited. This way, in the unlikely event of a software or computer shutdown, the user won’t lose their work.
  • Improvements to XPath Debugger - The XPath Debugger in XMLSpy lets developers move step-by-step through the evaluation of an XPath or XQuery expression against the active file to analyze the results for the corresponding step of the evaluation. At each evaluation step, the part of the expression being currently evaluated is highlighted and the result of evaluating that step is shown in the Results pane. Now, in v2020r2, even more helpful details are provided in the call stack window: Users can now see the context and variables at each step in the call stack. This, in addition to speed improvements in the XPath Debugger, make testing and debugging XPath/XQuery easier than ever.
  • Support for X3D files - XMLSpy provides built-in support for numerous file types, with support added in v2020r2 for X3D (eXtensible 3D), a file format used for representing and communicating 3D scenes and objects embedded in applications.
  • Support for additional database versions - Support for Informix, PostgreSQL, and SQLite in XMLSpy and other Altova products has been updated to include the latest versions of those databases:
    • Informix 14.10
    • PostgreSQL 12
    • SQLite 3.31
  • Integration with Eclipse 4.13 and 4.14
