I am very pleased to anounce (a little bit later than promised) the
release of XML Hammer version 1.0 beta-2.
This is a major feature release, the main new features are:
* Live, 'as you type' error information for XPath searches, Regular
Expression and other fields,
* 'Find in' output, open files in external applications (editors/browser),
* run projects 'head-less' from the command-line,
* new project wizards,
* support for XML Catalogs,
* different look and feels and more ...
When the only thing you've got is a XML Hammer, every solution looks like XML.
The XML Hammer application is a tool that simplifies elementary XML
actions like checking for well-formedness, validation, transformation
and xpath searches using any JAXP implementation.
After all these years of XML, it is still relatively difficult to
simply validate or transform XML files. You are currently either
forced to use extensive, sometimes expensive, and most often difficult
to use tools with a lot of extra functionality unnecessary for these
simple tasks and very often not flexible enough to provide what you
want, or you will have to be almost a programmer and create your own
application or script to handle these elementary XML related tasks.
The XML Hammer tool addresses these issues by providing a free and
open-source tool that has a (relatively) simple to use user-interface
however still allowing the flexibility for the user to specify
anything that he/she would have been able to specify when writing a
script for this same task him/herself.
