If you are looking for a decent XML editor and validator software, I have something good to share with you guys.
I myself was looking for a software to view, edit and format my XML data in an easy and hassle free manner. After trying out a few softwares, I stumbled across this handy tool which offers a complete solution. Yes! that’s right. This is a compete XML and JSON editor and validator package, called XML Validator Buddy.
XML Validator Buddy offers you the feature of enhanced XML creation and editing. I quite liked the syntax colouring feature that results in an increased visibility and readability. You will love the auto-completion feature as well that will save you a lot of time. The XSD/DTD validator ensures that your XML is error free, as a matter of fact, you can check it with just one click of the button!
You can easily convert between XML and JSON and can import CSV text and get XML. XML Validator Buddy is not only an XML editor, it is also an excellent XML batch validator, XPath evaluator, Schematron tool and a comprehensive solution for XML signatures. Now you can create error free XML with well-formed checking and the built-in schema validator.
This software offers you a better way to edit and create JSON as well. You can complete JSON grid-style editor for Windows to create error-free JSON with ease. The software uses an intelligent auto-completion technology which will save you a lot of time.
You can use this tool as your JSON editor to create and modify JSON content or JSON Schema files and get access to extraordinary editor features like JSON well-formed checking, intelligent auto-completion, pretty-print, remove whitespace and JSON Schema validation. JSONBuddy also provides additional functionalities to work efficiently with JSON. Few of them are:
- Convert between XML and JSON.
- Convert JSON to CSV text.
- Import CSV and get XML or JSON data.
- Apply stylesheets to JSON and generate HTML.
I love the integration on one screen of the XML instance, the Schematron rules with the easy ‘Validate’ button and the results output pane. XML Validator Buddy makes Schematron development easier and faster.
XML Validator Buddy works on Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10. You can also use the XML Validator Buddy plugin which adds easy to use Schematron business rules to XMLSpy. This way everyone who uses XMLSpy has access to powerful rule-based XML Schematron checks with a single click. Schematron XMLSpyPlugin requires XMLSpy2006 or newer.
