About XMLSpy

XMLSpy is an on-premise solution that helps businesses leverage XML and JSON editors to build applications and manage modeling processes. Professionals can use the Smart Fix XLM tool to automatically detect, validate and resolve issues across files or codes.

XMLSpy allows organizations to create schemas using a drag-and-drop interface and simultaneously apply updates across multiple files, folders or a single project. Managers can create graphical representations of JSON documents, troubleshoot XPath/XQuery and handle refactoring processes.

Great Product!

I've written tens of thousands of lines of XSLT code using XMLSpy. It is my favorite XML editor.

Pros

XMLSpy is a full featured markup language editor. I am able to work within multiple markup languages, including XSLT and easily debug my code using this product.

Cons

In my opinion the cost is a little high for this product. But if you work in coding (by hand) these languages on a daily basis then it is worth it.

XML Spy - the XML Editor of your choice

XMLSpy is a very versatile XML Editor that we use a lot for our integrations. Like all Altova Products if you get stuck with a problem you usually count on the Altova team in Austria to fix your support issue within 24 hours.

Pros

I like the new XBRL Taxonomy Manager in XML Spy 2021 which helps to manage XBRL taxanomies across the different Altova applications. XML Spy will always be my first choice of XML editors. We use it a lot in conjunction with Altova's MapForce product

Cons

Software has several updates over the course of the year as have all Altova products. That can be a plus but it also means testing the updated versions before releasing them into the Production environment.

Great product for using and maintaining XML code

- Manipulating and maintaining XML and JSON files easily.

Pros

- Features, features, features. Everything and anything that you might like to do with XML files and some things you may not realize you could do - Straightforward interface - Customer support was excellent although typical menu system to talk to a real person

Cons

- Examples are not great. Too complex in some ways and not enough explanations of how to use features. Need a better set of examples and perhaps one that continues through all the features. - Renewals are end of September which is problematic as that is in the middle of peak use time for us

Great for Viewing and Editing

I use this software to create, view, and edit XML and WSDL files for our platform. The ease of use allows me to come in with no prior experience and be able to pick up the format quickly. This software aided me in presenting deliverables that the client made a point to say were excellent.

Pros

This software allows a user to easily create and view XML and WSDL files in multiple ways. The text is presented in an easy to read format that is miles about standard text editors.

Cons

I haven't personally encountered any issues with this software. It has filled all of my needs and came highly recommended.
