Top-Ten Reasons to Buy Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite - Wondering why you should buy Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite instead of Stylus Studio XML Professional Suite? Here are 10 reasons:

10. Java Code Generation
Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite generates portable Java code for XML transformations (XSLT) and queries (XQuery) developed in Stylus Studio. The generated Java files, which work in any software application, reflect all of the settings that you specified in your XQuery and XSLT scenario properties — your choice of XML processor, parameters, input/output files, and post processing options — are all preserved and converted to working code! Dozens of other options allow you to easily further customize the generated code. Save yourself hours of tedious and error-prone work with the click of a button with the Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite Java Code Generator.

9. XSLT and XQuery Profilers
Profilers are important tools for analyzing XSLT stylesheet or XQuery performance — they report detailed trace of execution times, allowing you to benchmark XSLT or XQuery against different processors, providing valuable insight into how to optimize the underlying XSLT or XQuery code. As XSLT and XQuery applications become increasingly complex, Stylus Studio's Profiler become essential - especially if you plan to deploy XSLT or XQuery code to mission-critical systems. Stop the guesswork and improve XML application performance by buying Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite today.

8. Support for EDI: UN/EDIFACT, EANCOM, IATA, X12 and More
Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite has advanced EDI tools for transforming EDI files into XML — and XML back to EDI — making even the most complicated EDI integration work a breeze. It features a suite of EDI dictionaries covering dozens of versions, including HL7, EDIFACT, X12, IATA and EANCOM. There are also extension mechanisms and powerful visual tools for creating EDI-to-XML data mappings for custom formats. Wizards are provided which will create W3C XML Schema documents corresponding to specific message types and versions (such as EDIFACT or X12 schemas), so that you can validate your XML against the EDI standards.

7. Data Conversion Tools and Pre-built Data Converters
Convert to XML is the all-purpose tool for visually converting practically any data source into any XML output format, or vice-versa. You can design your own XML converters in minutes, or automatically convert stuff to XML with Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite's pre-built data converters. File formats as diverse as Base64, CSV, dBase, Binary, .ini, RTF, EDI, EDIFACT, X12 and hundreds of others can all be easily and quickly converted to XML. And these are not just one-off data conversions — they're Stylus Studio file converters. This means you can create a customized XML view of your legacy data, then seamlessly operate on that legacy data source using all of Stylus Studio's XML tools. That converted legacy data source can be used to generate Java code (see reason #10) to make the whole kit and kaboodle work in a live server-based XML application. Need to use them in your own applications? No problem. The Data Conversion API is available for your programs to call directly.

6. Industry-Standard XML Catalogs
Working with FIXML, HL7, RIXML, DocBook, or any industry-standard XML vocabulary for that matter? Then get Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite — it includes the most comprehensive out-of-the-box support for working with XML catalogs that you'll find in any XML IDE, regardless of cost. Thousands of industry-standard XML data models available to you at your fingertips.

5. Enterprise Web Service Tools
Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite provides Web service tools within the framework of the and comprehensive XML IDE. Under the covers, Web services rely on XML technologies, so an XML approach to developing XML Web services can often yield significant productivity gains. For example, once you've configured a Web Service Call Scenario, only Stylus Studio allows you to abstract the Web service call as a live, Stylus Studio data source, allowing you to seamlessly use live Web service data anywhere in Stylus Studio XML — as a data source for XQuery or XSLT, or in conjunction with the Java Code Generator for example. (See #7 for more information about Stylus Studio data sources, and #10 for the Java Code Generator).

4. XML Schema-Awareness in XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0
When working with external data sources, it's important that you check the validity of the data before using it in your application. Why? Because it helps ensure correct program behavior and reduces unwanted bugs. Validating the input in a data integration application is important, but it's not a complete solution. Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite makes it easy to practice safe XSLT and XQuery with new Schema-Awareness features, allowing you to enable static typing, type-safety and automatic validation of the output of an XML transformation or query against any XML Schema. With the new schema-aware Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite, you can automatically check and be confident in the correctness of your output.

3. XML Publishing Tools
Simplify XML Publising applications with Stylus Studio XML Publisher, a powerful XML report designer that allows users to create advanced document layouts for use in single-source publishing, XML content management, and multi-channel publishing applications. Using an intuitive visual interface, business users can easily design rich document layouts to publish XML to PDF, HTML, Postscript and many other document formats using XSLT 1.0, XSLT 2.0, or XQuery 1.0. Stylus Studio XML Publisher supports numerous heterogeneous data sources including relational databases; XML databases; Web services: EDI, EDIFACT, X12, CSV and other flat file formats; as well as XML and XML Schema documents.

2. XML Pipeline
An XML pipeline is a way to express the various steps in processing XML documents. Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite provides powerful grapical tools for expressing XML pipelines in terms of a series of XML operations, for example, converting, validating, transforming, or performing other operations on an XML document. Using the XML Pipeline, Software Architects can easily visualize their XML applications (such as ETL, EII, and EAI applications) at a higher level, and automate many common XML programming tasks including Java code generation and debugging of XML processing applications.

1. Support for DataDirect XML Converters
Once you've set up an XML data integration application in Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite, you can use the Java code generator to generate the code, leveraging DataDirect XML Converters to make it all work. And you can deploy at any level: entire pipelines, individual steps such as XQuery or XSLT embedded in Java, or even just calling the data converters directly from your own application. Instead of the black box method of deployment, use Stylus Studio XML Enterprise Suite's Java code generator (see reason #10) to take your applications from development to deployment.

Stylus Studio's main design goals were to maximize XML developer productivity, push innovation, and provide unquestioned value, which are the top needs for both software developers and managers alike.

Stylus Studio is designed to automate and accelerate the XML development process. XML's verbose self-describing syntax is generally cumbersome to work with manually, and is of course better suited for being developed with Stylus Studio. Stylus Studio consists of powerful XML editors, for example, an XML editor that allows users to work with XML in a variety of different views including text, grid, and tree views.

Complex XML code - for XQuery, XSLT, XML Schema or SQL/XML queries - can be intuitively developed using their respective editors, which support drag-and-drop or visual design operations. Productivity gains are also achieved using Stylus Studio's plentiful XML developer features, including code generators (for XML Schema and DTD, for example) and conversion utilities (import/export data wizards and HTML-to-XSLT conversions, for example) which automate commonly performed developer tasks.

Support for source code integration and a robust project window enable Stylus Studio to be used on large software projects in real-world software development scenarios.

The explosive growth of XML standards and their extensive adoption throughout enterprise computing requires an XML IDE that can provide comprehensive and innovative support for the newest XML technologies, and one capable of issuing timely product updates as XML specifications evolve. Stylus Studio has a long history of first-to-market achievements, including the first XSLT debugger, XSLT Mapper, and the new XQuery Mapper. And on startup, Stylus Studio notifies you if an update to your installed version is available, so you are never behind the curve in the rapidly evolving world of XML technology.

Stylus Studio offers unprecedented value as a true enterprise software development tool. But the value of a tool is not solely derived by merely weighing the cost of the software application against the types of productivity gains described earlier. Stylus Studio's vast collection of XML debuggers and testing utilities ensures correct program behavior and eliminates costly software bugs at the outset of the software development cycle, resulting in better quality code. Furthermore, the XML standards-based approach to software application development is fundamentally more cost effective then proprietary alternatives, enabling you to avoid the higher costs associated with single vendor traps and lock-ins. Finally, Stylus Studio product support is offered free of charge and Stylus Studio Developers Network offers numerous free developer resources, eliminating support and maintenance plans.
