XML | XSL / XSLT | SQL | Ruby, Ruby on Rails

Name Description Author Requires Link Updated
XML #

Validate XML This script checks if the current active document has a valid XML structure. This is done by using Microsoft's XMLDOM Object. DrTebi HS 4+ # 6/29/04
SQL To ADO XML This script takes a connection string and an SQL statement and returns the ADO-generated XML file in a new document. Corey Haines
HS 4+ # 8/10/00
XPath Tester This script will accept an XPath query and execute it on the currently active document. The resulting nodeset will be placed into a new document.

XSL Transformation Script This transforms the currently open XML document (file extension of xml) with the currently open XSL document (file extension of either xsl or xslt) and puts the result in another window. Before executing the transformation, the script will prompt for values for any stylesheet-level parameters (nodelist = /xsl:stylesheet/xsl:param). Corey Haines

Create XSL Stylesheet This script creates an XSL stylesheet, prompting you as needed. DrTebi HS 4+ # 6/9/04
XSLTemplate Explorer This XSL template browser works from a toolbar button. It pops up a list box pick list of every <xsl:template/> tag in the current file. Clicking on an entry in the list jumps your cursor to that location. Your script will be untouched, with no modifications. For ASP developers using HomeSite to create long complex XSLT/XSL documents with lots of templates. Note that this is a mod of Procedure Explorer. Trevor Brierly HS 4+ # 8/21/01

HS 4.5+ # 11/24/06

Note: When I say "HS3+" in requirements, I mean that this item will work with HomeSite or Studio version 3 or greater. Likewise "HS4+" items will work with HomeSite v4.0x or Studio 4.0x or later. (including HS v5.x)

Homesite vs. Studio: Please note that these extensions are written for various version of Macromedia (Allaire) HomeSite. Macromedia also makes two other products, ColdFusion Studio and JRun Studio that are supersets of HomeSite. These extensions should work in these products as well, though you should watch the version numbers. Studio version numbers follow HomeSite versions so something that works in a particular version of HomeSite should work in that same version of CF or JRun Studio.
