ANN: Lantern 1.0

Discussion in 'XML' started by Frederic Laurent, Sep 25, 2003.

  1. Hello all,

    I am pleased to announce Lantern 1.0 [1].
    Lantern is an OpenSource software which allows users to load XML documents
    and then test XPath [2] expressions and functions.

    The features of Lantern comply to the following:
    - to be a simple and lightweight software which does nothing but XPath testing;
    - to produce an immediate graphical result (selected nodes and context
    node are highlighted);
    - to be namespaces aware;
    - to allow the user to set a context node, thus to test expressions
    related to this node;
    - to embed a short documentation about XPath;
    - to allow the user to test XPath functions easily;
    - to display the XML document in the same format as it is stored in the
    file (ie: not as an ugly tree widget);
    - to be available as an open source, platform independent software.

    Lantern addresses :
    - XPath and XSLT developers who would like to find the right XPath
    expression without developing test cases,
    - trainers who wish to illustrate their course with a graphical tool.

    Enjoy!
