[ANN] XMLmind XML Editor V2.8

Discussion in 'XML' started by Olivier Ishacian, Oct 22, 2004.

  1. =======================
    V2.8 (October 21, 2004)

    XMLmind XML Editor now has an easy to use and yet
    extremely *powerful integrated spreadsheet engine*.
    No, it does not work by embedding an external
    spreadsheet component in the document. The XML
    document is the spreadsheet. Click anywhere in a
    document and use a specialized formula editor to
    insert a new formula.

    Highlights:

    * The formula language and the predefined
    functions are very similar to those used by
    other spreadsheet software. Example:
    "sum is " & SUM(A1:A3).

    * More than 80 predefined functions are
    provided. If this is not enough, you can write
    your own functions in Java[tm] or, more simply,
    using the formula language. These user-defined
    functions will be dynamically loaded by XXE
    and they'll look and feel as if they were
    stock functions.

    * A formula can address table cells using the
    usual A1 notation (example:
    "table1"!$A$1:$C$3). If the formula is itself
    inside a table cell, it can even use relative
    cell references (example: A1:C3).

    * A formula can access any part of the document
    that contains it (or any part of an external
    XML document) using XPath escapes. Example:
    get the last 8 characters of the value of
    attribute id of the element containing the
    formula: right(`@id`,8).

    * A formula is represented by processing
    instruction xxe-formula. Using such specific
    processing instructions is allowed by the XML
    standard. xxe-formulas are ignored by XML
    software other than XXE.

    * A formula computes a value. This value can be
    used to add/replace the text node immediately
    after the formula or this value can be used to
    add/replace an attribute of the element
    containing the formula.

    * The spreadsheet engine is readily usable with
    any document type without having to configure
    anything.

    * XMLmind XML Editor Standard Edition will not
    save the xxe-formula processing instructions
    contained in a document. Of course, this
    restriction does not exist in Professional
    Edition.
