Open Source tools
Kernow is a graphical
front-end for Saxon. This is an open-source product developed by Andrew Welch. It provides an effective alternative to the
command line interface for users who prefer a GUI for running ad-hoc transformations.
On MAC OS/X, Todd Ditchendorf has produced XSLPalette, which is
designed to integrate with your own choice of text editor to provide XSLT development and debugging support.
Commercial Editors and Debuggers
A number of commercial XML IDEs provide support for XML, XSLT, and/or XQuery editing and debugging,
with the ability to configure Saxon as the chosen XSLT/XQuery processor. These include:
Stylus Studio: offers XSLT, XQuery, and XML Schema
development and debugging, all using Saxon. This is currently the only
IDE that offers Saxon-SA built-in.
oXygen offers XSLT and XML Schema development
and debugging for Saxon. Integrates Saxon-B, and works with Saxon-SA which you must purchase separately.
A budget XML Editor and Debugger for Saxon is EditiX,
with prices starting at $22.
XML Spy from Altova allows you to configure
Saxon as your XSLT or XQuery processor, but does not provide Saxon debugging. There is also
a third-party plug-in
that allows Saxon-SA to be used for schema validation.
xqDoc is a Javadoc-like documentation tool for XQuery. It works with Saxon, and is
available either as a free-standing tool from http://xqdoc.org/
or as part of Stylus Studio.
