Features

Altova SchemaAgent 2009 is the visionary tool for analyzing and managing XML Schemas, XML instance documents, XSLT files, and WSDL file relationships, as well as viewing files used in Altova MapForce data mapping projects. SchemaAgent automatically finds relevant files in your search path and displays them in its explorer pane for easy navigation. The graphical design pane displays the files as a pool of resources, allowing you to construct complex documents from elements of existing files distributed about your network. This promotes the design of componentized files on which your group can standardize and facilitates reuse of files to reduce development times. Simply drag a file from the explorer onto the design pane, and a right-click menu lets you view all referenced, referencing, related, and linked XML Schema, XML instance, XSLT, WSDL and/or MapForce files as graphical components. Associations between files are indicated by color coded lines linking the graphical components. You can create or change import, include, and redefine (IIR) references by dragging-and-dropping connecting lines between components, and changes are propagated to all related files. XML Schemas are displayed in the design pane as graphical components with details about IIR relationships and a list of all global elements, attributes, types, etc. Components representing XML instances include a list of associated XML Schemas, XSLT files, and included namespaces. XSLT components display import and include relationships to other XSLT files and associated XML Schemas. WSDL components provide a list of imported WSDL files, imported schemas, inline schemas and definitions (port types, bindings, etc.) present in the WSDL. MapForce components list any XML Schema, XML instance, and WSDL files used as a data mapping source or target. SchemaAgent can be run stand-alone or in client/server mode to share resources in a workgroup. Control your XML assets with ease. Download Altova SchemaAgent 2009 today.

Supported dialects include RDF, RDF Schema, OWL Lite, OWL DL, and OWL Full. Tabs for classes, properties, instances, allDifferent, and ontologies let you focus in on pertinent parts of your designs. A handy Details entry helper window allows you to create new instances of RDFS or OWL classes and assign their properties quickly and easily. As you’re designing, you can switch from the graphical RDF or OWL view to the text view to see how your document is being created in either RDF/XML or N-triples format, and you can export your file from RDF/XML to N-triples or vice versa at any time. What’s more, because the RDF/XML or N-triples code is auto-generated based on your design, you can experiment with the concepts of the Semantic Web and learn without having to write any complicated code. With all this and more, SemanticWorks gives more meaning to the Web. Discover SemanticWorks, and put the Semantic Web to work for you.
