Altova has announced availability of its XMLSpy 2010 XML editor. In Version 2010, XMLSpy delivers new functionality for users working with WSDL 2.0 and JSON technologies; enhanced support for working with XBRL data, including creating XBRL taxonomies, generating comprehensive XBRL documentation, and finding and sorting data in large taxonomies and instance files; and a redesigned and optimized scripting environment and forms editor for accessing and interacting with the XMLSpy API.
The graphical WSDL editor in XMLSpy 2010 supports both WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0. XMLSpy even supports one-click conversion between WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0 files. Several enhancements have been added to XMLSpy 2010 for working with XBRL data. The new XBRL Taxonomy Wizard complements the existing graphical XBRL Taxonomy Editor by giving users a head start when extending an XBRL taxonomy or even starting from scratch creating a new taxonomy. A user simply enters a company's name or ticker, and the XBRL Taxonomy Wizard automatically creates and saves required taxonomy files and displays the taxonomy in XBRL view, where it can be edited and refined in a graphical manner.
