GUI Development tools for XSLT

Does anyone know of any GUI tools for developing XSLT? Support for XSLT 2.0
would be nice.

The only thing I know of XFactor, and I'm just wondering if there's anything
else.

TIA,

Depends on your understanding of "GUI tool", a quick search on Google

http://www.google.com/search?q=xslt+ide

should take you to

http://www.activestate.com/Products/Visual_XSLT/
http://www.vbxml.com/xselerator/
http://www.stylusstudio.com/xsl.html

Finding tools with XSLT 2.0 support would be difficult, W3C does not
plan to complete the XSLT 2.0 Recommendation before the end of this
year.

Thanks for the reply and the information. I tried searching Google using
the terms "GUI XSLT", which didn't yield much.

Hi,

"XSL IDE" gives better results.

Hi,

You should also have a look at XML Spy from Altova. It includes a visual
XSL Designer that supports transformation from XML to HTML.

Thanks, I will.

Yes, surprisingly (at least to me), "GUI XSLT" didn't really give any useful
results.

Richard,
In addition to the other comments I normally use VS.NET 2003 with a XSLT
schema.

See "XSLT Schema v1.1.1" at:

http://www.fesersoft.com/dotNet/

Granted it does not give you a WYSIWYG, however I find it usable...

Hope this helps
Jay

Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out. As I'm relatively inexperience in
creating XSLT stylesheets, I'm testing/experimenting constantly. So the
more efficient I can do that, the better. For the immediate future, I
probably will stay XForce while I see if I come across anything better.

If you are just trying to take XML and get it to HTML, I'd like to suggest
Microsoft Office 2003 Infopath.

You load the schema into Infopath. Then either use the default view or
create a new one.
Drag and drop data values from your schema (in the data heirarchy) directly
on the view. Use tables, links, all kinds of fun stuff, in the view.

When you are done, save the Infopath. Then export it to files. You will
get back an XSL for each view.

Simple, and easy. Does require that you have Office 2003 though. (Doesn't
everyone?)
