Oxygen vs XML-Spy

P: n/a
We're considering which XML tool to buy, and it seems to come down
wo XML-Spy vs Oxygen. My personal view is that XML-Spy is kind of
big and slow but has slightly more features than Oxygen. We have
some simple transforms that process 30x faster on large XML files
using Oxygen. There's also a huge difference in price....

Would anyone care to share their experience, especially if you've
worked with both tools?

Thanks

Hi,

It depends on your requirements, for example we have chosen Stylus
because our XML documents are small and the users are non-technical.
The Grid view IMHO is more user-friendly than the respective ones of
Spy and Oxygen. I will choose Oxygen as the second better for our
specific requirement.

Cheers,
Lluis

I haven't worked with XML-Spy. However, I do use, and very much like,
Oxygen. Features aren't everything; Oxygen provides a good and
productive user environment.
