Schema-enforcing XML editor

P: n/a
I am looking for a data oriented schema-enforcing XML editor. By
schema-enforcing I mean an editor that doesn't just have a button to
verify the schema - I want an editor that actively enforces it and
makes it difficult or impossible to generate data not conforming to the
schema.

I have downloaded many XML editors, both free/open-source and
evaluation copies of commercial software but so far none of them fits
my requirements. Many of them don't have any support for schemas (XSD
or Relax NG). Most of the rest don't enforce it while entering data.
XMLMind comes close but its tree view is pretty awkward to use.
Compared to the formatted text view (which I don't use) it's apparent
that the tree view is not where the attention of the authors was
focused.

Any suggestions?

XML Editor in VS2005. You'll get real-time validation and intellisense.
For more info, see
article intro to XML Editor:

Have you taken a look at http://vex.sourceforge.net/ Vex - A Visual
Editor for XML (written in Java)? I didn't try it, but it is the
closest that I could find. There also is
http://kxmleditor.sourceforge.net/index.html KXML Editor, but
(according to the docs) it does not do validation, and it is completely
tied in with KDE/Qt.

Could you post or send me the list of free/open source XML editors you
have found?

Thanks,

Jeroen.

professional.
