  • Title: Xerlin Frequently Asked Questions
    Descriptive info: Xerlin Frequently Asked Questions.. Last updated: May 2003.. 1).. What is Xerlin?.. Xerlin is an XML editing or modeling tool written in 100% Java.. It runs on any platform with JDK1.. 2 or higher.. It provides an extensible architecture where developers can plug-in their own editing screens to make editing certain elements of a DTD easier, or more specific to their application.. 2).. What do you mean by XML Modeling Tool?.. Most XML editors are just that, a text editor that has special features for XML files.. Xerlin provides a cleaner user interface for novice and power-users alike, but the actual text of the XML file is not available (yet) for direct editing by the user within the application.. 3).. How do I get Xerlin?.. The initial version of the source is available for download from our.. Distribution.. page.. We also have a.. CVS server.. available for anonymous CVS access.. 4).. What makes Xerlin different than other XML editors?.. Xerlin provides a Java plugin API that  ...   to learn XML as most other editors make you do.. 6).. What's involved in creating a custom editor for individual elements?.. You write a Swing component that implements a certain interface.. You'll be able to see how simple this is when we get the source released.. 7).. Can Xerlin handle XML schemas in addition to DTD's?.. Yes - there are still some aspects that need to be worked on, but this is part of why we're open sourcing it, so new functionality can be added by the people that need it the most.. We are working on a Xerlin wish list.. 8).. Can I integrate Xerlin into other applications?.. Yes - there is a component called the XerlinPanel which allows the Xerlin XML editor to be a added to an existing Swing application in the same way that a JButton or JComboBox could be added.. See the XerlinPanel JavaDoc for more information.. 9).. How can I get started writing plugins?.. See the.. or.. Robert Parker's Plugin Cookbook..

  • Title: DTD Plug-in Cookbook
    Descriptive info: How to Develop Xerlin DTD Plug-ins Cookbook.. Xerlin is an extensible XML editor.. For a particular XML tag you can create a custom editor frame to be displayed to the user.. Xerlin comes with its own default editor that allows modification of the attributes according to the DTD, this may be sufficient for your requirements but Xerlin also allows you to specify GIFs to be associated with each XML tag.. The way you customise Xerlin is to create a plugin jar file and place it in the directory where Xerlin can find it.. When the user selects File/New they are presented with a list of plugin editors (one for each DTD type).. This cookbook develops a DTD plugin called exampleeditor.. If all you wish to do is use the default tag editor but with your own GIFs then ignore the first two steps.. Download the Xerlin source.. src-root/ shown below is just a synonym for where the Xerlin code has been expanded.. Under the merlot/ directory create a plugins/ directory (note there already is a plugin/ directory).. Below plugins/ create exampleeditor/.. +- src-root/ | +- org/ | +- merlotxml/ | +- merlot/ | +- plugins/ | +- exampleeditor/ | +-.. ExampleEditor.. java.. From the src-root/ run the command.. \jdk1.. 2\bin\javac -extdirs "d:\program files\merlot\merlot-1.. 0\lib" \ org\merlotxml\merlot\plugins\exampleeditor\ExampleEditor.. java.. Create a jar-staging/ directory according to the tree below.. Then copy the ExampleEditor.. class into the classes/ directory and create the exampleeditor.. dtd and plugin.. xml files.. +- jar-staging | +- classes/ | | | +- org/ | | | +- merlotxml/ | | | +- merlot/ | | | +- plugins/ | | | +- exampleeditor/ | | | +- ExampleEditor.. class | +- dtd/ | | | +-.. exampleeditor.. dtd.. | +- icons/ | | | +- large.. gif | small.. gif | +-.. plugin.. xml.. To create the jar file run the following command from jar-staging/.. 2\bin\jar cvf exampleeditor.. jar *.. Copy the exampleeditor.. jar to the plugins/ directory in the runtime (installed) Xerlin directory.. Select New from the File menu, the exampleeditor DTD info should appear in the list of available DTDs.. Whenever you create an Ingredient tag, the ExampleEditor.. class is invoked (which just prints to System.. out).. Code.. package org.. merlot.. plugins.. exampleeditor; import  ...   it can put the cursor in the first * field.. XXX this should probably be handled by event listening instead */ public void grabFocus(JPanel p) { } /** * Returns true if the component editor wants a particular node hidden * from the user.. If the editor wants to filter * what the user sees in their display, it should look at the * given node, otherwise it should return false..

  • Title: Who's Using Xerlin?
    Descriptive info: Who's Using Xerlin?.. Yes, there are people using Xerlin in the real world! This page is a quick run down of who's using it, and how.. If you're using Xerlin for a project, please let us know by sending an email to.. Enhydra.. "We developed a B2B tool for XML and EDI data interchange.. It is necessary to define the format of the EDI data.. This is done in XML in our product.. There are many structures in EDI messages, this is very complex.. These structures are messages, segments, segmentgroups, composite dataelements and dataelements.. We defined the possible structure in a DTD.. It is.. really.. nice that you could use the right mouse in Xerlin to add ONLY an allowed substructure into the formatdescription of the EDI data.. For example: If your cursor is on a segment, you are only allowed to add a composite dataelement or a dataelement.. That works very fine in Xerlin and beginners of EDI couldn't make that many errors defining the structures.. " -- Stefan Heller.. Exari.. "Exari's SmartEditor tool, based on Xerlin, is intended to provide lawyers with a customised assembly and editing environment for contracts and other legal documents.. The SmartEditor:.. enables  ...   document drafting process normally undertaken by lawyers.. provides for user-definable templates, so that complex tree structures are hidden from users".. -- Justin Lipton..

Appendices.. A References.. B DTD Plugin DTD.. C Action Plugin DTD.. This document describes the Xerlin Plugin architecture, and how developers can use it to extend Xerlin with their own implementations.. The plugin architecture is still rather new, so make sure you have the latest version of this document which matches the latest version of Xerlin you are using.. Throughout this document, we will use examples from existing Xerlin plugins.. Plugins for Xerlin are provided in a bundled jar format similar to Web Applications [.. SERVLET.. ].. These jar files contain the configuration of the plugin, its classes, and any resources such as icons and DTD files the plugin requires.. Although Xerlin supports different plugin types, all Xerlin plugins contain a "plugin.. xml" file, which contains all of the configuration for that plugin.. There are two different ways to supply classes in a plugin.. Individual classes can be stored in a.. classes.. directory.. Jar files can be stored in a.. lib.. This is basically modeled after the way that Web Applications work.. [.. ].. A DTD plugin allows you to customize Xerlin to support your specific DTD.. These customizations include custom editors and icons that map to elements of the DTD.. This section defines all of the different settings in plugin.. xml for a DTD plugin.. dtd-plugin.. element is the top-level element in a plugin.. xml file for a DTD plugin.. It has no attributes.. All of the following elements are children of the.. element unless otherwise indicated.. Any time a resource file is indicated (the DTD file, for instance,) you must specify a relative path.. The base directory of this path will be the plugin's root directory.. So, for instance, the following entry:.. file dtd/vxml.. dtd /file.. would be found in.. [xerlin-directory]/plugins/vxml/dtd/vxml.. during development, and as an entry in.. [xerlin-directory]/plugins/vxml.. jar.. once the plugin is deployed.. name.. element allows you to specify a short name for your plugin.. This will appear as a menu item under the "Help, About plugins" menu item.. name VoiceXML /name.. longName.. element allows you to specify a long name for your plugin.. longName Voice eXtensible Modeling Language Plugin for Xerlin /longName.. version.. element allows you to specify a version number for your plugin.. version 1.. 0 /version.. author.. element allows you to specify an author name for your plugin.. author Tim McCune /author.. url.. element allows you to specify a URL where users can find out more about your plugin.. url http://www.. org /url.. dtd.. element allows you to specify the DTD that your plugin is associated with.. It contains several  ...   is the name of an element that this icon should be used to represent.. Multiple elements can be specified for a single icon.. icon source="icons/audio.. gif" smallSource="icons/audio_s.. gif" element audio /element /icon.. The following graphic demonstrates an editor from the VoiceXML DTD plugin.. tree-table.. element defines custom columns that should appear in the tree-table for this plugin.. The text that should appear for each column can also be defined.. column.. element represents each column of the treetable.. Each column has a name specified by the.. attribute and a desription specified by the.. attribute.. may be the name of an attribute such as.. IDREF.. Condition.. If the.. is set equal to.. ~.. the description is determined by the children of the.. display-text.. tree-table column name="Description" attribute="~"/ column name="Condition" attribute="condition"/ /tree-table.. element defines a custom order to be tried in order to determine the descriptive text for an element.. default-property-order.. element specifies the order of the attributes/child text to specify an elements descriptive text.. attribute-type.. element specifies an attribute to be be tried for the descriptive text..
