XML Nillable (and xs:nil) Support in C++, C#, VB.Net, Java and Visual Basic 6 XML Data Binding

Liquid XML Studio 2010 XML Data Binding now supports XML Nillable (and xs:nil) in all languages (C++, C#, VB.Net, Java and Visual Basic 6).

This is good news for those of you using our XML Code Generator with an XML standard that uses the Nillable attribute in its XML Schema.

This has been an outstanding request for some time and we are now happy to say we support this feature in Liquid XML studio 2010.

Visual Studio 2010® plug-in supported in Service Pack 1 (SP1) - available now

Liquid XML 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1) with Visual Studio 2010® plug-in supported in - available now.

Full support for Visual Studio 2010® - over 40 new features and enhancements plus general performance and stability improvements.

After the successful launch of Liquid XML Studio 2010 in January, Liquid Technologies have announced the availability of Service Pack 1 (SP1), which contains over 40 new features and enhancements plus general performance and stability improvements.

Following hot on the heels of the Microsoft Visual Studio 2010® launch, Liquid XML Studio 2010 offers full support for its plug-ins in Visual Studio 2010®. The Graphical XSD Editor, XPath viewer and Web Services Test Client plug-ins take you way beyond what Visual Studio offers XML developers out of the box.

This, combined with the powerful data binding code generator that comes with the Developer Edition of Liquid XML Studio, and which now offers runtime support for the newly released Visual C++ 10.0 and .Net 4.0, means that Liquid XML Studio 2010 SP1, is a “must have”, for all XML developers using Visual Studio 2010®.

Other new features include:

• Visual Schema Agent - visualises the hierarchical structure of interrelated XML Schema and allows the user to easily navigate between the schema with a single click of the mouse.

• XPath - build an XPath expression for any XML element directly from within the XML document by right clicking on the element.

• Find in Files – Improved find and replace – search projects, files or folders on your computer that are related by schema inclusion.

• Canonical form conversion – all XML documents can be converted to their canonical form which allows documents to be easily compared at their logical level, facilitating the digital signing of documents.

A full list of the new and enhancements can be viewed on the what's new page. Liquid XML Studio 2010 SP1 is a free upgrade available to all existing Liquid XML Studio 2010 licence holders or previous version users with a current USPP (Upgrade Support Protection Plan) contract.
