Altova Version 2020 Debuts

October 10, 2019

Altova released Version 2020 of Altova MissionKit desktop developer tools and server software products. This release introduces a brand new, innovative JSON Grid View that greatly speeds JSON editing in XMLSpy, support for JSON Lines across multiple products, a new interactive XULE editor for XBRL, and much more.

"We have heard from customers who are progressively utilizing XMLSpy for their JSON development projects, and we are excited to introduce them to the new JSON Grid View in XMLSpy 2020. Grid View offers a graphical representation of JSON data with powerful editing features like automatic type detection, in-cell commands, XQuery filters for modifying the view, and XQuery formulas for generating additional output from the JSON data," said Alexander Falk, President and CEO for Altova. "Users can even generate charts from their JSON data directly in JSON Grid. These new upgrades are designed to make JSON editing faster and easier than a text based JSON editor and, in fact, take JSON viewing, querying, and editing to a whole new level unparalleled in any other tool."

A highlight of some additional new features in this release:

  • New JSON functionality includes the revolutionary JSON Grid View as well as support for the JSON Lines and JSON with Comments formats. Chart creation from JSON data and new JSON pretty-print options have also been introduced.
  • Support for OAuth 2.0 authorization has been added to products that process data from Web services calls, including MapForce, MapForce Server, and FlowForce Server.
  • Version 2020 also debuts support for XULE, a language from XBRL.US for defining assertions and validation rules to enforce specific business rules in XBRL files. XMLSpy now supports XULE processing and introduces the industry's first interactive XULE editor. XULE processing is also provided by RaptorXML Server.
  • Support for CSV/CSV and CSV/database comparisons has been added to DiffDog and DiffDog Server. DiffDog now supports CSV as a native format for comparison and cannot only compare CSV to CSV, but also supports mixed comparisons of CSV and database data a must-have for anyone working with databases.
  • StyleVision introduces a new XPath Debugger and a redesigned XPath window to make defining and testing XPath expressions during report creation even easier.
  • Database support across the product line has been updated to include the latest versions of several databases: SQL Server 2019, Access 2019 and Oracle 18 and 19.
  • Integration with Visual Studio and Eclipse IDEs now also supports the latest versions: Visual Studio 2019 and Eclipse 4.11, 4.12. Code generation for Visual Studio 2019 is also available.
