The Linux based Compound XML Document Editor (CXDE) from IBM’s software group uses Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) to provide a more customized editing experience for developers. CXDE offers a standards-based, model-driven editor for mixed-namespace XML documents such as: XHTML, XForms, XML-Events, SMIL, SVG, VoiceXML, XUL, and MathML. Another good Java-based XML free alternative is Vex.

This awsome IDE “Eclipse” just get better and better!
Praise be to Eugenia (or whoever is responsible) for making screenshots available for Vex. Helps me see what’s going on, not being familiar with such tools. It’s a shame commercial software so often does not do this. Having to install software, let alone purchase it just to see what all the fuss is often far too much trouble.
Vex looks like Conglomerate, but it’s working, and cross-platform. Nice.
Vex is kind of cool! Congrats to the author on this.
CXDE I don’t get at all. It just seems thrown together. Is there something I’m missing here? Shame on IBM for producing something like this as opposed to Vex!
Try Haystack for some other neat thing you can do with Eclipse.
License you have to agree to, after registration (ask lots of personal info).
Why “Linux based”?
IBM site says “For platform(s): Windows XP, Red Hat Linux” and the couple of demos i’ve watched are recorded on windows…
Doesn’t work on Eclipse 3.1
and slower and slower
