New features across the product line include:
- AI Assistant in XMLSpy immediately boosts productivity for XML and JSON development tasks by generating schemas, instance documents, and sample data based on natural language prompts. The AI Assistant can also generate XSL, XPath, and XQuery code. Generated code can be copied, opened in a new document, or sent to the XPath/XQuery window for further review and refinement.
- MapForce PDF Extractor is an easy-to-use, visual utility for defining the structure of a PDF document and extracting data from it. That data is then available for mapping to other formats in MapForce, including Excel, JSON, databases, XML, etc., for conversion, data integration, and ETL processes.
- AI integration in DatabaseSpy includes an AI Assistant for generating SQL statements, sample data, table relations, and more, as well as AI extensions to explain, pretty print, and complete SQL statements. This AI functionality can offer a significant productivity boost for users of the multi-database tool and SQL editor.
