Dear XML Schema-dev,

We are pleased to announce the release of XML Spy 4.3 Suite, available
for immediate download as a free trial, or a free upgrade for XML Spy
4.x customers.

The following is a summary of several key new features in XML Spy 4.3

- New SOAP Debugger: acts as a web services proxy between a web services
client and server, letting you inspect WSDL files, single-step through
web services transactions, inspect every request and response XML
document, set breakpoints on SOAP functions (either on the request or on
the response), and even define conditional breakpoints that trigger if a
certain request or response contains selected data that is specified by
means of an XPath query.  XML Spy 4.3 supports web services development
and debugging on all of the major web services platforms including Java
2 Enterprise Edition and Microsoft .NET.

- New XPath Analyzer: Facilitates testing and debugging of XPath
expressions for use in XSLT stylesheets or XML Schema Identity
Constraints.  The XPath Analyzer can be used in either Grid or Text
Views to evaluate & visualize in real-time, the resulting node set of
any XPath expression. If the result is a list of nodes, each node can be
highlighted in the grid or text views simply by clicking on the node in
the result list window.

- Authoring Support for JavaServer Pages and many other J2EE
configuration files.

- Microsoft SQL Server 2000 SQLXML support: The XML Spy 4 IDE's schema
editor now includes full development support for XML Schemas which
include Microsoft SQLXML extensions, for use in mapping XML schemas to
relational databases.  SQLXML is a powerful technology which effectively
bridges the gap between Extensible Markup Language (XML) and relational
data by creating XML views of relational data, abstracting away the
underlying data format.
