XMLFox Advance supports Validation an XML against an XSD schema. XML content could be validated against an XSD schema located inside your XML and against an XSD schema located outside as well.

XMLFox Advance considers any XML file as a database. Since the XML is a database it has tables that are related to each other somehow. The tool provides Relationships interface window with the possibility to add/update/delete XML tables.

The Table Design Interface allows you to modify an existing table structure in your XML or create a new one. You can invoke the Table Design Interface by clicking on the drop-down Grid toolbar button when a table is selected.
If you would like to save your updates that you made for tables structures you need to assign the XSD schema inside your XML first. The table structures will be stored in the XSD schema within your XML for further using. For this case the Table Design interface has the special "Assign XSD to XML now" button that allows you to do that.

The XMLFox Advance Filter interface helps you to display only those records in an XML table that match one or more criteria. For example, you want to see the products whose price is equal $50. Instead of opening the whole table in Grid view and scanning the entire list, you can apply a filter.
You can specify multiple criteria in a single filter. You can also apply a filter that is based on multiple columns.

The XMLFox Advance provides the possibility to add/update/delete XML tables by using the Relationships interface.
