The Archive contains a Fude.exe file which is all you need to run the application. It does not need to be “installed”. The application keeps local cache in “C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR-LOGON-NAME\Application Data\witha\Fude”. You can delete the folder using Cleaner.exe in the zip archive.

Souce:

Core Atom component source is available at Google Project Hosting site.

  • file extension <=> MIME/Media-Type (or whatever) mapping .
  • many, many things.

Version history

eXeve

eXconv - beta

eXeve is the software for Web Service API developers. You can create, edit any type of XML documents and use this to test RESTfull Web API, such as The Atom Publishing Protocol, right from the application.

eXeve is a successor to the opensource xml editor “Open eXeed”.

Key Features

  • Visually design, create, edit XML documents in both treeview and source code.
  • Preview XSLT transformation result in both built-in browser and source code.
  • Check well-formedness of your XML documents. Validate XML documents against DTD.
  • Publish HTTP requests right from the application with one click.
  • It’s free (as in beer).

You can “Get”, “Post”, “Put”, “Delete”..etc to any API endopoint with the XML document you’re editing. You get all headers and body(XML) returned from a server. (Basic and WSSE authentication support are built-in)

These pictures tell (allmost) everything.


the main screen with HTTP response window.

the main screen with XSLT transformation preview.

the main screen with treeview and listview hidden.

showing an error in XML document.

showing a response from a server. it’s little hard to read because there is no indent.

once you click “format XML” bottom, you see a pretty formated xml source.

Requirements

  • Windows 98SE/ME/NT4/2000/XP (English or Japanese version only)
  • Internet Explorer 6 or up.

Note

I have’t tested this on English version of the Windows. So, change the font if you don’t like the editor’s default font by editing ini file. here is the haw-to:

look into the folder where you installed eXeve. once you launch eXeve.exe, it will produce “eXeve.ini” file. close the application if running. then, open the “eXeve.ini” file with a text editor of your choice, find the line where it says:
EditorFontName=some thing
change “some thing” to whatever the font you like.

Limitation

Although, you can create, edit, and save document in UTF-8 or in other unicode charset, eXeve currently does not come with full Unicode support. When you open a utf-8 encoded document, text will be converted to an ansi charset, then when you save the document, it will convert back to utf-8.
