Working With DTD or Schema

Tags and Attribute Propositions from a Schema or DTD

Working with a document definition (schema or DTD), the list of tags and attributes proposals for each tag will be filled with the information in the document definition.

The description of each proposal will also be filled from the document definition, provided the element definition has an annotation of type documentation. Ej:

<xsd:element name="products" type="Product" minOccurs="1" maxOccurs="unbounded" >
<xsd:annotation> <xsd:documentation>
Product's Order definition </xsd:documentation>
</xsd:annotation> </xsd:element>

It also suggest attribute values from restrictions defined in XSD for an attribute

Namespaces Defined in Schema

If you're defining several namespaces in a xml document the editor can recognize them and propose tags according to the namespace where each of them are defined.

Plus, when you start typing you can forget about in which namespace is defined the tag you want to use until its time to select it from the proposition list since proposals are filtered by tag name not by namespace name thus eliminating the unnecesary typing to filter first by namespace and then by tag name inside the selected namespaceR.


Through the plugin's configuration is possible to define templates to be used inside documents as propossals using Ctrl+Space.

Templates can be edited in Window->Preferences->Rinzo XML->Templates

Once selected, variable values should be completed. This templates are similar to the ones used inside the rest of the eclipse editors.
