7.10 XML Editor

The XML Editor is started from Studio. It is recommended that you use Studio to manage your projects and associated files.

The XML Editor allows files to be converted from one encoding to another encoding.

When reading a file, the XML editor can auto-detect the encoding of the XML source and convert the byte stream to Unicode characters.

If an encoding has been selected, this value will be used to convert the byte stream to Unicode characters and the XML declaration will be modified to suit the selected encoding.

When saving to a file and the encoding is auto-detect, the XML declaration encoding will be used to select a Java encoding to convert the Unicode characters to a byte stream.

If an encoding has been selected, this value will be used to convert the Unicode characters to a byte stream and the XML declaration encoding will be modified to suit the selected Java encoding.
