"We developed a B2B tool for XML and EDI data interchange. It is necessary to define the format of the EDI data. This is done in XML in our product. There are many structures in EDI messages, this is very complex. These structures are messages, segments, segmentgroups, composite dataelements and dataelements. We defined the possible structure in a DTD. It is really nice that you could use the right mouse in Xerlin to add ONLY an allowed substructure into the formatdescription of the EDI data. For example: If your cursor is on a segment, you are only allowed to add a composite dataelement or a dataelement. That works very fine in Xerlin and beginners of EDI couldn't make that many errors defining the structures." -- Stefan Heller


"Exari's SmartEditor tool, based on Xerlin, is intended to provide lawyers with a customised assembly and editing environment for contracts and other legal documents. The SmartEditor:

  • enables lawyers to create structured legal documents with minimal knowledge of XML or DTDs
  • allows lawyers to create legal documents in a modular way (ie by importing and exporting clauses, paragraphs and other component parts)
  • provides lawyers with an intuitive and user-friendly editing environment that is, as far as practicable, similar to the word processing environment they are familiar with
  • operates in a way that is consistent with the document drafting process normally undertaken by lawyers
  • provides for user-definable templates, so that complex tree structures are hidden from users"
