XPATH expressions with XPATH Visualizer

With regards to my last post, I went looking for a good XPATH expression tool after the Advanced features of my Home version of XML Spy ran out. I found a great free tool at TopXML.com from Dimitre Novachev called "XPATH Visualizer" the link is http://www.topxml.com/xpathvisualizer/. This is a great browser based tool that allows you to open an XML doc and create XPATH expressions which it then highlights the results of in the doc. Nice for getting the syntax just right before adding to your BizTalk map or orchestration. It also handles XPATH functions like count and sum.

My only lament isthe small field for entering the XPATH expressions, but that's done with HTML so alittle modification takes care of that.

Definitely worth a look if you have the need for such a tool.
