Pros: - Features, features, features. Everything and anything that you might like to do with XML files and some things you may not realize you could do
- Straightforward interface
- Customer support was excellent although typical menu system to talk to a real person

Cons: - Examples are not great. Too complex in some ways and not enough explanations of how to use features. Need a better set of examples and perhaps one that continues through all the features.
- Renewals are end of September which is problematic as that is in the middle of peak use time for us

Overall: - Manipulating and maintaining XML and JSON files easily.

Comments: XMLSpy is a commercial XML development environment supporting XSLT, CSS, XQuery, XML Schema and many other specifications. It offers an "XML editor, the original graphical schema designer, a code generator, file converters, debuggers, profilers, full database integration, support for WSDL, SOAP, XSLT, XPath, XQuery, and Open XML documents, plus VS .NET and Eclipse plug-ins, and more." I heavily use xml spy in my api implementation. I can not imagine my Integration carrier with out XML SPY.

Pros: It has numerous features.

Cons: Because of many features can be difficult to start using.

Overall: This is the tool if you have to do some serious work with XMLs. It fully supports different versions of WSDL and offers a tool for building schemas with great debug capability. You can run requests from the tool and see responses in raw or formatted way.
It comes in several versions with different pricing and functionalities. I have only used the lowest pricing version and it was already enough for my needs. It's definitely the tool of choice for developers who need to communicate though WSDL and exchange data with XML.

Recommendations to other buyers: Free software like SoapUI offer some similar functionality.

Comments: If you're looking for an easy to use IDE for XML development then XML Spy is the product for you. One downside is that the program will change the default file association for txt files, making XML Spy the default.
