dc.description.abstractBonXai is a versatile schema specification language expres- sively equivalent to XML Schema. It is not intended as a replacement for XML Schema but it can serve as an addi- tional, user-friendly front-end. It offers a simple way and a lightweight syntax to specify the context of elements based on regular expressions rather than on types. In this demo we show the front-end capabilities of BonXai and exemplify its potential to offer a novel way to view existing XML Schema Definitions. In particular, we present several usage scenarios specifically targeted to showcase the ease of specifying, mod- ifying, and understanding XML Schema Definitions through BonXai.-
