Hi,

Please request additional features you'd like to see in the xml search and replace tool.

I have the following features in mind:

1. Use regular expression in the search string

2. Allow XPath expression in the search string

I would like the tool to be able to replace an element content regardless of its content.

For example in this XML portion describing an RDBMS table access, I would like to replace the server name.
I don't have to know what is the current value of Server element. I try to change it anyway.

  <Connectors>
    <Connector class="CAssetCenterConnector">
      <Configuration>
        <Comment>"connnector to Hardware table"</Comment>
        <Server>MTSERVER</Server>

...

So the file become :

  <Connectors>
    <Connector class="CAssetCenterConnector">
      <Configuration>
        <Comment>"connnector to Hardware table"</Comment>
        <Server>MY_LOCAL_SERVER</Server>

...
