JMRI: Viewing XML Files

JMRI stores information about its operations and information that you create in XML files. For example, when you use the PanelPro command File ⇒ Store, your tables and panels are stored in an XML file. Other XML files hold preferences, control information, operational information, decoder contents, your roster, and more.

Although XML is a structured text format, it is complicated and not particularly easy to read. Most JMRI-created XML files can be displayed with more formatting (easier to read and print) in a web browser using "XSLT stylesheets" (provided in the JMRI distribution). This sample panel XML file is an example of how this formatting looks.
