Thanks for your email. We are using 20.1, and while it meets some of our
needs, it is lacking in a few places. The primary one is that it doesn't
generate test records off a JSON schema. We know we can make test/blank
records manually, but our schema is going through a number of changes right
now and it would be more useful if we could generate these automatically.
And, we know it is possible to do this since we've done it with XMLSpy -
again just hoping for a Mac option. Oxygen seems to generate test records
for XML but just not for JSON.
