ANN: COM wrapper for RenderX XEP v3 available
RenderX, http://www.renderx.com/ , has released a COM wrapper to its XSL-FO formatter, XEP, http://www.renderx.com/FO2PDF.html .
The wrapper makes it possible to run XEP in Win32 environments that support
Microsoft COM architecture. It uses JNI (Java Native Interface) to translate
COM methods to Java virtual machine calls. The wrapper requires Sun JDK/JRE
version 1.2.2 or above to be installed on the host computer.
The wrapper has the following features:
- a graphical, InstallShield-based installation wizard;
- a configuration utility;
- code samples that show how to access XEP COM interface from various
* Visual Basic;
This package is available as a free add-on to all users of Developer (full and stamped)
and Server (full and stamped) editions of XEP 3.x. It can be downloaded from xAttic shop
at http://shop.xattic.com/extras.cgi . Please keep your license
key file (etc/license.txt) at hand; you will be asked to
upload it to the server.
We are looking for feedback, comments, and opinions: they are important
for us to develop the component further.
