The Imaging Source Announces LiveDocx
The software manufacturer The Imaging Source announced the latest member of its family of word processing components: LiveDocx, designed to generate PDF documents with a web service.
A current trend in business software is the generation of Adobe PDF documents on the server. At a central location in a company's network, Microsoft Word templates are populated with data to produce invoices or quotations. The resulting documents can be saved in a number of formats or sent directly to the printer.
LiveDocx offers unrivaled technology to provide such document generation services over a standardized SOAP interface. Hence, different types of software, for example, ASP.NET web applications, Windows applications, or applications from entirely different operating systems can access LiveDocx.
The advantages of centralized document creation are numerous: Templates can be stored and deployed from one single central location. Various types of application architectures can access LiveDocx and can thus generate or convert documents. The generated documents can be displayed directly in a web browser, using the shipped viewer, with no further plugins or extensions.
LiveDocx supports the most popular word processing formats (DOCX, DOC, and RTF) and the default format of TX Text Control, TXD. In addition, documents can be exported as Adobe PDF files.
The component can be tested as a web service at www.livedocx.com. It does not require any further software or installation.
