Visually create Documents, simply add XML Data

Creating personalized documents using database publishing or print-on-demand processes gets increasingly important.

XSLfast enables you to create countless corporate documents in a very short period of time. XSLfast supports the modern XML and XSL-FO technologies, so the resulting layout stylesheets can be easily integrated in many workflows and environments.

WYSIWYG Layout and Document Editor

XSLfast shows you a graphical preview of your layout at all times. New objects can be directly created from the XSL tree, visible to the left of the window. Attributs of every selected object are listed to the lower left for overview and quick editing.

Potential applications for XSLfast

Forms processing:

Design forms and merge these with XML data, or data coming out of data bases. This is useful for mail merging, forms processing and all typical document oriented applications. (Works via XSL-FO.)

Cross media publishing:

XSLfast allows to find a document and merge the information with data into different output formats. You will need XSLfast to take the same information to be transferred into PDF, InDesign or XML.

Automatic publishing process:

Use XSLfast to design layout stylesheets. Then use this stylesheet to render information within an automatic publishing process like print-on-demand or database publishing. (Works via XSL-FO.)
