CambridgeDocs has announced the Linux versions of its xDoc Content Transformation Server (xCTS). The xDoc Content Transformation Server is designed to provide XML-based transformations of documents and content from multiple legacy source formats into XML and then publishing to desktop formats, such as Adobe PDF, HTML, and Microsoft Word documents.
The xCTS includes the xDoc Conversion Server, which can transform documents from legacy formats, such as PDF, HTML, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word and WordPerfect into meaningful and well-structured XML. The transformation can retain the look and feel, layout, graphics and content of the source document. The xCTS also includes the PDF-XML Publishing server, which allows for the transformation of XML. The xCTS uses the XTE (xDoc Transformation Engine) underneath the hood, a patent-pending technology for transforming unstructured content into meaningful XML. It supports open, XML-based standards for publishing and transformation, including XSLT, and XSL:FO and can also use any XML-schema or DTD as the target or source for transformation, including DocBook XML, 3001 MIL STD, Legal XML, or customer-specific schemas or DTDs. The xCTS works with J2EE application servers, such as TomCat, EAServer, as well as with Microsoft IIS based applications. The server can be invoked on Linux using its Servlet API or its Java API. The xCTS is available immediately and pricing starts at $9,500 per server. Linux is the first of a number of Unix platforms that will be fully supported by CambridgeDocs XML Content Backbone.
