About XSL Report Designer

A design program which allows you to transform XML files into reports and forms with XSL-FO.

Antenna House XSL Report Designer V2.0 is two software products in one. First, it's a design program that greatly simplifies the creation of your complex XML reports and forms with a user-friendly Windows GUI. Second, it's a Runtime Engine that merges the layout and your XML data to produce XSL-FO for creating PDF or print files with Antenna House XSL Formatter.With XSL Report Designer you can easily map the relationship of each element of your content and how it should be placed, formatted and processed in the final report or form.

To print forms or reports you no longer need to create XSL stylesheets by hand or write complex programs to merge data. Creating the layout can now be done without programming using the intuitive GUI of XSL Report Designer. You can then save your design as an XSL Stylesheet or you can save it as a project file that can then be used with XSL Report Designer's Runtime Engine to produce XSL-FO with your XML data and layout merged into one file. With Antenna House XSL Formatter you can then format the XSL-FO for print, PDF or screen whether it's 1 page or 100,000 pages.

XSL Report Designer is designed to work with Antenna House XSL Formatter both while creating the design and then to produce the final output. Based on the W3C XSL-FO Recommendation XSL Report Designer uses XSL Formatter to handle complex formatting requirements and to preview the forms and merged content while creating the design. Several extensions developed by Antenna House for XSL Formatter are used to meet your complex formatting and output needs. Antenna House XSL Formatter V3.1 or later is a prerequisite for XSL Report Designer.

This easy-to-use tool takes the mystery out of and greatly simplifies the task of producing reports and forms for use with XML data and allows organizations to expand their use of XSL-FO, standards and Antenna House Formatter.
