Automation with RaptorXML Server

Home Prev Top Next

RaptorXML Server (hereafter also called RaptorXML for short) is Altova's third-generation, super-fast XML and XBRL processor. It is optimized for the latest standards and parallel computing environments. Designed to be highly cross-platform capable, the engine takes advantage of today's ubiquitous multi-core computers to deliver lightning-fast processing of XML and XBRL data.


RaptorXML is available in two editions which can be downloaded from the Altova download page (


RaptorXML Server is a very fast XML processing engine with support for XML, XML Schema, XSLT, XPath, XQuery, and more.

RaptorXML+XBRL Server supports all the features of RaptorXML Server with the additional capability of processing and validating the XBRL family of standards.


If you generate code in XSLT  or in XQuery, MapForce creates a batch file called DoTransform.bat which is placed in the output folder that you choose upon generation. Executing the batch file calls RaptorXML Server and executes the XSLT (or XQuery) transformation on the server.


If you intend to execute or automate MapForce mappings for other outputs on a server, see Automation with MapForce Server.


Note:You can also preview the XSLT and XQuery code using the built-in engine.
