Altova StyleVision Server is an implementation of Altova StyleVision's built-in execution engine. It operates as a module of Altova's FlowForce Server, and it is also available as a standalone server product.
StyleVision Server executes transformation packages that have been deployed to a FlowForce Server. These transformations are initiated by FlowForce Server based on a variety of programmable time triggers, file triggers, or remote triggers. Additionally, StyleVision Server functionality can be invoked via the command line.
System requirements, installation and licensing
StyleVision Server is supported on the following operating systems:
Windows 7 SP1 with Platform Update, Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows 11
Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with Platform Update or newer
•CentOS 7 or newer
•RedHat 7 or newer
•Debian 9 or newer
•Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or newer
The following libraries are required as a prerequisite to install and run the application. If the packages below are not already available on your Linux machine, run the command yum (or apt-get if applicable) to install them.
Note: If you plan to use Altova's Charts functionality, then at least one font must be installed on your system to ensure that charts will be rendered correctly. To list installed fonts, use, for example, the fc-list command of the Fontconfig library.
macOS 10.15 or newer
|Note:||If the fillable parts of a fillable PDF are missing when the PDF is opened on a macOS system, one likely cause is that Java 6 is not installed on the machine. If this is the case, you can install Java 6 from https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1572?locale=en_US. If a version newer than Java 6 has already been installed on your system, then the installation of the older Java 6 version will not affect the working of the newer version, which will be the default version of the system.|
When viewing the Help that is delivered with your Altova product in Google's Chrome browser, you might find (i) that you cannot collapse the expanded TOC in the left-hand frame, and (ii) that image miniatures cannot be expanded to full-size images by clicking on the miniature. These limitations occur because of the Same-Origin Policy (SOP) restrictions that Chrome applies. If you face these restrictions, you have the following options:
•Disable Chrome's SOP. You can do this by opening Chrome from the command line with the argument --disable-web-security. (If, after starting Chrome with web security disabled, you close the browser and restart it normally (that is, without the argument), then it will restart with web security enabled.) Note, however, that using this argument will disable the browser's web security and thereby compromise your organization's security. So this is a risky workaround, and we do not recommend it. It is better to go with one of the next two options.
•Use a browser with a SOP that allows (i) the collapsing and expanding of TOC items, and (ii) the expanding of image miniatures. For example, Firefox.
•Use Chrome with these SOP restriction. The Help's functionality is not affected in any other way besides the restrictions mentioned above.
