Altova StyleVision 2021 Enterprise Edition

The StyleVision installation package contains an example Java project, located in the the API\Java subfolder of the Examples folder :



Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10



This folder contains Java examples for the StyleVision API. You can test it directly from the command line using the batch file BuildAndRun.bat, or you can compile and run the example project from within Eclipse. See below for instructions on how to use these procedures.


File list

The Java examples folder contains all the files required to run the example project. These files are listed below. If you are using a 64-bit version of the application, some filenames contain _x64 in the name. These filenames are indicated with (_x64).



Java-COM bridge: DLL part


Java-COM bridge: Java library part


Java classes of the StyleVision API


Java example source code


Batch file to compile and run example code from the command line prompt. Expects folder where Java Virtual Machine resides as parameter.


Eclipse project helper file


Eclipse project file


Javadoc file containing help documentation for the Java API





What the example does

The example starts up StyleVision and performs a few operations, including opening and closing documents. When done, StyleVision stays open. You must close it manually.


Start StyleVision: Starts StyleVision, which is registered as an automation server, or activates StyleVision if it is already running.

Open OrgChart.pxf: Locates one of the example documents installed with StyleVision and opens it.

Iteration and Changing the View Mode: Changes the view of all open documents to Text View. The code also shows how to iterate through open documents.

Event Handling: Shows how to handle StyleVision events.

Shut down StyleVision: Shuts down StyleVision.


You can modify the example in any way you like and run it.


Running the example from the command line

To run the example from the command line, open a command prompt window, go to the Java folder of the API Examples folder (see above for location), and then type:


 buildAndRun.bat "<Path-to-the-Java-bin-folder>"


The Java binary folder must be that of a JDK 1.5 or later installation on your computer. Press the Return key. The Java source in RunStyleVision.java will be compiled and then executed.


Loading the example in Eclipse

Open Eclipse and use the Import | Existing Projects into Workspace command to add the Eclipse project file (.project) located in the Java folder of the API Examples folder (see above for location). The project RunStyleVision will then appear in your Package Explorer or Navigator. Select the project and then the command Run as | Java Application to execute the example.


Note:You can select a class name or method of the Java API and press F1 to get help for that class or method.

The Java source code in the example file RunStyleVision.java is listed below with comments.
