RenderX, Inc. and Rascal Software announced a strategic alliance where Rascal will be extending the functionality of their products to include high-quality print and PDF output using the RenderX XEP Rendering Engine. Rascal Software has embedded RenderX’s XEP product into Veredus, Rascal’s XML-based single-source authoring solution. Veredus, designed for documentation professionals, is an authoring tool for creating complete documentation projects. Veredus customers will be able to create PDF and print output through the embedded XEP software. XEP converts XML documents into a printable form (PDF or PostScript) by applying XSL Formatting Objects styling. XEP is written in Java and supports programming interfaces for XML processing, allowing it to be integrated into such applications as Veredus.,
