Altova MissionKit Stylevision TrainingAltova StyleVision is a WYSIWIG tool for designing documents, reports, and forms based on XML, SQL database, and XBRL inputs. It makes the power of XSLT available in an intuitive and visual design tool, and adds rich content such as charts, making it possible for designers and developers to focus on their target designs (in HTML, PDF, Word/Open XML, and other formats) rather than XSLT details. With StyleVision, a single design can be used to automatically publish in the above-mentioned formats. The same visual design tool also produces Authentic enterprise forms, which empower business users to analyze and update information stored in XML and SQL systems. This trainings helps you to understand the principles of Stylevision and to design your own documents, forms and reports based on XML and database input.
