Altova StyleVision Server is based on the built-in report and document generation engine developed for StyleVision. StyleVision Server renders XML and/or XBRL data into HTML, RTF, PDF, or Microsoft Word files based on StyleVision stylesheets and supporting design elements uploaded by StyleVision over a network connection. StyleVision Server can operate under the management of FlowForce Server or in a standalone configuration executed from a command line.
After a StyleVision 2018 .SPS stylesheet is designed and tested, it can be deployed on Altova FlowForce Server and executed by StyleVision Server to automate business report and document generation.

StyleVision PXF Files
The Portable XML Form (PXF) file format was developed by Altova to package SPS stylesheets with related files including the XML schema file, source XML file, image files used in the design, and XSLT files for transformation output formats. PXF files include all the elements required for document rendering by StyleVision Server in a single package.
StyleVision includes stylesheets in PXF files for processing by StyleVision Server, and uploads them over a network to FlowForce Server for use in FlowForce Server jobs.
