Interfacing with a Content Manager
Content managers commonly require documents in a particular
format and also require an index. However, documents come
in a variety of print languages and rarely have indexes.
To resolve this HostServe has been designed to work as an
interface to most content management software packages.
American Printware’s HostServe
is a Windows based document delivery and interconnectivity
system capable of transforming mainframe, network, and web
data streams (SNA Character String, LCDS DJDE/Metacode,
XES, AFP, IPDS, Xerox VIPP™, Line Printer, PCL, PostScript,
PDF, TIFF, JPEG, DOC, RTF, HTML, EMF) into an array of output
formats (PCL, PostScript, PDF, TIFF, JPEG, BMP, HTML, XML,
ASCII or Database, with associated indexes) and offers the
user great freedom in the delivery and formatting of vital
business information. Users can view, edit/repurpose, index,
sort, print, and archive documents—regardless of origination—anywhere,
at any time using a wide variety of printers, viewers, archival,
content management or document management systems.
HostServe when used as a “Content Management Interface”,
- HostServe accepts the following data types: PCL, PostScript,
PDF, DJDE, XES, Xerox VIPP™, AFP,
IPDS, TIFF, .DOC, .RTF and Line Printer.
- HostServe detects the type of document using its sophisticated
page processing capabilities. Using criteria supplied
by the customer, HostServe uses information directly from
the page to build the index. The index can then be placed
anywhere the customer wishes.
- HostServe then converts the print files into the correct
format for the customer’s content manager. The document
type provides the information for the naming and bursting.
These formats can be:
- PDF Named and Burst by document. PDF documents are
indexable and text searchable.
- TIFF single or multi-pages, named by document (any
index field). Resolution can be set to desired value,
600, 300, and 204 dpi.
- DJDE/Meta, DJDE LCDS named and burst by document
- PCL5e named and burst by document
- HostServe can also distribute the Document to its final
destination. This allows HostServe to both place the document
into the content manager and distribute it for print or
viewing at a location of the customer’s choosing. See
