4. What advantages could bring
the integration of the Sferyx HTMLEditor Applet, Equation Editor and
PDFExport into the BM Lotus Notes Domino Client and Server?
In first place
this way out of the box there are delivered both advanced HTML and
Equation editing capabilities for the entire system combined with
instant PDF generation capability. Furthermore, the Sferyx HTMLEditor is
capable of publishing many files simultaneously which is very useful
when for example is pasted a Word document which contains many images
and other external linked files. This way only by submitting the form
everything is sent to the server and the entire document is published
within seconds without the need the user uploads all files separately,
renaming them and linking them back to the document. All this is done
automatically by Sferyx, also it is capable of generating unique image
filenames in order to avoid name collisions. This saves a lot of work
both for the users and the developers and gets the work done within
seconds and if you add to the whole this thing also the PDFExport it can
generate on-the-fly PDF files from the documents and publish them
together with the HTML to the server.
