Recently, many of our customers have been migrating their legacy client side software to server based applications. This indeed, as our latest white paper states, is a trend in enterprise level document creation and publishing.
Business critical documents must always be up-to-date and customized depending upon the recipient or the publisher. The recently released TX Text Control Server for ASP.NET (incl. Windows Forms) 12.0 assists enterprises in achieving this goal.
