  1. Front End: Document editor and viewer
    Text Control provides front-end packages (npm, NuGet) for many supported client-side frameworks including Angular, React and ASP.NET. If you want to use React, vanilla JavaScript, PHP or any other client-side framework, DS Server is the right product choice.

  2. Back End: ASP.NET or something else?
    If you are running ASP.NET (Core) as your backend, you can select between TX Text Control .NET Server for ASP.NET or DS Server. If you are running anything else such as Apache or Tomcat, DS Server is the perfect fit.

Using DS Server, your application is independent from TX Text Control. Document processing functionality is provided by the "out-of-the-box" container (DS Server) that is hosted separately on your premises.
