Currently we use ArborText for XML editing but our business requires a web-based editor that can talk to our CMS so people outside of our regular editors can make changes to the content using a web browser. We are so accustomed to ArborText and because of this requirement we are pushed to see if any other editor in the market is capable of addressing this requirment.
Can you guide if Arbortext is available/customizable for a web-based editor? If so is there a demo or sample website that I can take look.
The latest version of Arbortext Editor (5.4) has an ActiveX control for embedding Editor in other applications, including a web page. The control within the page has most of the functionality of the full Editor installation.
The ActiveX control has to be installed on the end user's machine to make this work. You can facilitate this using the Arbortext Deployment Kit. You will also probably need a concurrent license server set up to provide licensing for the casual users.
If you are interested in checking this out, look in the 5.4 help center for Embedded ActiveX control. IIRC, the Deployment Kit is a separate download from the Editor installer, which you'll need to get from the PTC support web site, but doesn't require a separate license.
