Convert XML to HTML with Arbortext Editor without opening a windows?

Hello,

We are running batch routines from the command line to convert XML to HTML. For each document, Arbortext opens, shows the window and closes. Does someone know how to do that in a "hidden" mode without opening and Arbortext session window? Thanks for your help!

The officially sanctioned batch system for Arbortext is called Arbortext Publishing Engine. It is much more expensive than Editor though. You could try the "Adepters" list at ptcuser.org, someone there may know a trick to hide or suppress the window. Worst case I suppose you could have everything run inside one Editor session and keep the session minimised.

I'm assuming you're currently using the built in xml2html tool. What we've done is have an external xsl stylesheet with our conversion rules on a shared drive. Using ACL we then do a flat save of the current xml and then call the transform. This is a Windows trick basically usind CMD and that window itself can be hidden via the ACL call.

Have you tried the -c option for editor.exe?

See the Arbortext Editor's Help Center topic "Startup Command Syntax".
