Since 2019.1

Axional Service servers were introduced in version 2019.1, all previous versions perform document transformations locallly.

1 Architecture

Axional Services are dedicated external servers which expose an API for performing certain document transformations

Axional Studio relies on the existence of Axional services server to perform the following transformations:

  • fo to pdf
  • dot to svg
  • ditaa to png

therefore, the locations of the servers must be configured in wic_conf.

In addition, Axional Studio servers must be able to reach Axional Services servers via http calls.
