How Windward Solutions Works

Step 1

Design Your Smart Documents

  • Connect one or multiple datasources to your DOCX, XLSX, or PPTX template.
  • Design your template within Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, or PowerPoint), with all of its layout and formatting capabilities.
  • Use conditional logic to customize your content inline, creating a smart document.

Step 2

Process Your Data in the Engine

  • Add the engine library to your application (Java: link to JAR files, .NET: add DLLs as resources, RESTful install an ASP.NET web app).
  • Instantiate a Report object and pass it the template, datasource(s) and output destination.
  • Watch the powerful Windward Engine merge your template with your data to create the output document/report.
