Sun is featuring SVG on its XML web site at:


On this site, you will find two free SVG related software packages. 
One is the SVG Slide Toolkit and the other is the Graphics2D SVG
generator (both are described below).

The software packages can be downloaded at:


What is the SVG Slide Toolkit?

  The SVG Slide Toolkit transforms an XML file that uses a specific 
  DTD into an SVG slide presentation. This allows you to separate 
  the content of a presentation from its look and feel. This separation 
  lets you modify independently the content, the presentation style 
  or both. One advantage of this is that you can then use the same 
  content for different audiences or events. Similarly, you can use 
  the same look and feel for different content.

  The software consists of a DTD for slide presentations and a set
  of XSL stylesheets to transform a slide presentation document into
  a highly graphical, interactive SVG presentation.

What is the Graphics2D SVG generator? 

 The Graphics2D SVG Generator allows Java language applications to 
 export their graphics to Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format. SVG 
 files can then be imported in the growing set of graphics editing 
 tools and viewers that support SVG. 

 On the Java 2 platform, all graphics are rendered through the 
 Graphics2D abstract class. The Java 2 Standard Edition comes with 
 multiple implementations for rendering to the screen or to a printer. 
 The Graphics2D SVG generator (SVGGraphics2D) is a new implementation 
 of the Graphics2D abstract class that generates SVG code.
 This new implementation allows all Java language applications to 
 export their graphics to SVG as easily as they render to a screen 
 or a printer.

We hope you'll enjoy using these software and we are looking forward
getting your feedback.
