AFP developer tools are designed for data stream developers to view, parse, and analyze AFP and IJPDS files. All utilities have a cross-platform desktop user interface for ease of use.

AFP PageMapper Utility converts AFP to XML. Designed to help data stream application developers get the information they need. It can extract information from AFP files to evaluate the original data, manipulate AFP documents and resources for customization, or simply analyze your AFP documents. This tool can be used as a first set conversion to go from AFP to many other formats including PDF. See the full AFP to PDF Converter for more details.

Utilizing the AFP PageMapper output, the XML Browser Editor allows a user to view and edit the XML output file. This utility is specialized for AFP architecture, therefore it quickly opens large XML files. It can easily handle a 4 GB file, where a traditional XML browser will be sluggish. The application includes custom configurations for the XML files produced by the TallPine AFP tool set and can easily be customized to handle other XML applications. This tool is included in the AFP PageMapper Utility license.

AFP to XML List Utility converts AFP to XML format that closely mirrors the AFP architecture standard described in the AFP MO:DCA reference manual that is managed by the AFP Consortium. The utility has a built-in XML browser capability that provides an effective means of viewing the XML file. Designed with performance in mind to quickly convert large AFP print stream files.

The XML to AFP Converter takes a PageMapper XML file and converts it to AFP. Developers can create an XML file from scratch or utilize the AFP PageMapper to generate the XML file.
