Migrating a RIP from DWF to DWFx

I'm searching for documentation / samples regarding the following task:

I have got a software rip for DWF files (and for lots of other file formats as well) using dwftoolkit 7.6

I would like to add DWFx ripping capability to my rip.


Somwhere I read things like "there's an kompatibily layer so that one can re-use 95% of code" when migrating from DWF to DWFx. But sadly I didn't find a starting point...


I can not be the only one having this task?

If you look at the DWF toolkit samples, specifically W2dtest and XPSTest, you'll see that the w2d output is done using a class factory. You can change to w2x by changing that code.


As far as the package goes, you'll have to use the DWFXPackageWriter and/or DWFXPackagePublisher (SimpleXPS sample) instead of the DWF6PackageWriter.


Hope this helps,
